    Wiley Miller’s e-book original The Non Sequitur Guide to "The System" skewers the ridiculousness of courtroom procedure, the deep-seated flaws of law and order, and the pomposity of bureaucrats. No one is safe as this objection to nonsensical judicial practice calls out every judge, jury, and executioner.Non Sequitur is Wiley Miller's wry look at the absurdities of  modern life. A hit with millions of fans, the strip is syndicated in  more than 700 newspapers. Non Sequitur has won four National  Cartoonists Society divisional awards, the most prestigious prize in  cartooning. It is the only comic strip to win the coveted award in its  first year of syndication and the only one to ever win in both the best  comic strip and best comic panel categories.
