Thanks to the Oatmeal, I now know the truth. She knows that I know that she knows that I know. She is watching me. I am waiting for her next move. It's like a game. Like a game of what?... yes, cat and mouse, my friend. Only this time she is playing for keeps.
This particular book was being offered for dirt cheap on Kindle ($1.99 I think it was!). The book is a collection of many different 'sketches' (he is a computer graphics artist) and comics from over several years. Not every comic in the book deals with cats plotting to kill humans, but several do. But they all feature cats in some clever way. The 'Bob-cats' is a funny twist on office work. Other comics show the humor of cat behavior. If you don't have a cat or haven't had a cat, some of this will be unfamiliar - but still funny nonetheless. If you have a cat, then you can chuckle along at the totally real occurrence of the 'kitty land mine'. Seriously - the kitty land mine is very real, and almost always occurs on the stairs!
It's something that I like having on Kindle so that I can read it on my phone Kindle app if I'm having a blue moment. It never fails to both amuse and lift my spirits. We worth a couple of bucks.
At their best, Inman's comics are offbeat, manic, vulgar, and over the top, and under any circumstances, they aren't for the easily offended. On the whole, the comics collected here are quite enjoyable, if perhaps not quite up to the level of funniness Inman has generated in the past. Several comics are little more than whimsically put-together observations of cat behavior. There are a couple of classics here, though, including "How to Pet a Kitty" and "Cat VS Internet."
The book itself is high quality, with thick, glossy pages, and most of the comics are in color.
This is a decent-sized book - 130 pages - but it's an extremely quick read, as many of the pages only feature one panel each. Half the book (literally) is comprised of "The Bobcats" and "Cat VS Internet" - this latter has been stretched out to 21 pages. Obviously, Inman has to adapt his comics to the dimensions of the printed page, but caveat emptor.
Cat-loving Oatmeal fans should get plenty of mileage out of this book; fans of only one or the other may get substantially less.
