The world can always use a laugh. But today, the world could really use these laughs in this collection of comic strips and panel cartoons. Love and Other Weird Things is a cartoon collection by soon-to-be-household-name-if-there's-any-justice-in-this-world Rich Sparks. The cast of characters seem innocuous enough: foul-mouthed animals, Paul Bunyan, eccentric women, men in their skivvies. But the situations give Monty Python a run for their money. And the juxtapositions—good heavens! Sparks has been published in the New Yorker, the Wall Street Journal, American Bystander, Weekly Humorist, and many other publications. Now he breaks out on his own with approximately 150 bizarre but sweet (seriously? Somebody needs to check the definition of sweet.) but also really funny cartoons.
