Save yourself, mammal!

I've been meaning to write a review of Zach Weiner's webcomic collection Save Yourself, Mammal! ever since I got it a couple of weeks ago, but seriously, if you're a fan of Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal then just go and buy the book, OK?

And if you're not, buy one anyway. His comics are really funny. Bonus: it includes a snarky "choose your own adventure" series of tiny cartoons.

And hey - I'm saying all this even though there is not a single, solitary instance in the book of his using one of his cartoons featuring a beloved red-bearded balding astronomer. Not one. And yet, somehow, the comics manage to be awesome.

Full disclosure: I was going to give this book a positive review even before Zach offered to draw my new Twitter avatar, which is me as a baby, because the way he draws babies always makes me laugh. The shirt he gave me in the picture though was totally a bribe.

Have you bought the book yet? C'mon, folks. This post isn't going to pander itself.
