Cyanide & Happiness: Volume 1

This is my first time reviewing comics here, but I’m VERY excited about this. Cyanide & Happiness is my favorite comic. Sadly, it’s not like it’s in the daily newspaper – but there’s a new comic almost daily on the website here. It features relatively crude stick figures, and never really any one main character. But the comics are absolutely HYSTERICAL. They are also mean, rude, offensive, dark, cynical… they’re for people with a pretty twisted sense of humor. Which means they’re right up my alley. If you like dark humor, this is for you.

This is the FIRST collection of Cyanide & Happiness comics in book form. I finally bought it at Borders last night, and read through it just now sitting at the table. It’s SO FUNNY. Like, I laughed out loud, and kept telling the honeyman about different particularly funny ones while he’s trying to play the video game. There are four authors to this collection of comics, though according to Wikipedia there are five authors of the comic online. I’m not sure why only four contributed here, but whatevs.

Also, these comic authors are unique in that they actually encourage showing off their comics on your blog, Myspace, Twitter, etc. Each daily comic has a little “Share” button at the bottom so that people can display them. I’m going to take advantage of that and give you a little taste here. Some of them might be kind of graphic, tasteless, or offensive but you know… they’re hilarious.

I tried not to post ones that were TOO graphic…

Anyways, these comics are hilarious. Check it out on their website, or next time you’re in Borders or Barnes & Noble, go to the humor section and look for Cyanide & Happiness, or their second book Ice Cream & Sadness.

  1. >Cyanide and Happiness!!! Oh I love it. But then I have a twisted sense of humor. I also love the web comic Questionable Content. It's 20 something hipster friends but it's snarky and a little twisted, but not as crudely drawn after the first hundred or so. Excellent choice.
