Written by Mike Baehr | Filed under wallpapersvideopreviewsnew releasesIvan Brunetti 10 Feb 2009 3:19 PM

Now available for preview and pre-order: Ho! The Morally Questionable Cartoons of Ivan Brunetti.

Sam's Strip: The Comic About Comics collects the entirety of Mort Walker and Jerry Dumas's sharp-witted feature, ahead of its time for its use of fourth-wall-breaking meta-humor.
