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.
