Scenes from a Multiverse
, the delightfully weird webcomic from John Rosenberg (creator of the transcendently bizarre Goats
, is now available in book form
. Rosenberg created Scenes
as a more accessible alternative to Goats
, whose convoluted storylines, while immensely entertaining (and mindbending) required quite a commitment to follow. By contrast, Scenes
mostly takes the form of stand-alone one-page scenes from various parallel dimensions (though there are some multi-installment stories that revisit some of the deeper weird beloved by Goats
aficionados). Rosenberg's humor blends science, high weirdness and pop culture in a mix that is not quite like any other, and I could read him all day long. See below for some of my favorite strips from the collection.
