Free Best Sinfest, Vol. 1 –

Tatsuya Ishida s daily strip has become one of the world s most read and longest running webcomics Drawing on wide ranging influences most notably Bill Watterson s remarkable Calvin and Hobbes Sinfest xplores religion, advertising, sex, and politics in a way fleen calls both brutally funny and devastatingly on target In an era when most newspaper strips have become watered down and uninspired, Sinfest comes as a breath of fresh air This volume collects nearly six hundred Sinfest strips including the first installments of Ninja Theatre, beat poetry, calligraphy lessons, and the irresistible Pooch Percival strips with an introduction by Dirk Deppey of the Comics Journal and a peak at Sinfest s college newspaper origins No matter how many times I ve read or re read these strips, they still make me burst out laughing I follow the new strips online, but it can t be compared to holding the actual, physical volume in my hands Sinfest is rude, crude, and definitely full of tude but it is also extremely witty, fresh, and outright funny return return Anyone who s read the strips online has no reason not to have these giggles at their fingertips I m a big fan of Sinfest Ishida s art is fantastic, and the comics are usually spot on Most will at least put a smile on your face, but only a few are laugh out loud funny It was fun to go through and read all these older strips again. Found this title on a blog called Flashlight Worthy in their Best Graphic Novels of 2009 list It s a completely un politically correct comic strip Very funny if you re not easily offended Definitely adult material.
