Hopefully help is on the way for the craziness that is going on over at Wall Street (I'm glad that Congress didn't just do a quick approval vote on Monday and rather took a couple more days to look at the ramifications of what the bailout plan proposed by the government for Wall Street means - actually two days isn't really enough to examine what this will mean for the country at large, but it seems that something needs to be done in a hurry to avert even more craziness on Wall Street).
Anyways, I'm not here to talk about that kind of help, rather I want to put a spotlight on a comic book that came out last week from Dark Horse called Help Is On The Way, a collection of an online comic strip called Basic Instructions by Scott Meyer. Basic Instructions is a four panel comic strip with how-to titles such as: "How to Lie to a Child", "How to Call in Sick", How to Open a Snack Quietly", and "How to Accept Gratitude". Consider these words of wisdom from "How to Greet People": "Many men employ a silent head nod as a greeting. This is the greeting equivalent of tofu, as it is interpreted by the greetee based on their mood." or from " How to Slow the Spread of Germs": "I recommend you sneeze into a megaphone. This allows you to channel the germs away from people you don't want to infect, and focus them like a laser on people you do."
Help Is On The Way / Basic Instructions is drawn by Scott Meyer tracing photographs (his words from a strip in the book) and really just looks like your basic training manual that is illustrated. Go to: www.basicinstructions.net to read some of the strips, but the book is a mere $9.95 for 120 pages.
