Perhaps I am "cheating" by counting B.C. Strikes Back a book. (As if this endeavor has any rules to break!) After all, it's not a book in the traditional sense and isn't held together by a storyline the way a graphic novel would be — it's just a collection of cartoons.

I was going through my books stored in Lemon Grove deciding which to keep, and I wanted to give B.C. Strikes Back a quick read before chucking it onto the discard pile. The read-through elicited a half-hearted "meh!" Several of the cartoons were clever, and a handful were even funny, but on the balance they were unremarkable.

And so a book no one will miss will probably find its way to a charity shop bookshelf, and a cheap entry gets added to my list.
