This morning over my first cup of coffee I read Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness; and then Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird. I decided to read The Three Musketeers before jumping in the shower.
This delightful book reduces most of the canon of "Western Literature" into a series of four-panel cartoons. Each of the books thus encapsulated is given one two-page spread, and each 4-panel cartoon only uses 3 to tell the story, because one panel is always the book title.
I found this collection to be very funny and well thought out. It's also weird how many of the books he actually does capture the essence of in one page.
You're in a hurry, so check this one out!
