You may be familiar with the title Cyanide & Happiness because it is one of the most popular and successful webcomics out there. Well, do I have good news for you. BOOM! Box, an imprint of award-winning publisher BOOM! Studios, is releasing their second C&H trade paperback entitled Cyanide & Happiness: Stab Factory. From creators Kris Wilson, Rob DenBleyker, and Dave McElfatrick, the book contains a hand-picked collection of strips that have run on their site, explosm.net, the short Bedtime Stories for Good Children, and also features the debut of 30, bonus, never-before-seen comics .
Cyanide & Happiness consistently offers a humorous, tongue-in-cheek look at life in the form of stick figures. Generating over a million hits a week, the webcomic is one of the longest-lasting strips on the internet, attracting fans with its controversial nature, dark humor, and funny depictions of seemingly inappropriate topics. I tend to not see all that many webcomics, and even I have stumbled upon many of these. The simplistic design is honestly such a draw, and is a great demonstration that you can have a really entertaining comic without a complex art style.
Cyanide & Happiness: Stab Factory will arrive in comic shops this November, and if you're interested in the first volume that's called Cyanide & Happiness: Punching Zoo. Be sure to check it out. It's sure to bring a smile to your face.
