First, Dave Kellett gave away PDFs of Literature: Unsuccessfully Competing Against TV Since 1953. Then, since the physical book is out of print, AdHouse announced that their nominee, Afrodisiac, could be read online at their website.
That made me curious about the status of the other four nominees for the Eisner Award for Best Humor Publication. Gene Luen Yang’s Prime Baby ran online at the New York Times Magazine website before it was collected, so that’s fully available. Julia Wertz’s Drinking at the Movies (my pick in this category) has had many of its pages posted at her old website.
That leaves Bongo’s Comic Book Guy: The Comic Book and Shannon Wheeler’s I Thought You Would Be Funnier, published by Boom!. If either are available online (without violating copyright), please let me know — I’d love to update the links so voters can be fully informed.
Update: (4/30/11) Boom! has since announced that you can read I Thought You Would Be Funnier online for free, in part to make up for a glitch. The book was left off the online ballot for the first few days of voting.
