Hyperbole and a Half, the brilliant, frenetic, illustrated memoir, tackles sudden depression, its effects and eventual cure in the long awaited new installment.
I spent months shut in my house, surfing the internet on top of a pile of my own dirty laundry which I set on the couch for "just a second" because I experienced a sudden moment of apathy on my way to the washer and couldn't continue. And then, two weeks later, I still hadn't completed that journey. But who cares - it wasn't like I had been showering regularly and sitting on a pile of clothes isn't necessarily uncomfortable. But even if it was, I couldn't feel anything through the self hatred anyway, so it didn't matter. JUST LIKE EVERYTHING ELSE.

Scenes from a Multiverse
, the delightfully weird webcomic from John Rosenberg (creator of the transcendently bizarre Goats
, is now available in book form
. Rosenberg created Scenes
as a more accessible alternative to Goats
, whose convoluted storylines, while immensely entertaining (and mindbending) required quite a commitment to follow. By contrast, Scenes
mostly takes the form of stand-alone one-page scenes from various parallel dimensions (though there are some multi-installment stories that revisit some of the deeper weird beloved by Goats
aficionados). Rosenberg's humor blends science, high weirdness and pop culture in a mix that is not quite like any other, and I could read him all day long. See below for some of my favorite strips from the collection.
