"Parenting is a competitive sport these days. With all the pressure on the modern parent, a little comic relief is not just welcome; it's a matter of survival. Because I'm the Child Here and I Said So offers a much-needed hilarious first-aid kit for parents of all types. Between the fat stacks of parenting books designed to engender paranoia and hyper-competitiveness, and the culture that demands everyone must "have it all," today's parents don't stand a chance. Because I'm the Child Here and I Said So by cartoonist Pat Byrnes is a gleeful send-up of modern parenting: the obsession, the sport, the pseudo science, and all the maddening challenges parenting presents. Each full-color cartoon features a smart punch line that will make you smile (or wince in recognition): * "A birthday party? Didn't we already do that kind of crap with your older sister?" * "I couldn't find a sitter, so I got a video." * "Just remember, son, it doesn't matter whether you win or lose-unless you want Daddy's love." Be advised, if you find yourself relating to any of the parents in this book, you need to chill out. Fortunately, Because I'm the Child Here and I Said So is the antidote to all your parenting woes. Whether you keep it for your own sanity or give it to a desperate parent, the cartoons of Pat Byrnes will delight and amuse."

Everyone knows the only thing more painful than relationships is not having them--or is it the other way around? Whatever, says author and cartoonist Nick Galifianakis. In his first book, If You Loved Me, You'd Think This Was Cute: Uncomfortably True Cartoons About You, he makes the case that either way, the only recourse is to embrace our frailties and laugh. Taken from Carolyn Hax's nationally syndicated advice column, this compilation spins the pain of dating, mothers-in-law, "beneficial" friends and more into ... the pain of self-recognition. The intricately drawn pen-and-ink panels and pointed captions explore some of life's most uncomfortable truths, exposing the humanity in our mistakes, the underbelly of our triumphs and the sheer heroism of trying and trying again. Throughout this character study of men and women (and the dogs who love them), Galifianakis mines our hopes and insecurities for a unifying truth: If we can't laugh at ourselves, he'll do it for us. "Nick snuck me into my first comedy club when I was only a back-acned teenager. The back acne went away but the comedy stuck. I know that last sentence sounds like a lyric from a Joan Baez song, but trust me, it's original." --Zach Galifianakis, from the foreword "Nick's cartoons are funny, witty, and smart. But what makes them so special are how universal and true they are, making the laughs they bring all the more poignant. Relationships, in all their glory, have never been captured quite so succinctly and with such charm." --Amy B. Harris, writer/producer for Sex and the City "Nick Galifianakis understands relationships unbelievably well, for a guy. My guess is he actually menstruates." --Gene Weingarten, two-time Pulitzer Prize winner, Washington Post humor columnist

It’s all in the job description–or is it? It’s never just another day at the office in John Lustig’s Last Kiss comics series, a vintage-with-a-twist collection of 1950s and 60s art reimagined with Lustig’s cheeky modern dialogue. Last Kiss takes doctors, nurses, lawyers, stay-at-home moms, and flight attendants, aims at controlling bosses, sexual harassment, bad tippers, and, of course, overindulging on the clock, and lets fly. This e-book original collection invites you to enjoy the inanity of working life and have a few laughs along the way.

What do you get when you mix 1950s style with a twentieth-century sensibility? No, not Mad Men. Even better: John Lustig's Last Kiss. Lustig has rewritten the classic 50s- and 60s-era comic strip First Kiss into a hilariously silly commentary on life, love, and the pursuit of great sex. In this e-book original collection, he tackles that touchiest of themes (then or now)-sexual politics—in outrageously entertaining and deliciously saucy colorized comics.

The holidays are always fun—if you discount nosy relatives, stressful family gatherings, and the inevitable question “Were you naughty or nice this year?” Well, most people would say they were nice, but John Lustig’s Last Kiss shines a light on the absurdity of such a question. Using art from the classic 50s- and 60s-era comic strip First Kiss, Lustig adds his own witty observations on the futility of family functions, and the hilarity that comes along with the holiday seasons in his new e-book original collection. Of course, it wouldn’t be the end of the world, as we know it, without a few zombies thrown in for good measure.

"Meet Man: He’s witty, carefree, and probably not sober. He's Dean Martin meets Jack Benny, Don Draper, and Jack Donaghy. He imparts upon readers his clever, unabashed musings of romance, party culture, and bachelorhood. The life of the party, the collected contemplations in Man v. Liver will amuse and inform aspiring connoisseurs of class. In Man v. Liver, Man expels his alcohol-fueled wisdom to all who yearn to encapsulate themselves in a life of forgotten nights and fine tailored suits–which, as he will tell you, are handy to sleep in if you wish to be the best dressed at breakfast. Man v. Liver is a collection of witty musings accompanied by their creator: a roughly sketched, style-conscious bachelor who’s never short on quips aimed at fellow party guests, dates, and, of course, his beloved liver."

My cartoons are my best appraisal of a situation presented in the funniest or most compelling way I can. Read my cartoons. What I have to say is in them. It's been a decade since political cartoonist Tom Toles collected his panels in book form. He's had a busy decade and plenty of time to further sharpen both his wit, commentary, and pen. NOW Who Do We Blame? presents an editorial master at the top of his game, in all of his whimsical, sometimes scathing, and always insightful glory. Toles, editorial cartoonist for the Washington Post, includes his favorite frames from the past. His subjects include the 9/11 Commission, the 2004 presidential election, terrorism, the Middle East conflict, Yasser Arafat, Afghanistan, Iraq, and of course George W. Bush. The collection title, in fact, comes from a panel showing Bush at his desk, covered with miniatures of the GOP White House, GOP Senate, GOP House, and GOP Supreme Court. Now who do we blame? asks the puzzled Commander in Chief. Such is the humor, satire, and intelligence of one of the most accomplished and widely read political cartoonists working today. Toles, who draws himself as the artist working in the lower right corner of his panels, takes on every issue and every powerbroker that crosses the national screen.
