Checkerboard Nightmare: A Brief History of Webcomics
by Kristofer Straub

This is one of those books that is supposed to be funny, and it is funny. So a review would largely consist of me retelling jokes out of context, which is not particularly funny. So the best thing I can do is to tell you that if you find metahumor, webcomics parody, and a Scott McCloud cameo possibly funny, then this is the book for you. Of course, all of strips contained within are available online for free, though the bonus commentary on the history of webcomics-- which is completely magnificent-- is not.

Oh, and let's not forget Hard Action Squad, surely the greatest cop show ever made. "Looks like Hard Action Squad is about to get a lot harder."

Read Checkerboard Nightmare.
