Be warned, The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and Other Stories: A Collection of the Comic Strips of the Perry Bible Fellowship by Nicholas Gurewitch is not Candyland. It has nothing to do with Candyland. You just may end up crying if you go into this book thinking, “Oh sweet, Candyland! This is cute!”
Why would you cry? Because you’ll be laughing so hard that you will lose control over your body. Your emotions will go crazy and you will not know what to do. Yes, this book is that good.
The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and Other Stories: A Collection of the Comic Strips of the Perry Bible Fellowship is a collection of the popular web comic series by Nicholas Gurewitch. The format of each comic strip is simple: three or four panels of comic genius that will leave you with an aching gut. Gurewitch’s comedy is quick and simple. He often tackles inane subjects that when combined with his easy to access art styling create some of the most fun you’ve ever had in 5 seconds, and you’ll want more. Luckily, this book has 92 pages of goodness ahead; which will take you about 18 minutes and 40 seconds to read. Trust me. It’s worth it.
