The Oatmeal: How to Tell If Your Cat Is Plotting to Kill You

Matthew Inman. Andrews McMeel, $14.99 trade paper (132p) ISBN 978-1-4494-1024-7
If nothing else, the Internet proves that people have an infinite capacity for guffaws brought on by pictures of cats. Given that reality, the Oatmeal’s collection of Web comics about cats is a certain crowd pleaser. Since fans of the genre never tire of jokes about cats pouncing on you in the night, batting you in the face, chasing imaginary creatures, wanting their tummies rubbed, and other proof that cats are crazy, cat humor appears to be above criticism. Inman’s style is simple and populist and asks little of the reader, and is effective in inducing laughter in bored office workers. The Oatmeal is itself on online sensation and Inman a Web comics superstar, making this a surefire winner (Oct.)
