Steven Weissman won the Harvey Award for "Best New Talent" in 1998, and Fantagraphics Books is now proud to present Don't Call Me Stupid!, a collection of the comics that garnered him this outrageously prestigious honor. The first book in the "Yikes" series, serving as a perfect introduction to the cast, has plenty to laugh at and includes such "Yikes" "classics" as "James Watch," "Back in the Day" and the title story, "Don't Call Me Stupid!" As funny as it is, though, "Don't Call Me Stupid" is an insightful book about childhood friendships, with their attendant sorrows, suicide, contagious disease, vandalism, theft, grudges, abuse, dismemberment, broken homes, murder, insanity, romance, video games and cigarette smoking. But it's funny! Each story is printed in Weissman's patented two-color "chubby format." This collection of "Tykes" strips is sure to leave readers of all ages laughing for more. Each of the gang takes a turn at the spotlight here: Li'l Bloody, the Pull-Apart Boy, X-Ray Spence, Dead Boy and the rest of the mischievous young monsters cavort and explore one of the strangest neighborhoods in funnybookland. We'd give this one a "PG" for cartoon violence and smoking, but don't let that scare you, kids — pick up a copy, and discover why Weissman counts the Hernandez Brothers among his biggest fans!
