Tim Kreider

Tim Kreider’s cartoons have attracted a following among both the cognoscenti and the fringe for their stiletto-sharp intelligence and unprecedented viciousness. His humor is both existential and crude, erudite and puerile, personally revealing as a drunken blackout and politically trenchant as a troubled loner. His vision of the human condition is of a man distracted from the titantic starship hovering over his city by a glimpse of a girl’s ass; he is tortured by secret, perverse sympathy and love for George W. Bush; and the only joy or solace he finds in this life is in setting a monkey’s ass on fire. You will be ashamed to laugh, but laugh you will.

"Kreider rules." – David Foster Wallace

"Kreider ’s stuff is not all political, but most of what he does packs outrage: at oppressors, bigots, overlords, fools. Not for the squeamish, unless they’re too passive and need a wake-up call." – The New Haven Advocate

"When some smart guy says that artists dissect the human condition, he might call Tim Kreider a fine artist and his cartoons art, because Kreider’s pen wit, and gall really cut open the human condition." – The Comic Book Bin

"Not only is [The Pain — When Will It End?] the funniest comic strip ever, but, well, that’s it: it’s the funniest comic strip ever." – Walrus Comix
