GPF Books: Portable Funnies

Last updated August 14, 2017

GPF strips preserved as ink soaked into deceased flora? No kidding! Here's the place for all the info on our hot-selling books!

As you may have already noticed, all of the books listed below are currently out of print. Sadly, we are no longer associated with any of our previous publishers, so we're in the process of looking for other options. Yes, we are planning on bringing out new books, but at this time we have no estimates on when that will be. Since our next book will most likely be from a print-on-demand publisher, the primary responsibility for laying out and formatting the book will probably fall back on me, and my time is already stretched pretty thin. If there are any further updates on this, I'll make sure to post a News item about it (although Premium subscribers may hear about it first via the Rumor Mill).

Legacy (Out of Print) Books

The following books are from our legacy book series and are currently out of print, so count yourself lucky if you still have one. Obtaining these books now are extremely difficult. Be wary of resellers who may be marking these books up at ridiculous prices. Also note that if you purchase one of these books from a reseller, Jeff won't see a dime from it, as the royalties for these books have already been paid.
