Quote:Maybe some day, when I have more money to spend on comics that I don't already do, I'll check the series out. What is the full premise? I only remember the shown comic covers.
Book One is a funny-animal parody of Conan. Book Two satirises politics. Books Three and Four satirise politics and religion.
Book Five is about relationships and longing. Book Six is about the death of Oscar Wilde.
Books Seven thru Ten sort of wrap everything up as Sim starts to go off the deep end, and from Book Eleven onwards ... it's sort of difficult to describe.
I would absolutely recommend the series, but based on your interests, you could stop with Book Four, Six. or Ten. Not many have the intestinal fortitude to go much farther than that.
