Outta the blue last night, I got the nicest e-mail from my old college English professor, with praise for the "Literature
" book. Apparently, she tracked me down just to let me know the book cracked her up. And lemme tell you: What an awesome endorsement that is. If the book can crack up a double-doctorate on Emily Dickinson and Herman Melville then THIS IS A BOOK THAT HAS DONE ITS JOB, MY FRIENDS.
Not familiar with the book? It's the collection that brings together all the literary comics from "Sheldon" into one volume: Literature: Unsuccessfully Competing Against TV Since 1953. It takes on all the greats of Western Lit: From Seuss to Shakespeare, Twain to Tolkien. And if you're a lover of books, and haven't tried this one out...now you have the personal endorsement of my third-year English Lit professor to give it a try. :)

Edited to add: Hey, neat! ...the book just got nominated for an Eisner Award, too. GUESS WHO'S TREATIN' HIMSELF TO SOME TWO-SCOOP ICE CREAM?
