Rehabilitating Mr. Wiggles (Vols. 1–4)


Collections of the hit alternative comic strip that ran in newspapers and magazines throughout the world from 1999-2012. Follow the misadventures of everyone’s favorite pill-popping, trash-talking, misanthropic teddy bear and his bald, human companion. Mature readers only.

  • [Neil Swaab] exercises the honored strategy of laughing the devil to scorn, which reduces—a bit, at least—the guiltiness one feels for chortling at his funny, funny (hideous, blasphemous, obscene) ideas.

  • Each strip dances gleefully past the far fringes of good taste…like a continuation of the angry underground comix of R. Crumb and S. Clay Wilson. [Swaab’s] depraved little heart is in the right place.

  • Rehabilitating Mr. Wiggles reads like a twisted Calvin & Hobbes, dealing with subjects like debauchery, lewd sex, and religion—all in a really dark, obscene, and totally hilarious way.

  • If you don’t love Mr. Wiggles you’re probably not fun or cool.
