TEN wholly inappropriate examples demonstrating why Cyanide & Happiness is tasteless, cleverly offensive, and always often some pretty funny shit:
A nice intro that sets the stage nicely. I call this one “Birth of a Serial Killer” as this is just the kind of honest parental communication that scars children and helps develop that newsworthy, “let’s go slaughter the diners at a McDonald’s” worldview.

Zombie hygiene…c’mon, what’s not to love.

A classic example of the damage that miscommunicati
Now that was a perfect beginning to the day. Ever since I discovered 9GAG I've been a big fan of rage comics but I had never heard of Cyanide and Happiness before, but I must say, some of their stuff is really funny! My favorite was this one:


And that's just because I fucking love superheroes.

Haha! These comics are spectacular! I am only familiar with one Cyanide and Happiness comic (prior to this) so I was looking forward to reading the book of comic compilations. They were great! I will definitely read the next one!

Here are some of my favorites from this collection:

I don't know what it is about a banana peeing on someone that is so hilarious!

This one is hysterical!

I must say, this book... Pretty damn good. The book jumps into different stories and yes, this book is 81% offensive to women (Yes don't stomp on me please.) Ah this has the be the first book that Kris, Dave, Matt, and Rob actually made since they had a site called "Explosm" which they have been working since 04'-Present and the book is based off there work such as the running on gag "Happy Easter Zombie Jeaus!" and 20 new comics "Too hot for the internet" that are usually based of cancer jokes, ...more

Si bien tienen un dibujo simple, amo estas tiras cómicas. Tienen un humor cruel, sarcástico, irónico, etc. Son muy South Park. Me encantan.
This book made my entire night!
Some of these comics are great, but some of them are just plain horrific. I am sorry, I can't laugh at things that joke about and promote rape culture, or make fun of people with disabilities - So I will have to miss out on the few amusing jokes that occur within the series because so much of the rest of it just promotes everything that is wrong with the world.

Adorable, broadly delineated little characters. Gruesome, highly disturbing situations. Some of the darkest humor out there. Need I say more? I loved it!

Hmmm I guess it's for the Jack Ass generation... see review Aisle B
This book is comic gold. It will keep you laughing and make you want to share it with anyone who will give you the time to listen
Oh, goody. These comics are crass and - as others mentioned - pretty disturbing (the one with the kick to the stomach had me pause for a bit...), and most of the time so ridiculous (as in, how did they even think of that?) - that I couldn't help but laugh.

It's definitely not for those who are easily offended, but definitely is for those who can enjoy some dark humor. It produced quite some snorts and giggles on my part. Oh, and I really like the simplicity of the cover. So, yeah, good one Kris&co!
I don't like the violence, but sometimes it's quite funny (in my place, it's five minutes rules: you can eat it if five minutes hasn't passed)

I loved this. I've liked the web comic since high school. The inly reason I'm giving this four stars is because I expected the never before seen comics to be better and edgier.
Stefano Ottolenghi
I like the jokes from cyanide and happiness and I follow them on a daily basis, but these ones were really just horrible!
I found this book on scribed and decided to give it a try.
Its funny but has some inappropriate content.

Absolute brilliance. A gift from my brother - he knows me so well ;-) very dark humour. Read it immediately.
A great collection of funny Cyanide and Happiness comics.
Some of them were funny. I have read some of these previously on the internet and found them mediocre at the time. Not much has changed since.
Brooke Bradley
It's so wrong, yet I loved it... So funny!
Wow, it took four guys to create this? Yikes.
Tohle prostě nejde nemilovat! :D

Greatest comic book ever!
this book fast paced and very entertaining, it kept me going till the late hours of the night. Reading many of these comics on the original site I still found great interest in re reading all the various comics. Showing many of my friends these comics always made me the life of the party. I would have to be careful though as this book is very controversial and hits some major topics.
These artists are just wrong on so many levels. But if shocking gore and insane ideas interest you, this book keeps them coming in a way that made me literally bend over in pain laughing so hard. As with any book of this type, there are going to be things in here that will offend you. I guarantee it. But I think that is the price of pushing so hard against the envelope of humor.

This book was like a train wreck--I wasn't sure I wanted to read them all, but I could not make myself look away. I read them with a sort of horrid fascination. It is weird to see cute, cute, cute characters but into so many gruesome situations. This is for those out there with a definitely skewed sense of humor; if you are easily offended, pass this one up.

Was able to have two of the cartoonists sign my copy at SxSW. Bizarrely – the (somewhat insane) cartoon strip has been running six years and the cartoonists only met each other for the first time in real life just two years ago.
The Internet takes on yet another industry and wins.
I've always felt that Kris Wilson draws the funniest comics. The others are mostly so-so. But even then, this compilation is only mediocre. Also, I noticed that the comic with the kid drawing on the wall was actually a copy of an old Calvin and Hobbes comic.
I've enjoyed Cyanide & Happiness for a while now, though don't follow it like I used to, so this compilation reminds me why this offensive comic series is so good. It's not all funny and a lot of it is "anti-comedy" but it works. Check it out.

These comic strips are gruesome, politically incorrect, sexist, and abusive towards animals…but the humor is undeniable. I laughed out loud reading many of them. If you take them as the jokes they are, you'll have fun reading this collection.
