The Rejection Collection Vol. 2: The Cream of the Crap by Matthew Diffee

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Still funny, but a slightly weaker collection than the first. There’s a reliance on sex and toilet humour here that wasn’t quite so prevalent in the first collection, and on the whole it comes across as slightly less clever than its predecessor. The questionnaire forms that were a feature of the first book are repeated here, but feel forced and arbitrary, and don’t actually reveal anything real about the cartoonists involved, which we did see in Volume One.

Overall, it’s still a funny book– these are good cartoons by talented and intelligent cartoonists. It just doesn’t quite reach the heights of its predecessor.
