The Cowboy Wally Show
Kyle Baker is a very sick person, and it's obvious the only way he can remain in polite society is by getting his sick ideas down on paper. Fortunately for us, he's also a comic genius with an excellent sense of both absurdity and drama. Here Wally, a beer-swilling, cigar-smoking lunk with a knack for being easily manipulated, leaves behind kiddie shows and westerns to become a talk-show host of some repute (mostly ill). If you want "witty, intelligent, socially redeeming contemporary fiction... with pictures," read Why I Hate Saturn. If you just want to laugh out loud, read this book.
