THE DEVASTATOR FUNNY BOOK BUNDLE

Curated by The Devastator

The Devastator Funny Book Bundle is back, it's stacked and it's on the attack. (OK, it's not attacking anything. We just got carried away with rhyming.)

As the publishers of Devastator Press, the only all-humor publisher in America, we go to over 15 pop culture conventions a year. Most people gasp when we tell them this. "How could you do that to yourselves?" they wonder, when we tell them about improvised pretzel-nacho-mustard packet sandwiches and the company car giving up on life in the middle of the desert.

We have a couple reasons for doing so many shows. (1) It's satisfying when fans come to our booth to praise and guffaw at our new books, like The Devastator: Otaku, a collection of anime parodies mocking Sailor Moon, Inuyasha and Death Note; and Grosslumps: Tales to Irritate Your Spook Glands, our bestselling short story collection mutilating Goosebumps. (2) Fan praise powers our gigantic, world destroying robot! (3) We get to hang out with many of the amazing authors of funny books whose work we've collected into this bundle…

Ryan North - He's the smartest guy on the con floor. You have to be to put together a 700+ page chose your own adventure Shakespeare satire like To Be or Not To Be.

Liz Prince - Her comics about relationships, like Will You Still Love Me If I Wet The Bed?, are sweet, honest and uproariously funny. That's what she's like in real life, too.

Yehudi Mercado - He works so hard, yet he makes comics that read so fast you would think they're effortless, like Buffalo Speedway, an epic tale of pizza boys becoming pizza men.

The Toonhole Crew - These guys are super friendly, a wonderfully sharp contrast from their sick, twisted comics collections like Between a Rock and a Socially Awkward Place.

KC Green - He's one chill dude, and his hilarious comics, like the new collection of Gunshow webcomics All Of Our Friends Are Dead, are totally ill. Chill 'n' ill.

Joe Lo Truglio, David Wain, Michael Showalter - We're psyched to present a rare play by these Legends of Sketch Comedy entitled Sex AKA Weiners and Boobs. Though we only recently met Joe Lo Truglio to shoot a piece for The Devastator: Otaku, he's so charming and fun to be around it felt as if we'd been through years of kooky convention road trip hijinx.

So there you have it. Collected in our latest bundle of insanely funny books are works by some of the most talented and awesome folks we know. You get to name your own price for these books, but for us, the experience of working with these guys is priceless. – The Devastator
