The hilarious, surreal webcomic Perry Bible Fellowship has just been collected in a book from Dark Horse called The Perry Bible Fellowship: The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and Other Stories that sounds excellent. What's more, 10 Zen Monkeys reports that the book is selling extremely well, going for a third printing, having done "$300,000 worth of pre-orders" -- I make that out to be an extremely respectable 30,000 hardcovers or so.
LC: What was in the books you drew as a kid?
NG: The same stuff I'm doing now, I'm pretty sure. Lots of monsters, lots of robots, lots of dinosaurs...
I don't think I've always wanted to be a cartoonist. I've always just been a cartoonist. I've always just been making little stories.
LC: Colonel Sweeto shows a magical candy land where the reigning monarch practices some vicious realpolitik. When I contacted you, I almost wondered if you lived in a far-away fantasy castle of your own.
NG: I wonder if most people have that impression. I love castles. I plan to live in one some day. It's not wrong that you have that impression.
I wish it were true.

If your office works at all, it uses Microsoft Office. Those icons for Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook are as familiar around some workplaces as the coffee machine. So familiar, in fact, that they get taken for granted – and rarely used to their full potential. Whether you need a crash course in the essential tools […]
It’s a great time to be a maker. 3D printers are on store shelves for anyone to buy, and coder kits like Arduino and Raspberry Pi are letting kids as young as 9 or 10 dive into the Internet of Things. Here are a few examples of our favorite tech toys, all priced low enough […]
