'Man, I Hate Cursive' by Jim Benton is a collection of cartoons that I'm almost embarassed to have found funny. They definitely have a dark side, but along with that, there is occasionally a sentimental side as well.
From the title cartoon, where a wizard summons a lemon instead of a demon thanks to cursive writing, to a man and a woman getting ready for a night out. She transforms into a beauty, he into a chimpanzee. There are comics about art and animals and parenting. There are jokes about God and medical humor.
Some of it is irreverent and a bit gross at times. Some of it is touching and feels like how the world is. I laughed or smiled at all of it. I'm glad I got introduced to this artist through this collection.
