Full title: Your Whole Family is Made Out of Meat: The Best of Dinosaur Comics, 2003-2005 A.D.
I read it: April 2008
Although this book is advertised as a mere “best of” collection over the course of three years, it’s still packed with over 200 comics. And although the dinosaurs are in color on the website, this text-heavy comic loses little in its printed black and white format. And although it really is the same artwork time after time, the lines are so great that each strip stands on its own. T-rex will have you laughing out loud, and the author’s added comments at the bottom of each page usually enhance the comedy. A great comic for the naively presumptuous and socially conscious, check it out for yourself.
