This was truly a unique idea and amazingly done. I loved every part of this graphic novel and would suggest creative thinkers give this a go and would get a lot more out of this!

This is a collection of cartoons by Grant Snider, which you can see on his website at Incedental Comics. If you like the sort of humor he exhibits there, then this is definetly a good collection to pick up and have in one place.
I found, however, never having read him before, that it seemed a litt...
