You’ve probably seen Reza Farazmand’s Poorly Drawn Lines comics online while scrolling through social media. His absurdist humor and world observations are coming now back to book form in the new collection Comics for a Strange World. In this world, bears and ducks have moments of existential crisis. My particular favorite series has to do with forcing a pet cat to get a job or move out of the house in tough times. Yeah, it’s that kind of absurd. There’s another that involves the “live fast, die young” lives of kitchen appliances.
Comics for a Strange World features some of the most popular comics from Poorly Drawn Lines over the past year, as well as 50% new content. Even if you’ve read every comic on the Poorly Drawn Lines website, you will find something new in this collection.
Comics for a Strange World is available October 24, 2017 from Plume Books.
