These came about because I was sick of seeing wholly upbeat, positive comics that basically give the message “Only think positive”. To me, that seems like such a bad way to cope with the world. By ignoring your sadness, the negative, you’re only half of a person. You need to embrace them both, and thus “Happy Comic” was born out of spite. So, if you ever felt like my work was too dark and depressing, boy do I have a new comic strip to you!
