    Cool to see comics origins This was such a cool way to visit all the memes that were out there. Most I was familiar with, but not the stories behind them, or the artists behind them. Artists included the one who invented the comic “it’s fine”, where the house is on fire, as well as “no take only throw” about the dog not letting the owner take the ball to throw it again. Just taking a look will remind you of all those memes, as well as those that are still drawing very funny comic strips.

    This is a collection of artwork that hails from the world of webcomics. As with any collection, there are those that strike a chord and those that fall flat.

    A funny well researched history of comics that went viral and the people who made them with some lovely cartooning

    This is an interesting idea - collect some of the most memetastic comics and then have a two-page introduction where the authors talk about how their life has been affected by their internet success. The idea is interesting, but it kind of neglects one piece - where the comics came from (although many of the intros did touch on it, not all of them did). There's also the weakness of selections - not all major memes agreed to be included, so some of the selections are honestly things I've never he This is an interesting idea - collect some of the most memetastic comics and then have a two-page introduction where the authors talk about how their life has been affected by their internet success. The idea is interesting, but it kind of neglects one piece - where the comics came from (although many of the intros did touch on it, not all of them did). There's also the weakness of selections - not all major memes agreed to be included, so some of the selections are honestly things I've never heard of (although there are several major memes included). The art varies by the author of course, while the intro pages are consistently illustrated, which adds some good connectivity. The humor varies, and many of the 'after' stories are remarkably similar. But still, the idea is innovative, even if the execution loses a bit from the similar stories. But this is fine...

    Oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo

    Decent coverage of the memes they chose to include, but they make it known that they only included those that they liked or of which they approved, while leaving out significant or interesting ones because they didn't like who made it. This undermines the prior stated purpose of the anthology: to collect notable memes and tell their stories. Would've been fine if it was instead titled along the lines of "Our Fave Webcomics." I also just didn't enjoy a lot of their selections, but know they were Decent coverage of the memes they chose to include, but they make it known that they only included those that they liked or of which they approved, while leaving out significant or interesting ones because they didn't like who made it.

I also just didn't enjoy a lot of their selections, but know they were likely constrained to people who would agree to have their work reprinted like this, which they admit was limited. However, they did pick some terrible ones that aren't by "good people" either.

    A collection of comics about the birth of viral webcomics. Some of them are about individual comics (e.g., This is Fine), and others are about full webcomic series (e.g., Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal). The art was pretty interesting, though I would have gotten more out of a lot of them if I'd been familiar with the memes beforehand. I particularly appreciated the examples of the comics in question, though it might have been helpful to have those before the story comics, to provide context.

Either way, it was a fun (and wholly apropos) way of presenting some recent webcomic history.

    Worth A Look A quick "read," I was familiar with some of these, others were ( by definition) New to me. Interesting hook; a comic about each author's creative process precedes a sample of the author's work.

    I was hoping for a lot more from this book, especially on copyright and intellectual property but it was basically just a dozen memes with a tiny bit of context as to their origins. The running punchline is that the internet will criticize your work no matter what you do, so here you go.

    Memes for ebook teens (of all ages) Enjoyed discovering and rediscovering popular webcomic memes. An interesting way to present the creator's backstory and issues they ran into later re interpretation etc.

    Loved this book! I've read most of the comics before, though there were quite a few unfamiliar ones too. Definitely enjoyed the extra original strips about the creators and their struggles/successes... would have liked to see a bit more of that!

    A nice recap showing what was behind some of the most viral webcomics. Not a masterpiece but it was a funny and enjoyable reading.

    Like any anthology this collection has some good comics and some great comics and some not as good comics. But there's certainly enough that's good to make it worth reading.

    This is a fun look at the behind-the-scenes of some of the more popular comics on the web that went viral! It gets a little weird.

    I like the comics and the meme history. The frame story was a little meh, but there are some great comics creators in here worth your time.

    Enlightening origin stories, cute comics, even a nod to some more famous viral comics that weren't directly featured.
