Review #254: Comic Book Guy's Book of Pop Culture- Matt Groening

Title: Comic Book Guy's Book of Pop Culture
Author: Matt Groening
Format: Hardcover
Pages: 96
Rating: 3/5 Stars
Summary: Comic Book Guy's Book of Pop Culture is an all–new book from the ongoing series: The Simpsons Library of Wisdom.

Allow the portly proprietor of 'The Android's Dungeon and Baseball Card Shop' to guide you through the ins and outs, the fast food takeouts, online dates, things he hates, Wonder Woman dreams, internet schemes, chick flicks, Kung Fu kicks, gaming freaks, fan boy geeks, comic books, condescending looks, Tolkien's Middle Earth, his own middle girth, and every other aspect of pop culture from his own expertly acerbic point of view.

Comic Book Guy's Book of Pop Culture – it's the worst, we mean . the best book ever!

In The Simpsons Library of Wisdom, Matt Groening, the creator of 'The Simpsons', offers an ongoing series of portable and quotable books that will eliminate the need for all religions and philosophies, exalt man's role in the universe and make the world a better place ... sort of. No other television show in history has commented so freely and so humorously on modern times, and there seems to be no end in sight for the sharp satire and pointed parody that 'The Simpsons' serves up every night of the week all around the world.
Review: I love the cover of this book haha. I love Comic Book Guy, but I found this book o be a little boring. I'm not sure why, but it was. I loved all of the illustrations and that we got to see into the life of Comic Book Guy. My favourite illustrations were his many T-shirts. I will be reading the rest of these fun books by Matt Groening, hopefully they are more entertaining than this one.
