A New York Times Bestseller - "Walks the line between deeply poignant and laugh-out-loud funny." -Matthew Inman, creator of The Oatmeal and New York Times bestselling author

Life is weird. Embrace it. A bear flies through space. A hamster suffers a breakdown. A child marvels at the wonder of nature as worms emerge from the ground to look for vodka (as they always have). Elsewhere, a garden snake is arrested by animal control and jailed for home invasion. These are common occurrences in the world of Reza Farazmand's wildly popular webcomic, Poorly Drawn Lines. Traveling from deep space to alternate realities to the bottom of the ocean, this collection includes fan favorites alongside never-before-seen comics and original essays. For the first time, Farazmand shares his inimitable take on love, nature, social acceptance, and robots.

Review quote

"Poorly Drawn Lines consistently walks the line between deeply poignant and laugh-out-loud funny."
--Matthew Inman, creator of The Oatmeal and New York Times bestselling author of 5 Very Good Reasons to Punch a Dolphin in the Mouth "Poorly Drawn Lines is the funniest comic I've read since The Far Side."
--Wil Wheaton, actor (Star Trek: The Next Generation; The Big Bang Theory) "The Far Side meets Mad magazine, except with more swearing."
--Mother Jones

"Hilarious...Poorly Drawn Lines is an exercise in condensed humor."
--Paste Magazine "Farazmand's art style promises Sarah Boynton-greeting-card whimsy, but what he delivers is darker, weirder, funnier and completely his own."
-- Glen Weldon, author of Superman: The Unauthorized Biography
