Book Description

Jan. 4 2011 Sinfest
Sinfest is BACK, and better than ever! Viva la Resistance features over a year and a half of never-before-collected strips from the webcomic phenomenon that's "head-and-shoulders above the rest [… and] superior to most print comic strips, too," (R.C. Harvey). What other series has had the chutzpah to make characters out of God, the Devil, Jesus, Buddha, Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, and corrupt Wall Street CEOs? As the Onion's A.V. Club remarked, Tatsuya Ishida's Sinfest is "irreverent and playful… [crossing] lines that few cartoonists would dare toe."

Widely acclaimed for both style and content, Sinfest is a frequent entry in critics' "Best Comics of the Year" lists (Comics Journal, MTV, Comics Reporter, Comics Worth Reading) and just hit its tenth year of serialization. Don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Way. Too. Funny! June 16 2004
Format:Paperback
I stumbled onto Sinfest at the Keenspot site while browsing the offerings there, and immediately had to go back and read from the first strip. Sinfest is a guilty pleasure; you know it's naughty, but you can't help it.
I like that Mr. Ishida gives God equal billing, and the characters interact with God (and the Devil) in a way that I think a lot of people do--asking frank questions, trying to understand the way things go in life.
The art style is crisp and the subject matter is wickedly sharp--not to mention very, very funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars The best unsyndicated comic strip April 14 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Sinfest is quite frankly, THE best unsyndicated comic strip out there. As another reviewer said, it's risque nature-while making it frank and funnier-works against it when it comes to getting syndication. But the quality of the comic strip is superb, surpassing a good deal of the syndicated strips.
Ishida's huge back-archive of comics is also delightful as it allows newcomers access to so many good comics. So buy this book and support this strip's continuation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ishida ROCKS Jan. 19 2004
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
Webcomics are the emerging free media of the new mellinium. freedom from synication allows them to be as off color, off beat, and cover all kinds of touchy subjects. he provides interesting philosophical commentary on our society, and his humor is consistantly fresh and funny. his style is unique, and this is definatly a comic for those who grew up reading Calvin&Hobbes. To quote another webcomic artist "[sinfest is] to sharp for the syndicates as a double-edged carbon steel Katana is to sharp for baby's crib"

Format:Paperback
Those of us who have been following the online version of Sinfest for a long time can attest how damn good this comic is. It's daring. It's controversial. It's about good and evil and everything that follows. It doesn't pretend to be PG or PC in any way. It's definitely not a strip you could see on your newspaper anytime soon, and that's why it is great.
Tatsuya Ishida's masterful, pulse-perfect drawing style remininsces of anime, Calvin and Hobbes and Family Circus all rolled into one. Even if you're not an anime fan, it is hard not to like the strip. Together with their incendiary, heat-turning plots and edgy characters, this is the comic for anyone who, despite having to live in "the system", still keeps the soul of a rebel alive in the inside.

3.0 out of 5 stars disappointment Feb. 25 2003
Format:Paperback
I really like the comics, but as I had already read all his online comics 2 times(from the very beginning up to now) I wasn't going to read the comics again. I bought this book to support him and to read some background for the comic. Boy was I wrong. There is NO text in the book. and it looks like it was made in a few minutes.
If you want to read a great comic for the first time, buy this book, if you have already read it online, don't expect anything from this book.
