He wrote more than 100 graphic nonfiction books including Marx for Beginners, The Dictionary of Human Stupidity, The True History of Uncle Sam, 100 Proposals to Save What Is Left of Mexico, Hitler for Masochists, The Stomach Is First, The Manual of the Perfect Atheist, The Pitiful Presidents, and Would Jesus Christ Have Been Catholic?
