Cyanide & Happiness is back!

You hold in your grubby mitts the second collection from the hit online comic that was created by a quartet of depraved, inappropriate twentysomethings from all four corners of the world, and which has been compared to Family Circus by both the seeing and mentally impaired communities.

Bigger, bolder, and badder than ever before, this book in

What a strange collection of comic strips.

Correction: What a strange comic strip.

A couple of them were funny. The rest were what I call "boy humor". Not 'male' and not 'man' because those require at least some level of sophistication. These were random and sometimes gross and just... not funny.

Clearly I am not part of the target demographic.

Oh..my..God..
I'm not sure if I've ever read a more perverted, graphic, horribly ironic comic strip in my life..and I loved it! XD
Okay yeah, it was intense at times, but it's so worth the damage to your innocence!
It took me about an hour, probably less to read it cover to cover.

This was my first exposure to Cyanide & Happiness, apart from a couple of online comics. I laughed out loud several times and that's a good thing. The gags did start to wear thin or maybe they were less funny in the second half of the book. An enjoyable read.

This is one of those books that I feel horrible about laughing through, but they really do manage to be funny within their over-the-top crassness and disgusting topics. The simple art style of Cyanide & Happiness abets the horror you would normally feel at their approach to some of the topics; and even so there were a couple strips in here that went 'too far' for me, although I kept reading. Not for the easily offended, and possibly not even for the moderately offended. But if you're able to ...more

If you've ever read Cyanide and Happiness' comics online then you already know how morbid/crude their work is. Nevertheless, these comics will make anyone with a very open sense of humor chuckle and keep turning the page to read the next one. This took me no longer than half an hour to read and I'm hoping to find more of these little collections to read soon.

I enjoyed this for the simple fact its funny and its not a complicated read. You can put it down and pick it up whenever. It was a great pass time while in the lou :P
***Dave Hill
The new collection of "Cyanide and Happiness" comics does just what you would expect it to do (if you read the webcomic) - shock you into submission with its dark, twisted, vile, unexpected (or simply scatological or gross or even just merely depressing) endings to what seem like normal comic strip setups. There's nothing in here you'd probably want your grandmother to read, unless you already know she likes the strip, which reads like Gary Larson on a mean drunk bender.

To be honest, reading the

Wow! This is by far the best comic book strip I have read since Garfield's comic book strips. It was a very hilarious and amusing read. This book is not appropriate for kids at all. It has that adult humor that makes you die in laughter. A great read, it took me a little over an hour to finish because I read it at work but it was so good. This is something you can read over and over again.

a great if not completely disturbing read! this is a collection (second volume) of the webcomic cyanide and happiness, written by four twenty-somethings with some pretty messed up senses of humor! all in all this is a great read if you aren't easily offended...i give this fair warning...if you are easily offended, steer far away from this. for the rest of us, a great and incredibly funny read!
Brandin
This is a collection of some of their comics and it's as funny in print as it is on the internet. If you've enjoyed their antics online I absolutely recommend this book. The one thing that sets it apart is that there are even little "Activities" in the back like a connect the dots with only two dots and other silly yet amusing things. Definitely worth the money.

a hilarious christmas gift from the lovely ms. jones. technically a web comic collection rather than a graphic novel- you can open it at any page and read a couple for a quick giggle. actually, giggle isn't right- more of an evil maniacal cackle. gross, violent, sacridelicious fun.

Off the beaten track, I know. However, there is still a fascinating (and ongoing) backstory on how these artists reached the success that they have. This is the work they produce… dark, funny (in a Monty Python way) and yet more proof that the internet works for art.

This book has a funnier selection of comics I think (by all the authors, not just Kris Wilson) but I still couldn't make myself give it 4 stars. I think I like reading the comics one by one on the web rather than a compilation by someone else.

Most of the comics included I had already seen online, but I enjoyed the bit at the end and the comics I hadn't already read. I still didn't enjoy re-reading some old favourites though. Definitely worth the money paid for it.

Something in case you want to feel bad about laughing about something. I'll still enjoy this when I'm 80 and mumbling to myself about all the disputes I lost because, "he just wouldn't listen."

More comics, just as funny as the first volume. I love reading these in this format, as opposed to single panels on a webpage. There are some funny puzzles at the end of the book as an added bonus.
Adriana
Sometimes really funny, sometimes goes too far, and sometimes it completely misses the mark.
Still, an entertaining read if you want to have the strips from the website in print form.

So hilarious!!!!!!!!! I think Volume 1 was a tiny bit better but still made me laugh out loud like I have never had before. Except for when I read Volume 1. HA.

Everytime I laugh at one of their jokes I feel bad. Can easily offend people (rape, suicide, abortion, etc. jokes)? Not to be taken seriously.

Crude but Happy. Typical C&H. Though I wish they'd produce all their comics, even the unfunny ones just for a collector's sake.

For fans of terrible puns and violent dark humor. Not for the easily offended. I laugh from front to back.
