Item description for The Adventures of Barry Ween: Boy Genius 2.0 by Judd Winnick...

Barry Ween is every boy's fantasy personified. His intellect is beyond any that has existed before. In his presence, Einstein looks like a moron. Working in the secret lab in the back of his house, Barry slowly inches towards dominating the world, and he would, too, if the laws of chaos weren't so strongly enforced. Protecting obnoxious aliens seeking asylum, getting transported to the pedophilic old west, being kidnapped by bungling government agents - it's all par for the course with Barry. It's tough being ten years old and smarter than everyone else, but no one is going to attack the task with as much gusto as Barry Ween. A hilarious experiment mixing mad scientist movies, the Little Rascals, and words little kids aren't supposed to say.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Adventures of Barry Ween: Boy Genius 2.0?

Ween Rules!  Mar 27, 2008
"Calvin and Hobbes on crack," is what I can say in one sentence. Before Winick went commercial and started working for DC comics, he wrote this hidden gem. Though not for kids, this graphic novel will make anyone who enjoys Jim Carrey-type humor laugh out loud. The mouth on these characters seem to flow like water and they cuss more than sailors. The situations are engaging and there are pop culture references abound. Very consistently drawn and the comedy insults are hilarious.
one of the greatest comics ever printed  Mar 25, 2008
I've heard it said before, but i must agree this series is in a class all of its own. One of the funniest, most creative comic book ever written, its thoughtful and will have you laughing to youself all the way through. part's 2 and 3 are equally as good. its a shame this character hasn't gotten the recognition of such water-down kiddie ripoffs like jimmy neutron have received. i think barry ween would make an incredible animated series to air on network such as comedy central. or an r-rated movie. judd winick is truely a comedic genius.
Barry Ween Version 1.0  Apr 13, 2006
Before Judd Winick became a writer of superhero comics, he wrote (and drew) this comedy series about a boy with a 350 IQ. Barry Ween is a foul-mouthed, sarcastic, junior mad scientist. Sometimes his experiments go wrong, which is where the humor comes from. Be advised that while this comic is about kids, it's not actually for kids (although it's ok for teens).
Brilliantly offbeat  Sep 19, 2005
I actually found this title by chance after reading an interview with Judd Winick and am happy to say that it was very well received.

This book is a grown up version of what comics should strive to be. It's funny, moving, and entertaining in a brilliantly foul mouthed and arrogant package.

Along with Plastic Man and She-Hulk, this comic books bridges the gap between what comics are today and what they can be on their best day. Simply put Winik's work is genius and should be experienced by everyone who has ever picked up a comic book.

I can't recommend this and every other Barry Ween collection enough to you.

One side note, this is not intended for children in any way. Look for other alternatives, like Plastic Man or Power Pack for young reader appropriate choices that are still enteraining for adults.
Barry Ween--a Boy & his Death Ray.  Jan 13, 2005
All too few books/comics/films/tv shows/whatever still have the nerve to pull out all the stops, & make your laugh 'til you shriek, laugh 'til you could yourself an injury.

Barry Ween, bless his foul-mouthed tuchus, is one of them.

I wanted a Death Ray at his age!
