Dilbert 2.0: 20 Years of Dilbert Hardcover – October 21, 2008
by Scott Adams
Scott Adams “is a VERY tough act to follow.” –Suzanne Tobin, Washington Post
In the tradition of The Complete Far Side and The Complete Calvin and Hobbes, Dilbert 2.0 celebrates the 20th anniversary of Scott Adams’s Dilbert, the touchstone of office humor.
This special slipcased collection–weighing in at more than ten pounds with 600 pages and featuring almost 4,000 strips–takes readers behind the scenes and into the early days of Scott Adams’s life pre-Dilbert and on to the success that followed when Dilbert became an internationally syndicated sensation.
Divided into five different epochs, Dilbert 2.0 gives readers a glance at some of Adams’s earliest strips, like those created for Playboy, and a peek at an abundance of special content ranging from numerous rejection letters to Adams’s first cartooning check, and more.
Adams personally selected the material for this collection and offers original comments and humorous asides throughout. Also included is a disc that contains every Dilbert comic strip to April 2008.
