The Cute Manifesto
Just think of this as Kochalka's Dianetics. It's a powerful mixture of philosophy and comics, and it can literally change your life forever. In a dangerously uncertain world, Kochalka plots a theoretical path to happiness. Collecting some of his most intensely thoughtful work, this book struggles with all the big issues: comics and art, birth and death, technology and joy, and everything in between. It collects "The Horrible Truth about Comics," "Reinventing Everything" parts 1 and 2, "Sunburn," "The Cute Manifesto," and even Kochalka's famous "Craft is the Enemy" essays.
