About the Book:

Composed primarily of never-before-seen material (as well as a few Asher classics), Well, This Is Me gives the people what they want: universal health care. Okay, not that, but something almost as important: a delightful book of cartoons. Conveniently broken up into thematic chapters, this book explores traditional comedy playgrounds, like travel and work, as well as more lighthearted subjects, like death and dying.

Advance Praise for Well This Is Me:

“Asher Perlman can do in one frame what I need two hours and seventeen minutes to accomplish half as well! Insightful, human, and hilarious.” (Judd Apatow)

“Asher’s cartoons are just like him: very funny, keenly attuned to the inherent strangeness of existence, and very, very bald. He has such a rapier wit that one would do almost anything to avoid being lampooned by his pen (say, write a blurb to promote his cartoon compilation).” (Stephen Colbert)

“Asher Perlman’s cartoons are the kind of funny that make you question what it is to be a person, but in a good way.” (Ben Stiller)

“Thank goodness for Asher’s sense of humor. His unique style of comedy ranges from silly to brilliant to absurd. This book is laugh-out-loud funny. I’m so glad to finally have all these cartoons in one spot! (on my coffee table)” (Amber Ruffin)

“Any hack can conjure up the absurdity of human existence in a six hundred page novel (yeah you heard me, titans of literature!), but to do it with one image and one caption takes real genius. Asher Perlman’s comics are pure gold, and this collection is a treasure trove.” (Rian Johnson)

“Asher Perlman is the James Joyce of cartooning… if James Joyce was consistently hilarious and could draw well.” (Paul Feig)

“Asher Perlman is so goddamn funny that I laughed out loud perusing even the cartoons in this book that I’d previously cruelly rejected. He deserves every reader’s love at all times forever.” (Emma Allen)

“Asher Perlman has a keen ear for all our odd inner wants and murmurings. But luckily he also has a hand that can draw pictures about them that make us really really laugh (and feel less weird and alone). He also has a whole rest of his body, which is great too. But mainly right now, I’m focusing on the ear, the hand, and this remarkable book they made.” (John Hodgman)
