The Shortkut: A Tail of the Porkus

Written by: Rick Sardinha

First line: Idle apples are the Devil's workshop.

Why you should read this book: This mostly silent comic offers a colorful and spot-on tribute to George Herriman and his groundbreaking Krazy Kat comics while creating an entirely new world built over the familiar, insane structure of Kokonino Kounty. Sardinha's modern hero must drive a truckload of melons through flying-pig-infested territory or risk not getting paid for the job. It's hilarious.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You can't seen the sublime in the ridiculous.
