Nicholas Gurewitch

Nicholas Gurewitch is one of the most inventive and hilarious comic artists of our time.  He uses stylized drawings to poke fun at what we expect to be happening.  There is always something else in the subtext, which is what I love about his work.  There are some where he consistently uses ordinary objects as the heads of the characters in the comics to personify people:

"Genius Sir"


"Hard Read"


Gurewitch makes references to video games and old TV shows as well to make the reader laugh by altering the original intent of the cartoon or game:

"Secret Mutant Hero Team"

"Mario Too"

"Punch Bout"

I could go on and on.  For more by The Perry Bible Fellowship, go check the website at
