Price: $4.99
Vincent Truman's "This Is My First Time So Please Be Brutal" depicts over a hundred cartoons from the Chicago artist, ranging from bad puns (toad rage) to sharp-tongued commentary (a priest asks 'why are there no atheists in foxholes', to which a boy replies 'because atheists don't start wars'). This debut collection of illustrations, inspired by such diverse artists as Johnny Hart, B. Kliban and Matt Groening, is at once hysterical, subversive, vile and thought-provoking. Vincent Truman is a celebrated writer, director, actor, artist and producer in Chicago. His theater work is especially well-lauded, garnering him numerous positive notices and articles.

    "It's My First Time for the first time for the last time" As I read It's My First Time for the first time, I couldn't help but feel sad that it would be my last time reading It's My First Time for the first time. It reminded me of my first time, long ago--er, I mean the second first time, because I don't tell people about my first first time. And so the way that It's My First Time reminded me of my first time for the first time for the last time meant I had a good time, way back when, during my second first time. Read this book! It'll make you wish you could have two first first times!

    "so sleepy...." Tiresome. Very derivative of other works, brings nothing new to the table. Save your money and read web comics.

    "Fookin Funny" Very hilarious. Takes the table and smashes it into bits over Stephen Larkin's jerkface head.

    "Re: so sleepy...." I welcome bad reviews as well as good reviews. However, since Mr. Larkin's review (1) did not come within any proximity of a purchase of the book [authors are informed whenever there's a purchase, be it here, on Amazon, in retail, etc.] and (2) chooses generalities over specific criticism, I have no reason to think anything other than Mr. Larkin is a fiction at best and a coward at worst. -Vincent Truman July 2009

    "Awesome First Time" Witty. Atmospheric. Time Consuming. Funny. Made utilizing paper. Pornographic. Has cartoons in it. Likes to mess with your mind.
