Enjoy this very first collection of Wondermark, a sarcastic, silly, and razor-sharp gag comic strip created entirely from 19th-Century woodcuts and engravings. This volume, now in its fifth printing, includes the first 100 Wondermark strips as well as a Making-Of-Wondermark article and about 10 other pages of material never published online. Featuring an introduction by Ryan North of Dinosaur Comics... and one comic that was too hot for the Web. It's just like a DVD what with all the special features, except more flammable and it won t fit in your player! Also, the book can be operated successfully by old people.
Wondermark has been nominated for the Eisner Award, the highest honor in comics, for Best Humorous Publication, as well as Ignatz and Harvey awards in similar categories. Wondermark runs weekly in college and alternative newspapers nationwide as well as online in The Onion's AV Club.

David Malki ! is the creator and author of the comic strip "Wondermark", a unique gag strip created entirely from Victorian-era woodcuts. Formerly a professional movie-trailer editor, Malki now spends his days making Wondermark comics and clever spinoff items.Review:
...I was so excited to have received the book so quickly that I read the entire thing in one sitting, which I would not necessarily recommend, as I spent the next four days thinking in snippety Wondermark punchlines and comic panels, which was a very bizarre experience... The humour often comes from non sequiturs and anachronisms (primarily, of course, the juxtaposition of modern-day dialogue with the turn-of-the-century illustrations) and what I find rather fascinating about the work is that the humour in the pieces is very dependent on the reader's mood and disposition: what you many not find at all amusing on one day you may find absolutely hysterical a few days later. However I must confess to not being smart enough to understand all the humour, but that which I do find funny, I find very, very funny. --Mandy J. Watson, Brainwavez.org
Not since CHRIS WARE burst upon the comix scene has there been this effective and bravura a comedic application within the sequential arts of Nineteenth Century iconography, sensibility and syntax. David Malki's Wondermark dazzles with same level of visual appeal while setting the new highest standard in rib-tickling fun and laugh-out-loud humour on every page! --Dave Sim, popular creator of Cerebus, although even he freely admits to being substantially less well-thought-of than, say, CHRIS WARE.
A gloriously demented comic that finally puts to rest the age-old question, 'What if the illustrations from a Victorian-era Sears & Roebuck catalog starred in a Sid and Marty Krofft Saturday morning television series? --Francesco Marciuliano, writer of Sally Forth and creator of Medium Large.
