We’d like to apologize for the confusing headline, which seems to suggest that you might read The 37 Cartoons You Should Read Before You Die, the astounding cartoon collection by Norman Dog, before you die again – that is, after some previous death. This is of course impossible. What we mean, of course, is that you should read it again, before you die. I apologize for any confusion.
And if you’ve never read “The 37 Cartoons,” (and have an iPad) this is your chance to read them again for the very first time! This cartoon classic (now with a new cover) has been reformatted, remixed and optimized for the iBooks format.

A peculiar comedy by Dave DeLuca and Wes Jenkins. Set in the heart of the Brutish Empire and the uncivil belly of Merika of the 1860’s, this is a bumpy tale of a twisted aristocrat, who is conducting sovereign-sanctioned ergot experiments on his entourage, who in turn are controlled by dark and fatuous forces. Dickens meets Jules Verne in Dada soaked Victoriana.

This exclusive eBook edition has been lovingly hand-crafted, using only the finest authentic Victorian-era pixels. Profusely illustrated and professionally punctuated, it will delight and astonish even the most jaded thrill seekers!

Praise for “Dorkus”:
“It’s quite risible. Bulldada of the highest – and lowest – variety. SubGenius from a parallel world of the absurd.”
Rev. IVAN STANG from the Church of the Subgenius

“Where do you find the time to do this? I don’t have the time. Where did you get the time?”
Wes’ next door neighbor

“I like the pictures and if I never read a book again, this would be on the top of my list.”
James H., Former professor at an Ivy League University that would rather not have their names mentioned in regards to a book called Dorkus

My name is Norman Dog, and my new book “I Made Millions Selling Ebooks (About How I Made Millions Selling Ebooks) And So Can YOU!” reveals the secrets of how you can make millions selling ebooks about selling ebooks, like me!

For centuries, publishing has been controlled by a shadowy unelected Wordocracy, who with their “literacy”, “standards” and “dictionaries” have locked out “Average Joes” like you and me from the life of wealth, power and adulation enjoyed by published authors. But now digital technology makes it possible for anyone to get rich publishing their very own ebooks! Why not join us!

Even if you’ve never published a book before – even if you’ve never read a book – you can learn the Secrets Of Publishing that the fat cats of “Big Book” don’t want you to know! Secrets like:

How to find plenty of ready-to-publish words (or as we pros call it, “content) on the internet – free! Let Wikipedia write your ebook for you!

How to use “Anti-Social Media” to monetize your relationships, and turn ‘friendship’ into hard cash!

Why Ben Franklin is the only self-publisher to be pictured on American money!

And much much more!

Bad Habits 29th Anniversary Edition

29 years ago, more or less, a collection of cartoons from the weekly feature Bad Habits was published, to the world’s general indifference. Now you can enjoy it all over again, for the very first time! Relive those halcyon days of yesteryear, the ’80s!

At the peak of its renown, Bad Habits appeared in a handful of weeklies, including the Chicago Reader, San Diego City Paper, Washington City Paper, Baltimore City Paper, Phoenix New Times, The Stranger, as well as the East Bay Express and many other weeklies. Spin Magazine reprinted them for a year or so, a few appeared in RAW,and handful of strips were printed in Weirdo. If any of that made sense, this is the book for you!

Featuring such hallmarks of “New Wave” cartooning as:

  • “Ironic” art style
  • “Snarky” attitude
  • No set format or characters, just a personal “take” on life
  • Published in “Alternative” weeklies
  • Brutal over-use of “scare quotes”

(Read full introduction here!)

Specially formatted to enhance the eBook reading experience!
