The graphic novel adoration continues.
I just read the first volume of Strangers in Paradise. It’s really very good and you should get it. Or borrow mine.
Warning: extremely geeky sidenote follows.
How I came by this book is a little example of Long Tail economics at work.
A friend I know from years back now lives in Denmark. She found this blog via a link from my MySpace page. Reading my posting about graphic novels, she made a recommendation and I bought the book from Amazon – there’s no way it would be in my local Waterstone’s. Now I’m blogging about it and maybe someone I know will read the book too because they (maybe) trust my opinion.
Let’s face it, how else would someone who doesn’t resemble The Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons ever end up coming across something like this?
