Exactly. That would be like saying that cartoons are just for kids.

You know, I've just read a book about death that thinks it's really trendy to use archaic language.

"Dieth"? Read™!

That's great to hear. Now I know I am still a kid at heart.... or mentally challenged.

I'm sure I already read about a zombie eating game quite recently. Not this one but definitely something involving eating brains.

If you think comics are just to make you laugh then you should probably avoid Art Spiegelman's Maus. Sometimes the comic is just another form in which to get the point across.

But to take "Get Fuzzy" (which was the source of the original comic) sometimes the humour comes from depicting something that people can identify with. As a result, it is possible to lose the humour because the truth thus shown is all too apparent. I personally like to think that there really aren't that many real people in the world as stupid and venal as Bucky (the cat) but it is worrying to think that characters like that might exist in reality.

Or Auschwitz by Pascal Croci. I have that one in French, so I understand only half of what is said, but enough to see that it is not funny (not mention that the title of course tells that already).
