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.

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.

So it is with the Damasukasu Japanese 3-Piece Master Chef Hanshu Knife Set. Sitting in […]
