Has anyone had a chance to look at any of the books in this series? I have read a few of the articles in Watchmen and Philosophy. They are a nice introduction to philosophy and some of the articles are pretty funny. One of the articles I read was "What's So Goddamned Funny? The Comedian and Rorschach on Life's Way" with a sub-section titled "Let's Put These Jokers through Some Changes". I was introduced to this series many years ago when a friend bought be The Simpson's and Philosophy for a birthday present. I don't remember seeing any others back then, but now there are quite a few. They are light reading, but enjoyable. If nothing else, I bet they provide a few academics with a fun job. Here are a few that caught my eye.
