This is one of the best "funnybooks" I've come across. I was in tears a few times, it's hilarious. Many of the ideas are surprisingly clever. It's hard to believe one person could come up with so many funny strips, but the artist mentions that a couple of his friends help with ideas. I think that makes it even more great. In any case, I hope to see more...This is a real hidden gem, wish I heard of it sooner !

This collection of Gurewitch's award winning comic, The Perry Bible Fellowship, is hilarious, absurd, dark, and somewhat demented. Highly imaginative, and wonderfully illustrated, each 3 or 4 paneled strip contains a clever and usually shocking punch line that is perfectly complimented by artwork that varies from very simple to detailed and polished. Readers with an appreciation for dark comedy will likely enjoy Gurewitch’s sharp wit and twisted sense of humour.
