I really need to make a point of announcing these...my biweekly column, All the Comics in the World, is up at Comixology.com. This week: Action Philosophers! Also, you can see one of my less embarrassing college notebook doodles.

Oh, man. I used to buy these for a philosophy proff buddy, back when my guy still worked at a comic shop. I miss the discount...
Very fun indeed!

Something obscure worth looking for-Will Cuppy-The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody. Paperback, A few fun illustrations, mostly silly, snarky, accurate history commentary.
And I belive this one is sadly out of print-Twisted Tales from Shakespeare, by Richard Armour. Ditto. Learn and laugh your butt off.

Thanks for the link! I'll start checking out your column from now on.

.. not how Science works, love. 1st, you build the machine, then it tells you what it's for.
Do you think I had the 1st idea what a squidhole was when I invented it? Certainly not! I was just messing about! That's when the very best & very Maddest Science gets done. I thought,Why, this alabaster octopus looks like it wants a nice transmission inside it,& fairly soon I had a thing that obviously had a Use, though what that Use could be was a total mystery.
(Sameness Engine) I haven't the 1st notion of what it's for! That's not why I made it-I made it for the sheer joy of making something new! It's getting up to tell me what it wants me to do, though, I can just feel it. It's been giggling a lot at night.

I particularly liked, "Sure, it's goofy to depict Manichaeism with pastiches of Jack Kirby's New Gods, but not inaccurate."

Edit: Okay, I just went to deepdiscount.com and got the first three volumes for $21.48 all told. :)
