Throw her heart
This book is a just a page turn and a smile in every aspect of production. It's unique and even the most die hard fan will learn something or appreciate the way its presented in this context. I was sad there wasn't more pages to read. But I can always read it again and have a second round of belly laugh's :) Good Buy and the money goes to charity if you buy the full priced version, great idea and well executed !

Lots of fun tidbits and artwork! How does he find all this stuff?

You learn a wealth of information in Craig Yoe's delightfully entertaining Weird But True Toon Factoids!, a collection of little bits of data that add up to a crash course in comics history. You won't find in-depth articles, but you'll learn things like how Bob Kane was inspired to create the nefarious Batman villain The Penguin when he saw a smoking penguin in an ad for Kool cigarettes, or how Jim Morrison (of The Doors) was a big R. Crumb fan.

As you can tell by the title alone, Yoe is a big fan of the exclamation point (he also created YOE! Studios), and that kind of breathless excitement permeates every page of the book. The information presented is random, and it covers an incredibly broad scope of comics history, including comic strips, TV and movies and popular culture, comic books, cartoons, and more. Yoe is a comics historian himself, so he knows of what he writes, and he's clearly having a good time here. The content is sometimes a little off-color, but there's nothing that inappropriate for teens. Most of it is just tongue-in-cheek jokes that sometimes ring a little blue. But the real draw, of course, is the collection of factoids--endlessly fascinating and/or chuckle-inducing, like how Charles Schulz hated the name "Peanuts" and how Yvonne Craig's Batgirl costume had to be altered to fit her ample figure.

Weird but true is a great book, and yeah it is very cheap although I had to pay more I got it in a book store. This books gives you many cool pictures and facts that you don't know about cartoons. They give you quickies, there are no full articles in this book, just quick facts maybe a sentence or two. Heres one, did you know KISS had blood take from them to mix into their comic book? Heres an amazing fact I liked, fulfilling marvel comics write Mark Gruenwald's dying wish, the ashes of his cremated corpse were mixed into the ink used to print the Squadron Supreme comic book ! Talk about ghost writers! This is a cool book and fun to read for an hour. But there are no colored pictures in this book, everything is black and white, I wouldn't suggest giving this to a kid either it's not suitable for a child!

...except that you may never get them to leave the bathroom! I can think of no higher praise. I only wish this book were ten times as thick, or that there had been a dozen follow up sequels in the 23 years since it was published. I definitely get the feeling that these factoids were originally published in a magazine or somewhere else, but I have no idea where.

I loved this book and if you're any sort of a cartoon fan, so will you. It's one of the few books on animated cartoons and comics that I've seen that actually evokes the fun of the artform. Lots of great drawings (many unpublished and rare) and lots of totally useless cartoon trivia to amuse your friends. Plus, it's just so darn cheap. This book is hard to find in stores but I hope it's successful so we can see the second planned edition come to life.

I've never seen such a thorough search of background information about cartoons and comix! This thoughtful and obviously painstaking task of compiling such detail is mindboggling. If you love toons, you can't miss this book! If you WANT to love toons, you should read this book! You won't be able to put it down. This collection of fun and weird factoids is a literary bag of potato chips.
