Nerd Haiku takes a fun, light-hearted, light saber–pointed poke at all the absurdities, stereotypes, and truths of nerd culture. These 200 thoughtful and clever poems speak to the core elements of the nerd universe: science fiction, fantasy, comic books, super heroes, big-budget movies, role-playing games, technology, TV series, animation, cosplay, and video games, as well as its celebrated (and derided) authors, artists, actors, and franchises. From comic book and comedy nerds to computer and design nerds, every kind of nerd will appreciate and cherish these gems of poetic wisdom.
Robb Pearlman is a senior editor of pop culture and entertainment books at Rizzoli International Publications and the author of Spoiler Alert: Bruce Willis Is Dead and 399 More Endings from Movies, TV, Books, and Life (Lyons, 2010). Known in comic book stores from Gotham City to a galaxy far, far away, he has been known to fly into a rage when people diss Aquaman. He lives in Garwood, New Jersey.
