Jon Rosenberg, you had me at the gray-skinned alien who said, “On our planet, people worship pancakes.”

That’s the point—it was page three, I believe—that I realized that Goats: Infinite Typewriters was spinning out of control and I loved it.

This first print collection of Rosenberg’s whack-a-doodle webcomic—maybe whack-a-mole would be more appropriate if he’d write a mole into the story—was my kind of strip. It’s got aliens, a chicken named Diablo, monkeys as assistant editors, bikers, alternate universes, good Hitler, a character coincidentally named Jon, and yes, even a goat.

Even better, it includes a stop at my exit of the New Jersey Turnpike—#9, for those who don’t know—and who isn’t excited about that?
