Holy shit, I never thought I would be reading and praising this comic for the intellectual exploration and deconstruction of civilisation but I am. Topics addressed by this book - religion, science, exploration, consumerism, economics, animal cruelty, animal domestication, aliens, the prime directive (the Star Trek kind), absurdism, the media, colonisation, war, PTSD, art, fame, fortune, workplace dynamics, sexism, politics, pyramid schemes, fake medicine (vitamins).
It's so freaking dense and incredibly well written. You can read this a few times and be rewarded even if you reread it within a few days and definitely in a few months. The book should be on the top of everyone's list, especially on this forum.
I only described the trade with the first 6 issues, the next and final trade will be out in a few months.
