The Big Book Ofâ¦ series of graphic books must have been printed especially for SubGenii, because it seems as if each and every one of those books appeals directly to us. The theme of each book is the same: Told in a comic-book graphic format, we are given a sarcastic look at the long history of certain social trends of the fringe elements of our society, which have had a long-range effect that has served to shape history. Sample titles from this series include the Big Book of Death, Big Book of Urban Legends, Big Book of Martyrs, and so on. My favorite is the Big Book of Conspiracies, a wise-mouthed book that can easily be subtitled "A Basic Introduction to Conspiracy Theories." They touch base with all of the biggest crackpot theories of history â" the JFK assassination, the Black Helicopters, the UFOs, the Freemasons, the Men in Black â" and treat each and every theory presented as the truthâ¦which only makes the reader wonder just which ones are only delusions, and which ones just possibly could be the real truthâ¦
If there's one book that "changed my life", this would be it. Yes, I am attributing a life-changing event to a mere graphic novel. Read this, you won't regret it.
