Summary

Matthew Inman’s first collection of The Oatmeal.comspent six weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and sold 200,000 copies. This pivotal and influential comic collection titled 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth introduced Samurai sword-wielding kittens and informed us on how to tell if a velociraptor is having pre-marital sex. Matthew's cat-themed collection How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You is a #1 New York Times bestseller with more than half a million copies in print. Now with Why Grizzly Bears Should Wear Underpants, Inman offers a delicious, tantalizing follow-up featuring all new material that has been posted on the site since the publication of the first book plus never-before-seen comics that have not appeared anywhere.  As with every Oatmeal collection, there is a pull-out poster at the back of the book.In this second collection of over 50 comics, you'll be treated to the hilarity of "The Crap We Put Up with Getting On and Off an Airplane," "Why Captain Higgins Is My Favorite Parasitic Flatworm," "This Is How I Feel about Buying Apps," "6 Things You Really Don't Need to Take a Photo of," and much more. Along with lambasting the latest culture crazes, Inman serves up recurrent themes such as foodstuffs, holidays, e-mail, as well as technological, news-of-the-day, and his snarky yet informative comics on grammar and usage. Online and in print, The Oatmealdelivers brilliant, irreverent comic hilarity.

    Born and raised in the small prairie town of Lanigan, Saskatchewan, Jane Smith had to be the most awkward girl around. She had reached an age when her parents were allowing her to experiment with make-up, and all the boys around her were becoming more attractive as each day passed. Especially Todd. He was her biggest secret crush. Unfortunately, Jane was too shy to do anything about it. 
    It did not help matters that all her friends now had boyfriends, but Jane still did not. It seemed to her that she was forever cursed to be single in this small prairie town where she was nothing more than an ugly duckling next to all the pretty and sociable girls. 
    When Jane was not following her friends around from the movie theatre to the hockey rink, learning the latest juicy gossip from them, and silently adoring her biggest crush, she was alone in her bedroom writing: letters to her Chinese penpal, diary entries, and the beginnings of a romance novel. She often dreamed about her first love and first kiss. Alas, this was a dream she feared would never come true, so she also wished for a new start and a whole new life for herself. 
    Little did Jane know that her creative hobbies were the very thing that would make these dreams come true. Little did she know she was capable of magic!

    I was going to say that it all started with a toothache, but that’s not quite right. It really started the day before, with a decision. A stupid decision made with the sort of offhand nonchalance with which people like me make decisions about places like theirs. It was a bad decision, one that I regret to this day and one that I probably always will. On the other hand, the decision to go to Greece in the first place had been a good one. Though of course that decision wasn’t really mine. It had been the run up to exam season and as the teacher with the highest number of exam classes in the school (and as a consequence the teacher with the highest number of mock examination papers to mark) by the time the half term break came around I was absolutely exhausted. For what seemed like months I was either in the classroom teaching, planning the lessons I would be teaching the following day, or marking examination papers from one of the four exam classes, all of which had multiple papers for me to plough through.

    This strip offers a fresh outlook and appeals to everyone . . . LIO is a comic strip that's edgy, funny, visually stunning, and truly different." --Daily CartoonistWith a feature film in the works from producer David Kirschner (Child's Play, An American Tail), LIO deftly melds the macabre with its brand of dark humor.Having been distinguished by Variety as "a fast riser," Mark Tatulli's morbidly mirthful pantomime comic strip, LIO, is humorously astute and just slightly askew in its perception of the world.Centered around an odd, ghostly-pale child named LIO, and his creepy coterie of friends, including a giant squid named Ishmael and a scythe-carrying grim reaper, LIO; is influenced by cartooning greats Gahan Wilson, Charles Addams, and 19th-century satirist A. J. Volck.
