Reading Nietzsche: In the Comics

You’ll have to believe me that I have actually been reading from my Nietzsche anthology over the past two weeks, despite no specific passages to share in my weekly “Reading Nietzsche” post (would you believe, “I was busy having anti-semites shot?”).

But I would be remiss if I didn’t steer you towards a great way to start each day, especially if you go to some office every morning: Nietzsche Family Circus. Nietzsche Family Circus is, as the name suggests, random pairings of Nietzsche quotes and “The Family Circus” cartoons. Hit “refresh” for an endless stream of quotes and drawings that, for some reason, seem to match up perfectly.

If you like this kind of thing, consider also checking out Garfield Minus Garfield, which is Garfield comics with Garfield removed entirely, “in order to reveal the existential angst of a certain young Mr. Jon Arbuckle,” and Silent Garfield, which is comics with Garfield in them but all of his thoughts are removed.

Back to Nietzsche, here’s a cool comic by Canadian cartoonist Kate Beaton: “Thereafter pretentious men may quote me ad nauseam.”
