Hey! You! Get off the Internet! Haven't you heard? It's Social Media Blackout Day is almost here, a special occasion in which we solemnly reflect upon our lives by returning to a a simpler time of less technological advancement and find respite in the lack of constant sensory overload.
Wait, what do you mean, you haven't heard? Hasn't it been all over Tw — er, maybe you saw it on Fa — no, that's not right. I could have sworn that someone pinned it on — or did they reblog through — wait, how'd you even get here anywhere if it's supposed to be Social Media Blackout Day and you're supposed to be blacked out from Social Media?!
Logical fallacies aside, here are some great books that deal with Internet and social media. Now get off the Internets, kid!
[Ed. Note: To celebrate the five year anniversary of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies by Seth Grahame-Smith, Quirk will be hosting a number of PPZ related articles, giveaways, and editorials. This first piece, from frequent contributor Thom Dunn, is the first in a three part essay on the creation of Pride & Prejudice & Zombies, and Quirk's move to start publishing fiction. Enjoy! - Eric]

They tell ya, ‘Never hit a man with a closed fist.’ But it is, on occasion, hilarious.”

The fine folks here at Quirk Books asked me compile a list of my favorite punches, which I thought was pretty open-ended—like punches I've received? Punches I've delivered? There aren't even ten items on those lists combined. I'm not really big into boxing, either, so I decided to limit myself to great punches in the realm of comic books.
