"Dilbert", the famous comic strip, has grown far beyond its original place on the newspaper page and has now translated to the "Dilbert" television show on UPN, calendars, cards, watches, balloons, and even Dilberto's, Adams's real-life push to create a nutritious food. In this 16th collection of the Sunday strip, fans will get another hilarious glimpse into the lives of Dilbert, Dogbert, Ratbert, and the crazy cube crew. Full color.
Everyone who's in business, works for a business, or even just gives others the business is amazed: Scott Adams never lacks for yet another way to lampoon the corporate world. It's not that Adams is anti-business. He's more anti-bad boss than anything. But poor management practices, the effects of bad decisions, and what it all means for the average worker add up to more comedic material than even the man who created Dilbert can tame. Since Dilbert was first syndicated in 1989, Adams has built a following that would be the envy of any corporate sales and marketing team. His work not only generates howls from readers as they rush to plaster it on lunch-room refrigerators and scan it into interoffice e-mails, it has those same fans reading about their workplaces every Sunday in a multiple-panel, color format.And that's what this treasury, The Collected Dilbert Sundays, collects for the first time-all the colorful Sunday cartoons of the past five years This 16th collection published by Andrews McMeel Publishing offers yet another glimpse into the zany life of Dilbert, Dogbert, Ratbert, and the rest of the crazy cube crew through the masterpiece Sunday comics. Here's even more of the great Adams's irony, sarcasm, and satire that so many have come to depend upon to cope with the corporate workplace. Many of this collection's Sunday cartoons have never before appeared in color. A great number will be new even to loyal Dilbert followers. But all of them, without fail, will include that trademark humor that has made Adams and his office-bound alter ego icons of the popular American scene. Dilbert, in fact, has grown far beyond its original place on newspaper pages. The strip and itscharacters have translated to the Dilbert television show on UPN, calendars, cards, watches, balloons, and even Dilberitos, Adams's recent real-life push to create a nutritious food. All this points to the strength, appeal, and empathetic tone that the Dilbert phenomenon represents. The Collected Dilbert Sundays humorously continues the tradition of poking fun at the world of business from which we all seek to temporarily escape.Bank
