Reza Farazmand

October 24 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

In the follow-up to the New York Times bestselling Poorly Drawn Lines, beloved webcomic artist Reza Farazmand returns with a new collection of comics that hilariously skewers our modern age. Comics for a Strange World takes readers through time, space, and alternate realities, reuniting fans with favorite characters and presenting even more ridiculous scenarios. A squirrel adapts to human society by purchasing a cell phone—and a gun. And an old man shares memories of the Internet with his granddaughter: “A vast network of millions of idiots. Together, the idiots created endless shitty ideas. It was a true renaissance of shit.” In the world of Poorly Drawn Lines, nothing is too weird or too outlandish for parody.

Featuring 50 percent brand-new content alongside some of the most popular comics of the past year, Comics for a Strange World will be the perfect gift for your most sardonic friend or family member.

Reza Farazmand lives and draws in San Francisco. He started putting his comics on the Internet in college at pdlcomics.tumblr.com, and was soon surprised to learn that this activity could make for an actual career. His work has since been featured in and around such places as television sets, websites, magazines, and now this book. When he’s not writing or drawing, Reza enjoys drinking coffee and looking at things on screens. He is generally a pretty good guy.
