This was a sad midnight toilet read for me. I liked feeling sad because, honestly, I don't often. Stressed, angry, overwhelmed? Sure. But not sad. These are genuinely sad, unfunny comics. It delivers what the title promises. I want more.

The introduction to this collection of comics say it best. "For me, depressing comics are just the opposite. Sure, sad moments can hurt, but any time we can glimpse what hurts, we can heal it too. After all, the human experience is about learning, and learning is another path to loving. So, don't think of these comics as a gateway to depression. Think of them as a backdoor to happiness."

In a way, especially with the ps note that is attached to this intro, it's easy to realize that it's laced wi

I love things that make you laugh at things you don't want to laugh at, and Cyanide and Happiness's comics basically are created to do just that. Then they made the Depressing Comic Book. I had to get it, that is just my humor. I was not disappointed. Definitely some strips aren't as good as the others, and some strips are a little more serious than the others (after all it isn't called "Funny Depressing Comic Book"). Some people might say I'm a horrible person for laughing at these comic strips ...more

I'm a fan of Cyanide & Happiness and I can truthfully say that the Depressing Comic Weeks contain my favorite strips.

When I first opened the book and saw that it was divided into sections from least depressing to most depressing, I thought "Yeah, right. Whatever." Flash forward to when I finished the book. I thought "They really weren't kidding around."

The creators of this Internet comic warn you that these comics are depressing......and they didn't lie. About a quarter of them were good macabre humor, but the rest ranged from o.k to not funny to wrong on so many levels. I recommend that all depressed and suicidal persons AVOID this book like the plague.

There were some pretty depressing comics in there, but overall, I wasn't bummed out to the point where I felt like crying and couldn't take it anymore. Disappointed in that respect...but you can only do so much with that kind of subject matter, right? Or I'm just seriously disturbed. *Shrugs*

Terrible taste as usual, but when some of these jokes land they're downright hilarious. Unfortunately the effort involved in grouping these 'depressing' comics leaves a lot of them landing flat. Don't stop here if this is your first exposure - these strips are usually more well rounded!
