Meghan's Pick

 xkcd: vol 0

A collection selected from the first 600 comics of the immensely popular webcomic, including various author and fan-favorites, lovingly assembled from high-resolution original scans of the comics (the mouseover text is discreetly included), and featuring lots of doodles, notes, and puzzles in the margins! 

At first glance, these pages full of crude stick figure drawings might not look like much, but once I opened this book, I couldn't put it down. It's a combination of offbeat humor that reminds me of Demetri Martin's stand up, random math puzzles, hand drawn graphs, and clever social observations. Each page is something entirely fresh and different. It's definitely unique and  well worth checking out.
