    One thought on “I Thought You Would Be Funnier”

    1. This collection of single panel comics and gags was the perfect thing to fly through in exactly ten minutes. Touching on universal themes such as death and clowns, cats and dogs, love and relationships, Shannon Wheeler's cartoons were a pleasant surprise for a first-timer.I do want to mention that though this promises to make you laugh out loud or feel something at least once during your reading experience, it didn't end up happening in my case. So the title I Thought You Would Be Funnier fit [...]

    2. The self-deprecating title alludes to the fact that this collection is comprised of cartoons that were rejected for use in the New Yorker, but one should not make the mistake of thinking that these cartoons are somehow inferior to Wheeler's contributions to the publication. In many cases, they're much funnier and more provocative; however, there are many blatantly obvious so-so ones. It's a short collection and the real funny ones get overshadowed amongst the so-so ones very easily. Worth the co [...]

    3. Had it at 4 stars (I was begrudging the book for not being longer - Come on Wheeler, get rejected some more) but I find myself picking it up more often than a lot of others, as well as seeing certain comics pop into my head at various social functions (especially the killing the conversation with one- - - ohhhh, aren't you curios now?)So an additional star for staying power (which is more than I can say for my ex <------wa-ha-ha-ah! That's not even true but it was just too easy to pass up, w [...]

    4. This was cute and funny, ended up sending pictures of the comic strips to my friends so they can also "lol" with me.

    5. Wheeler's rejected submissions are easily as funny as the cartoons that New Yorker Magazine did accept, but for some reason they didn't take these. Their loss is your gain. Wheeler has some great concepts at work here, expressed simply in a single panel. I interviewed Wheeler about his book before its release for Examiner:examiner/x-44112-PortlHighly recommended! Funny and witty guy.

    6. There are some absolutely brilliant panels in this book. I was laughing aloud through it. Glad I picked this up off of Comixology Unlimited.

    7. Best known for creating the iconic slacker Too Much Coffee Man, cartoonist Shannon Wheeler always entertains with his humorous observations of relationships, politics, and society, in multi-panel stories or as in the case with I Thought You Would Be Funnier, single gag panels. A regular contributor to The New Yorker, this volume collects Wheeler's cartoons that the respected publication rejected. Though always funny and insightful, several of the strips may have been to caustic for the magazine. [...]

    8. I Thought You Would Be Funnier is the newest cartoon collection from The New Yorker cartoonist Shannon Wheeler, composed of art that never made it to print… until now. With the noted New Yorker style, Shannon brings a sense of humor to the commentary of society itself. Many may recognize Wheeler’s name from his most famous work, Too Much Coffee Man. He submitted a large number of cartoons to The New Yorker before finally having one accepted in February 2009. Since then, more of his cartoons [...]

    9. There are some really great cartoons in this book, but they are too few, overwhelmed by all the pretty-good and sorta-bad cartoons. The vast majority of this collection lacks the punchiness of Wheeler's best work at The New Yorker. And dare I say it, much of this material is just too obvious (one of the worst things a single-panel cartoon can be). Example: Man pulls a clown out of the refrigerator and asks his wife "Does this smell funny to you?" The high points are nice and high, but the rest i [...]

    10. I am a big fan of Wheeler's work, and this collection is just great! Wheeler's style here is lively and clean, with great facial expressions sometimes evoked with the smallest quirk of a line. There are all cartoons rejected by The New Yorker, and in some cases I can see why -- the cartoons are often caustic and weird. Occasionally they just don't strike me as that good. But for the most part this book is riotously funny and I sort of want to pin 3/4 of the book to my office bulletin board, whic [...]

    11. Aptly named.Or, maybe context really is everything. I always enjoy Wheeler's cartoons when I encounter them in The New Yorker. Singularly.
