    “It has become cliché to say I laughed until I cried, but when I’m done reading one of these underground comics my shirt is literally soaking wet. This guy may have one of the best comedy brains on the planet right now.” – Conan O’Brien on Thrizzle, Entertainment Weekly “Must List”

    Kupperman is about as good as it gets. I was lucky enough to get into his stuff early on by randomly picking up the absolutely phenomenal Snake’n’Bacon’s Cartoon Cabaret around 2000 and being blown away.

    He just recently did a great story in Marvel’s “All-Select Comics” 70th anniversary issue, and his twitter account, @mkupperman is universally hilarious. This dude has my guaranteed financial support for anything he works on, ever.

    a video game called Big City Marathon (“Keep your finger on the forward arrow key for 26 hours to win”)

    Penn & Teller’s Smoke and Mirrors had a minigame, “Desert Bus”, that worked like this. You’re driving a bus from Tuscon to Vegas, in real time, on a road with no features, with a steering wheel that drifts to the right. You have to spend eight hours just sitting there, making slight adjustments to the bus’s path, and it can’t be paused.

    I just picked up the book at Comic-Con as well… nearly caused me heart failure! “Bambiffpow Johnson – there’s a fistfight in my name!”. Strongly recommended!
