Item description for The Adventures of Barry Ween Boy Genius 3 by Judd Winnick...
In this third hilarious trade paperback Barry Ween's bringing monkeys! He is the world's smartest human being; his "big brain," has a limitless capacity for knowledge, and Barry has no problem putting that knowledge to use. That's pretty cool when you consider the fact that he's only 10 years old. Unfortunately, when you have that kind of smarts, trouble is nearly a foregone conclusion! Giant, talking gorillas from other dimensions; drunken, smelly clans of Bigfeet; and a germ-filled monkey looking to cause the next outbreak - these are things that Barry has come to accept as normal. Compared to such frightening childhood rites of passage as girls and the first school dance, Barry would take all three scenarios without blinking. This trade paperback collects the first three issues of Eisner-nominated creator Judd Winick's mini-series and features the debut of Bezeruul, the giant talking ape!

Reviews - What do customers think about The Adventures of Barry Ween Boy Genius 3?
This comic is in a class by itself Dec 3, 2005
Barry's language may come as a shock to certain readers, but if you let that turn you off this book, you're doing yourself a grave disservice. Barry Ween is just about the funniest, most enjoyable read in comics, hands-down.
This collection finds Barry rescuing a giant gorilla from a zoo (at Jeremy's insistance), saving his schoolchums from an Ebola infected lab monkey (and shafting the lab jerks at the same time), and discovering the true culture of the Bigfoot. In each of these cases, Barry (with prodding from Jeremy) acts with compassion while putting himself at great risk, and, as a result, makes a friend in the simian category.
Barry, with his inestimable intelligence and impatience with dirtbags, always goes for the quick and dirty solution to a problem. But Jeremy, with his big heart and quivering lip, is always there to badger Barry into saving the monkey in distress. It is an irresistable combination of personalities, and this book is a worthy addition to the Barry Ween canon. Do yourself a favor, and buy it today!

GO listen to some WEEN, this is a disgrace to the word WEEN
Barry Ween, Friend to Apes Jun 23, 2002
Barry Ween's at it again. Rather, the world around Barry is at it again, and the time has once again come for him to save the day, in one form or another. (It's tough being the world's smartest entity. It's even worse when you're a ten-year-old boy.)
First, Barry finds that the unusually large ape in the local zoo is not entirely what he seems. In the process of finding out exactly what's going on, Jeremy once again commits Barry to a course of action he otherwise would not have followed. But then, that's what Jeremy's there for, right? Once that crisis is averted, Barry must save his family from the terrors of the woods. (Haven't you always wanted to know the truth behind bigfoot?) And if that isn't enough, there's a school dance in Barry's future, and something about an ebola-infected monkey.
As with the rest of the Barry Ween series, this volume has all the craziness surrounding a foul- mouthed, world-dominating, charmingly insecure, arrogant, 10 year old genius and continues to hold on to those solid bits of humanity and sympathy that make Barry such a loveable character.
Barry (and Judd Winick) does it again Jan 16, 2002
Oh man... just when I thought the Barry Ween saga couldn't get any funnier, writer/artist Judd Winick somehow manages the impossible and gets me rollin' on the floor with even bigger fits of laughter than ever before. And I haven't even gotten beyond page four yet! Who knew a hyperactive ten-year-old's intricate & disturbingly gleeful descriptions of a rhino's restroom habits and monkey mating methods could be such an aneurysm-blowing yuk-fest?
Barry's third TPB outing features our titular ten-year-old genius and his slightly-thick sidekick Jeremy getting into all sorts of simian shenanigans. From helping a giant extradimensional gorilla get back home, to saving the `rents from a famished sasquatch, to racing against the clock to capture an ebola-infected lab monkey that crashes the school dance, Bar' and Jer' produce plenty of laughs with their profane banter and the bizarre predicaments they get into. Also included to help lighten the tone are scads of movie references, sex-ed jokes, the funniest take on the `tastes like chicken' cliché I've ever experienced, and other things you shouldn't laugh at, but do anyway!
Fair warning, though- be sure read this in the privacy of your own home. There's nothing worse than getting your hysterical laugh-on at the local comic-book shop and having the other geeks stare at you like you're some kinda weirdo (Now THERE'S a case of the pot callin' the kettle black if I ever saw one)! Trust me on this, I'm speaking from experience! (=)
