The cartoon hero of the workplace. --San Francisco Examiner Dilbert is the cubicle-bound star of the most photocopied, pinned-up, downloaded, faxed, and e-mailed comic strip in the world. As fresh a look at the inanity of office life as it brought to the comics pages when it first appeared in 1989, this new Dilbert collection comically confirms to the working public that we all really know what's going on. Our devices might be more sophisticated, our software and apps might be more plentiful, but when it gets down to interactions between the worker bees and the clueless in-controls, discontent and sarcasm rule, as only Dilbert can proclaim.
Annie might feel as if she's between hammer and anvil, but those are about the only menaces she avoids during the early 1950s!

Meanwhile, Daddy Warbucks, Punjab, and the Asp are a thousand miles away, with no clue to the whereabouts of America's spunkiest kid. Here Today, Gone Tomorrow reprints all daily and color Sunday strips from October 29, 1951 through July 5, 1953. Included are five stories replete with greed and murder, atomic boats, blackmailers, poisoners, and deadly mutineersyet also filled with good Samaritans and friendship from the most unexpected quarter, while also posing the question: can romance survive in a town called Futility?
Whether you need a robotic companion to remember the names of people you meet at parties, an algorithmic pal to help you stomp on the crispy leaves in autumn, or just a really, really big 'bot for no particular reason at all, Small Robots is your spotter's guide to the wonderful world of robotic friends. They bring tea, complain in restaurants, retrieve lost balloons, but they also tackle more serious problems: mental health, disability, discrimination and grief, and will, when called upon, fiercely defend the marginalised and oppressed. This collection of one hundred of the best and most beloved 'bots delves into the functions, features, dimensions and backstories of these wonderful but often bafflingly obtuse creations. Discover how they perform their all-important tasks in the world of their large human friends, revealing how acts of kindness can be achieved in the littlest and most unexpected ways.
`Bush can literally draw anything. I've watched him draw a stick of celery with enough finesse and detail to make a botanist weep. And then, in the next breath, he drew Rick Astley's hair. Brilliantly.' Mel Giedroyc What do celebrities get up to when they're at home and away from the glare of the public eye? Between playing songs on Absolute Radio, Andy Bush always wondered about the mundane, boring stuff famous people must do, just like you and I, and he created illustrations of his musings. For the first time, the very best of Andy's illustrations are compiled together into an essential guide that attempts to answer such important questions as: --Does Elton John sometimes lose his remote down the back of the sofa? --Do Kraftwerk put the bins out together? --And does Lady Gaga's snack ever get stuck in the vending machine?
