The Birds is award-winning writer Robin D Laws' comic strip.

"I look forward, near-slavering, to those days that Robin's blog reads, "CLICK HERE for another installment of the Birds." Where most squeaky-clean comic strips are trying to channel After-School Specials, The Birds is strictly Saturday Night Special."
- John Kovalic, Dork Tower

The Birds sample

Pete, a not so loveable loser always ready to become a fanatic for any cause, craves the respect of his coolly abusive best friend Steve. His wife, Shirley, pursues Steve while half-heartedly plotting Pete's demise. Her best friend, Loretta, signals her unrequited love for Pete by sending him severed raccoon heads. Eventually Steve's Dad shows up, fresh out of prison. All of them are heavily armed.

Finally appearing in a collected edition after providing years of appalling hilarity to readers of writer and game designer Robin D. Laws' blog, The Birds is a deadpan, minimalist missile aimed straight at the heart of the avian condition.

"It's something utterly, mindbogglingly different from anything I do, anything I could do, or (most importantly) anything I should do. Or perhaps I love the Birds simply because it's brilliant."

- John Kovalic, Dork Tower

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
