Matt Bors thinks you should improve your bookshelf somewhat

Cartoonist and publisher of The Nib, Matt Bors has announced a new collection of his political commentary. “We Should Improve Society Somewhat” drops in April 2020 and offers a survey of  “our current dystopian hellscape.”

From the press release: “Working as a political cartoonist for more than a decade, Bors’ brain is now fully melted by the internet and churning out his most memorable satire. This book collects his best work from the last several years of non-stop political tumult over Trump, ineffectual Democrats, the collapse of all reason, and the hypocritical sin of participating in society while criticizing it.” 

This will be a hot title, especially once civilization collapses and we’ll need books for fuel. You can preorder your copy today:

2020 is looking to be a banner year for cartoonists publishing books, so if you have something coming out, let us know. We’ll be posting a Book Nook on the news feed here on Fridays when there’s a release.
