A Cartoon Guide: The Book!

So one of my summer projects was to get all the cartoons I'd drawn into one place so I could print them out and keep them 4ever 'n ever. Fortunately, Lulu is awesome and I recently formatted the document and printed them out in one 145 page book:

It just came this weekend and I love it! It looks exactly how I wanted it to look. You guys, I would have taken it to bed if it would have been socially appropriate.

And you can buy it too right here on Lulu!

I could care less about making money off the book. But I have this fantasy about someday walking into a fellow doctor's house and they have the book on their coffee table. Don't be coldhearted.... help me realize my fantasy.

Of course, all the cartoons are still available on this blog. So why would you buy the book if you can read the content for free? I'm glad you asked.

Six reasons why you should buy my book when you can already read the cartoons online for free:

1) Great present for your nephew who just graduated from med school, and he already has a stethoscope, so you can’t buy him that.

2) Can be placed strategically on coffee table prior to hot date with cute doctor who lives next door.

3) You bought Jorge Cham’s PhD book and all his comics are online. Plus you bought that book with all the funny cake mistakes.

4) Much easier to bring to toilet.

5) Book comes highly recommended by:
--Fizzy’s husband
--Fizzy’s mom
--Actually, Fizzy’s entire extended family

6) Will make Fizzy smile. And you want to make Fizzy happy, don’t you? In spite of her annoying tendency to refer to herself in the third person?

Buy book here!

(It will be available on Amazon in 1-2 months, but it's cheaper from Lulu.)


  1. Given Jorge Cham's PhD comic was recently turned into a movie, does that mean "Cartoon Guide to becoming a Doctor" will be turned into a movie too? :-D

    Good idea though, I might have to buy the book at some point. :)

  2. You should totally buy the book!

    And yes, it will become a movie. With two sequels. And three prequels, all of which will suck.

  3. It's official...mine is on the way! And as a helpful tip for everybody, if you use the coupon code "FALLBOOKS" right before submitting the order, you can get 20% off.

    Thanks, Dr. McFizz!

  4. I would love to buy one to put in the med student lounge. Give us a nice study break between learning from which arch the proximal subclavian artery develops and memorizing the eye bleeding steps of the TCA cycle.

  5. Congratulations on your book! Now, when are you going to publish your med-chic-lit novel?

  6. SuFu: Please do :)

    OMDG: Maybe when it stops sucking :)

  7. Sweet! There is an eBook version! I bought it for my iPad, that way I'll have the comfort of your comics with me at all times, like on call, or at the parents' for Thanksgiving...

  8. I hope you don't mind, I put your book in a post saying how great you are etc... have a look here at and if you don't like it, just send a comment or something and i will delete it :) Good luck with your book!

  9. 145 pages? That's a whole lotta cartoons! just bought a copy!

  10. Jenn: Don't forget, also on the toilet! :)

    Cookie Monster: Mind? That's dang near the nicest stuff anyone every written about me! I'm totally putting you on my blogroll.

    Polar Bear: Thanks!

  11. Aww thank you! Anything else comes up like that and I'd love to put it on my blog again! :) Thank you for putting me on your blogroll, I have now done the same!

  12. Aw, it's a pity the coupon doesn't apply for international orders (I had hoped for a partial reduction like $3, but alas), but there's more needed than that to stop me from buying it. Congrats on publishing your little baby, and wishing you lots and lots of success with it in the future! :-)
