ZOMG A NEW SMBC BOOK...and monocles?

Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal: The Most Dangerous Game

Seems like only yesterday when we were throwing Zach Weiner a party to celebrate his first-ever English book, but the prolific genius has already wrapped up his second compilation. The Most Dangerous Game is another 74 full-color pages of Zach's finest work, supplemented with the second installment of the Choose Your Own Adventure from the first book. Also, all of Breadpig's non-sustainable proceeds from the book are going straight to the fine folks at Khan Academy so they can keep turning the traditional education system on its head.

We will have a limited stock of these books at the SMBC booth at NYCC (#1724) on Saturday and Sunday, so come by early and get them signed by Zach! If you won't be in town, you can also pre-order them off of our online store.

In case you're concerned, this is more of a Rocky II than a Matrix 2 kind of sequel. I mean, just look at the polar bears.


Introducing...the Gentleman's Single-Use Unlubricated Monocle

Many moons ago, there was a SMBC comic about a monocle in a condom wrapper. We love turning the bizarre into reality, so when Zach approached us with the idea of making these, we said yes immediately. Now, with the help of engineer-and-occasional-curler Ben Peters and the artistic touch of steampunk god David Malki, we're proud to debut these beauties at NYCC on Saturday.

  • We did make some lubricated ones. They were too gross for the public.

    We will do our best to make them available online!

  • I also know a few people who would totally buy a bunch of these. In fact, we’d like to install a vending machine in the toilets here at work!

  • This is fantastic! I have the first book and I am so happy you are supporting the Kahn Academy with the second. Now there’s a guy totally “creating” outside the box. And to think it all started with him trying to help his nephews study on line. There are some significant implications for the way the lessons are formatted (simple manuscript on a black surface) and the verbal delivery of instruction provided by the Kahn Academy Tutorials for students with Autism who do not relate to faces, but respond to computer simulations. If only we could get our school systems to allow us to use youtube with the kids. I would just love to talk to him sometime about creating instruction at the primary level – his videos start at about third grade….but I see a need for even younger children just learning to read and do math and science.
