Hey Kids! Comics! Book Love

Seems Dennis is right:

I love books.

The problem is that my book-buying habit outpaces my ability to read them. This leads to FOMO and occasional pangs of guilt over the unread volumes spilling across my shelves. Sound familiar?

But it’s possible this guilt is entirely misplaced. According to statistician Nassim Nicholas Taleb, these unread volumes represent what he calls an “antilibrary,” and he believes our antilibraries aren’t signs of intellectual failings. Quite the opposite.

You can never have too many books.


Below are some comic strip and cartoon books scheduled for February 2020 release.
Images and links (mostly) via Amazon,
though ordering through your local comic or independent book store is a good idea.
