RECOMMEND T-REX TO... THE INTERNET:
What are the haps my friends


May 26th, 2008: Kate Beaton did a great comic about your friend and mine Joey Comeau of A Softer World. And then (then!) I noticed that somehow I'd missed that she'd done my request for her History Comics Project #2, which was "but I need those baskets back". Hooray! So it was a Katy-filled morning for me and now it is for you too!


GUESS WHAT JUST CAME OUT: IT'S MY NEW BOOK!! If you've ever wondered what you'd do if you were stranded in the past, wonder no longer! With HOW TO INVENT EVERYTHING, you'll reinvent civilization from scratch, no matter what time period you're in. You'll become the single most influential, decisive, and important person ever born. You'll make history...

...better.

Here's the trailer!

One year ago today: as a bonus, 'life of crime' is included as an illustrative anecdote at the end of the book. STRAIGHT TO NUMBER ONE ON THE NEW YORK TIMES, BABY!
