If You Give a Fanboy a Comic

If You Give a Fanboy a Comic (with apologies to Laura Joffe Numeroff and Felicia Bond).

If you give a fanboy a comic book, he will ask for boards and bags.

When you give him boards and bags, he will ask for storage boxes.

When he’s filled up all of his storage boxes, he’s going to ask for an omnibus.

After he reads all of his omnibuses, he will want bookshelves to store his books. He might get carried away, and fill up all of the other shelves with superhero books too.

When he’s done reading, the fanboy is going to want to buy movies featuring his favorite superheroes.

To show everyone his fondness for these superheroes, the fanboy is going to want to wear t-shirts, hats, and pins that broadcast his love.

After he gets dressed in his superhero apparel, he’s probably going to want to read a comic book…


  1. Hoorah! At least he's easy to shop for....

  2. I giggled a LOT at this post! I loved If You Give A Pig A Pancake, and I didn't read it until I was an adult working in a bookstore.
