    1st printing. Collects Tales Designed to Thrizzle (2005) #1-5. The critics agree! Tales Designed To Thrizzle is the smash hit humor comic book of the decade. And now the first four issues of Michael Kupperman's legendary comic book are finally collected into one deluxe hardcover. Even better, Kupperman has taken the original two-color printing and made the entire book full color! Heidi MacDonald of Publisher's Weekly The Beat says "Folks, this is the funniest thing since Monty Python. I mean it." Tom Spurgeon of The Comics Reporter says, "Really funny... Buy five and leave them in the backseat of your car." The stories in Tales Designed to Thrizzle will make their debut in 2009 on the Cartoon Network's Adult Swim program as Snake 'N' Bacon, which is certain to catapult Thrizzle to new heights of popularity. The show, a mix of live-action, puppetry and animation, stars David Rakoff (This American Life), Bill Hader (Saturday Night Live), Kristen Schaal (Flight of the Conchords), James Urbaniak (The Venture Brothers), and Dan Bakkedahl (The Daily Show), and is produced by Kupperman, Robert Smigel (Triumph The Insult Comic Dog), Scott Jacobson (The Daily Show) and Rich Bloomquist (The Daily Show). Kupperman's cartooning regularly graces the pages of The Believer and The New Yorker, amongst many other publications. This first-ever collection of Kupperman's wildly popular comic book, on the heels of Adult Swim's animated adaptation, is a must-have for any graphic novel or humor collection. What are tales designed to thrizzle? Tales designed to thrizzle are about evil girls and their owls. They are about Jesus' half-brother Pagus, the Mysterious Avenger, Dick Crazy, scary snakes, delicious bacon, Private Eye Johnny Silhouette, the Silver Knight, Murder She Didn't Write, the Mannister, the Space Patrol, portraits where the eyes move, Pablo Picasso, sex blimps (and their logical inverse, sex holes), the hot boy band Boybank, soccer joust, Underpants-On-His-Head Man, Hercules the Public Domain Superhero, Cousin Granpa, Mister Bossman, Mark Twain, the silent robot Citobor and, of course, the Thirties. Hardcover, full color. Cover price $24.99.
