Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event where book bloggers get to drool over highly anticipated books.   This meme is hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,  With a blog name like that, I imagine Jill to wear black leather, very heavy mascara, and Hollywood Red lipstick.  Hello, Mistress Jill, and thanks for allowing me to join in the rave this week!

With Comic Con 2010 coming up, I wanted to dedicate my very first Waiting on Wednesday to a book that I have been drooling over for months:

The Deranged Stalker's Journal of Pop Culture Shock Therapy
by Doug Bratton

The first thing I thought when I saw this book was, it's like Diary of a Wimpy Kid for adults with a sense of humor! 

My friends know that I am already a fan of Doug Bratton's comic, Pop Culture Shock Therapy, which I re-post on my Facebook page quite frequently.  They are simply too funny not to share! So, imagine my excitement when I learned that Pop Culture Shock Therapy was coming out with a book - and not just a collection of comics, but a hilarious book with a very cool premise.

Full Disclosure Time:  Doug Bratton, the author and illustrator behind the Deranged Stalker's Journal, also happens to be one my oldest and dearest friends.  I won't embarrass him with stories of our teenage antics - not yet, anyway - but I can say that Doug is one of the good guys. 

If you want to check out this subtle genius for yourself, you're in for a treat. 
He will be at Comic Con!

I for one would personally pay good money to hear some of those teen antics stories.
