Artists James Carr and Archana Kumar thought, why not combine the two? After all, Hitler was indeed a hipster of his time, a failed artist in Vienna scrounging up extra dollars or kroner painting quick architecture scenes for the tourists.In their heavily trafficked website, "hipsterhitler.com," these comic artists posit a new sort of history in which Hitler, wears Silverlake-trendy glasses, thrift store sweaters, and outspoken T-shirts, and the reader begins to quickly understand the history of Hitler in a new and strangely engaging way.The Feral House book of Hipster Hitler includes a few dozen pages of comics heretofore unseen online.

    Recenzie mai detaliata pe blogul meuO investiție ratată făcută de editura ART 64 de note pe - nota finala: 3.67Update 26.05.2014: Am vorbit cu un prieten duminica (25.05.2014) despre această carte şi i-am zis că m-a scos din sărite şi că nu am priceput nimic din ea şi că nu am râs deloc. Prietenul ia cartea în mână, se apucă să citească şi, minune, începe să râdă Am rămas siderat. Şi l-am întrebat ce naibii vede de râs că eu nu văd nicio legătură care să mă fac [...]

    Giggly. Bonus points for Broseph Stalin.

  • Divya Gaba

    Absolutely Hysterical! Read for shits and giggles. To avoid looking like an asshole, do not open this on a bus in Berlin.

  • Fatma

    i didn't get 95% of what was happening but i enjoyed the "hipster" part of it.oh and the artwork is not that great.

  • Aaron

    This is funny as hell. Considering that both Hitler and hipsters have annoyed the shit out of a lot of people, this is a must read. In no way does this glorify/condone either, as it simply pokes fun at two nuisances. Now, where do I find a "Triumph of the Chill" t-shirt?

  • Dean

    This collection of comics chronicling Hitler as a 'hipster' is truly hit or miss in tone and humor but where it truly delivers are the clever and hilarious t-shirt witticisms that he wears with each strip. My personal favorite - 'I control the French Press.' Hipster indeed!

  • Simone Cox

    very amusing, love his shirts, they should write a version about Trump

  • Margit

    what is it with me & graphic novels about hitler ??

  • Patrick

    Vegetaryan triumph of the chill.

  • Gabriel Pinto

    Aunque el remate de muchas de las tiras falla, se agradece que estén llenas de humor negro y momentos políticamente incorrectos. Por momentos, la idea de que Hitler era en verdad un hipster incomprendido, les juega un poco en contra, lo cual tensiona el relato histórico que hay sobre él. Si bien, no es tan terrible esto - especialmente, porque el libro logra entregar antecedentes sobre el desarrollo del nazismo en la Alemania pre WWII y el posterior desarrollo de esta - creo que muchas gente [...]

    I've read this book a few years ago, but I must say that, this book may have been the okay-est funny satire and comedic representation of Hitler's life and ideas. The perspective is indeed chuckle-able as, well it shows Hitler being the judging creep, his in-hand coffee entering the frame every few scenes. I guess that's how James Carr wanted to portray Hipsters. And now that I think about it, he was indeed a judging creep. Oh yeah, this book is a comic, not a novel. So, if you enjoy looking at [...]

  • Helen

    This is a collection of comic strips based on the supposed parallels between AH and today's hipsters - the comic strip or graphic novel both criticizes/pans hipsters because of their supposed tweeness and so forth but also tacitly acknowledges that they are a segment of the population, probably a key segment leading to gentrification etc. I suppose this book represents a sly demonization of hipsters - drawing such an analogy - however, it's also humorous, in its own way, in portraying AH and his [...]

  • Riikka

    I have somewhat crooked sense of humor so I this worked pretty well for me. The book had it's stronger and weaker spots tough. But what is definitely a credit to this comic is that it actually reminded me of some historical facts that had slipped my mind over the years.

  • Matti Karjalainen

    James Carrin "Hipster Hitler" hymyilytti kyllä hetkittäin, mutta vitsi hipsteri-führeristä kävi melko nopeasti vanhaksi ja alkoi toistaa itseään. Nettisarjakuva-tausta näkyi puisevana piirrosjälkenä, eikä taustoihin oltu viitsitty panostaa lainkaan.

  • Nadio

    Das Lachen bleibt einem mitunter im Halse stecken. Allein die Idee ist total abgefahren. Aber es ist clever, witzig, gemein. Ich hab jedenfalls mehrmals laut gelacht. Besonders gut find ich die wechselnden T-Shirts, die Hipster-Hitler trägt.

  • Nina

    Turning Hitler into a hipster, placing him and his actions into a different time? Brilliant! It's that good, I couldn't be bothered about the artwork. It sucks. LOL Kudos for the shirt prints though! Excellent! :D

  • Richard M.

    The usual satire for the meme generation. Some nice t-shirts, though

  • Andreea Cornilă

    half an hour of laughing and saying "same" to myself

  • Craig

    Having never read the web comic online this was a hilarious revelation. 5 stars just for the t-shirt slogans!

  • Nina

    AMAZING!! What a great way for teens who HATE history to get a snippet of knowledge, among all the snide humor.

  • janna.g

    awesome :))

  • Vladimir Simion-boeriu

    distractiv pentru tron si autobuz

  • Rosemary

    Hilarious, the t-shirt slogans alone are worth five stars.

  • Chris Puzak

    Very funny.

  • Sabrina

    love the tshirts and broseph stalin very socially and politically incorrect but also very funny

  • Zuraika Redo

    It's not super hilarious, it's the concept itself that is funny. And the tee shirts. Yes, the tee shirt are worth the buying!

  • Karkeologi

    T-shirts are fun.
