Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hot on the heels of his acclaimed Mark Twain’s Autobiography: 1910-2010 comes Michael Kupperman’s second all-comics collection of surreal slapstick and crazy non sequitur goofiness, all from the pages of his beloved comic book series Tales Designed to Thrizzle. In the spirit of two-ness, Tales Designed to Thrizzle Book Two features two of Kupperman’s recurring duos: America’s favorite mustachioed physicist/writer double team of Twain and Einstein (solving new crimes and barreling through exciting new adventures), and the crime-fighting team of Snake and Bacon (“Sssssssssssss!”) who make a special return just to star in Reservoir Dogs 2. Elsewhere in this volume the crusty Quincy, M.E. makes his comic book debut, struggling through the fantastic landscapes of his own dreams in “Quinception” (in which St. Peter also gets his own comic book). Also: The Jungle Princess battles rhino traders... A story of Broadway theatrics in “All About Drainage”... Slightly cursed merchandise... Cockney grave robbers... Cowboy Oscar Wilde... McArf the Crime Dog takes a bite out of scum... The origin of The Hamanimal... Plus a photocomic starring comedian Julie Klausner: “Voyage To Narnia.”

Review:

"'Some say the bathtub was invented in hell by the Devil himself! Others believe that it represents a subconscious desire of man to submerge himself in his own excrement.' Welcome to 'Scary Bathtub Stories' just one of the multiple worlds within this sidesplitting second collection of Kupperman's droll and imaginative satirical comics. While perhaps a teeny bit less revelatory than the first volume, there's plenty of fun, as with 'Saint Peter Comics' — he teams up with Quincy, M.E. — or the ongoing adventures of Mark Twain and Albert Einstein, drawn to look nearly identical, who venture into space only to have to fight pesky ghosts in their spaceship. Meet Jungle Princess, who must rescue her fashion magazine Big City Fashion from the wiles of Tigerboss before succumbing to the Senior Citizen, who fills its pages with unhip ads for insurance. Kupperman deploys a stunning arsenal of art styles to bring home the laughs, from stilted woodcut art to a kind of Tintin lite. It's a good thing this is a sturdy hardcover — it's made to stand up to the spasms of laughter that will overcome readers again and again. Kupperman is pretty much his own genre of humor now."
