Supersized: Strange Tales from a Fast-Food Culture

Supersized: Strange Tales from a Fast-Food Culture product reviews

Do you dare find out what's happening behind the counters of your neighbourhood fast-food joint? Then grab a bucket and dive into one of the creepiest graphic novels of the year!

Super-sized: Strange Tales from a Fast-Food Culture is an entertaining-and at times gut-wrenching-series of stories focusing on America's ubiquitous and potentially destructive fast-food culture.

A perfect companion to Super Size Me, the graphic novel will bridge the gaps between humour, fact, and heart, while peering behind the scenes of the fast food world.

I never bothered with Supersize Me when it came out, I knew that eating a lot of fast food isn't good for you and I didn't need some movie trying to gross me out to gets its point across. I did take interest in the man who chose to eat nothing but McDonald's for 30 days, but that was about it. I requested this from the library out of curiosity and really, it was just a waste of my time and I skipped through 90% of it.

Kids spit in prepared food, pick up food off the floor and pack it up for folks at the drive-through, spiders in a soda cup are drunk down by a kid and then burst out his nose etc. These gross tales are deep in the well of urban mythology, so much so that one has to wonder if he actually got these stories as first hand accounts.

The main problem with the book is that while it is trying to stick with the selling point of the film, don't over consume, too much takeaways is a bad thing etc etc. it tries to hard to grab the younger audience with being gross which ruins any chance the book has at telling any lasting moral.

Product reviews for listing 2414: Simon's Cat
Written by Simon Tofield

Product image for SimonBased on Simon Tofield's animations, "Simon's Cat" depicts and exaggerates the hilarious relationship between a man and his cat.

The daily escapades of the adorable, food-demanding pet and his doting owner come to life through simple black-and-white line drawings.
