Summary

From a simple, brilliant premise—to create comics from the weirdest and funniest tweets around—artist Mike Rosenthal (@VectorBelly) has crafted a hilariously surreal world that has attracted over a million followers to his blog Twitter: The Comic. Each carefully curated tweet delivers concentrated humor in the language of the Internet, reproduced in the comics with typos and all. As envisioned by Rosenthal, each comes to life through a bizarrely recognizable cast of bassoon-playing cops, sarcastic teens, bear MDs, clueless dads, potential insect overlords, and more. Featuring more than 120 of these comics, including dozens unique to this book, Twitter: The Comic (The Book) is a dementedly funny vision of our strange online age.

Lily is the quintessential slightly older and far more sensible sister. She takes it upon herself to look after her uninhibited, prank-loving younger brother, Bud. While Lily wins the occasional battle with her cool-headed maturity, Bud is intent on winning the war with his brazen brand of mischief. Despite their obvious differences, Bud and Lily love each other deeply and have a strong sibling bond.

    These are the continuing adventures of Barack Obama and Joe Biden, time traveling superheroes on an epic journey to turn the tide of history, bromancing spacetime together in search of a brighter future for America.Desperate times call for desperate measures.Moments after the inauguration of our 45th president, best friends Barack Obama and Joe Biden were escorted to a secret lab run by the world’s greatest scientists. They were asked to take off all their clothes and hold very still in a fetal position until they felt a painful tingling sensation. Then they vanished. They would awake to find themselves apart, and inside their younger bodies and driven to find each other, and to change history for the better. Their only guide on this journey is Neil deGrasse Tyson, a scientist from the present who appears in the form of an augmented reality that only they can see and hear. And thus they find themselves leaping throughout their own lifetime, looking for the best in people...striving to right injustice wherever they find it, forever hoping that their next jump in time will take them to a future that’s not scary and broken on a quest for a world which they can proudly call…home.The brainchild of director Adam Reid, born out of his deep frustration after the 2016 election and launched via Kickstarter, The Adventures of Barry & Joe is a nostalgia hued science fiction tale celebrating the greatest bromance in modern history, that of President Barack Obama and Vice President Joe Biden.A visual feast that’s part comic book and all heart, this book is a love letter to brilliantly cheesy sci-fi and the two men who can still be counted on to inspire us. It’s unhinged political fan fiction filled with hope and a dose of healing and perspective for all of us watching in horror as Trump leads our country down it’s darkest timeline.

    Why must we believe that God is dead? Can we accept that traditional morality is just a 'useful mistake'? Did the principle of 'the will to power' lead to the Holocaust? What are the limitations of scientific knowledge? Is human evolution complete or only beginning? It is difficult to overestimate the importance of Friedrich Nietzsche for our present epoch. His extraordinary insights into human psychology, morality, religion and power seem quite clairvoyant today: existentialism, psychoanalysis, semiotics and postmodernism are plainly anticipated in his writings - which are famously enigmatic and often contradictory."Introducing Nietzsche" is the perfect guide to this exhilarating and oft-misunderstood philosopher.
