I still watch cartoons. If that sounds like you and you just don't quite dig the vibe of Plato's "Allegory of the Cave" give this one a try. Maybe Socrates and Garfield would have made good buds.

This is a very instructional and educative comic, you can learn a lot, however, this is a highly biased book. The author has a very specific opinion, and thus he criticize religion and represent the authors he didn't like as funny as possible.
Which is ok, but if you are not a mature reader, that could influence your own opinions.

It's philosophy like it was never sought before, only in graphic form. Very humorous and insightful.
