Ok there is so much that sounds right about this. You tell me it's by McSweeney's and I go OMG! You tell me it's also an anthology for young adult and I go NO WAY! And then you tell me it has a bunch of illustrations including a contribution by Marcel Dzama and I go I NEED THIS BOOK NOW. Ok, it just sounds awesome! Doesn't it sound awesome? Well I for one can't wait! And what's up with the cover, that image certainly doesn't leave your head quickly ha!

What can't you wait for to be released?
