Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Introducing the first real, tangible, ignitable collection of the hit online comic Cyanide & Happiness, featuring a selection of your favorite comics and thirty brand-new strips.

From the minds of Kris, Rob, Matt, and Dave comes a barrage of irreverent entertainment sure to keep you amused until the day you die. Just see what their mothers have to say!

"Dave is a nice, young man with a bright future ahead of him. I always knew he was a gifted boy who would go on to do great things. I hope he settles down with a nice, young woman and ****s the **** out of her."
—Dave's mom

"I don't know how to get computer pictures, so I'm glad Kris finally has a book out. I haven't read it yet, but I hope he gives me a quote on the back."
—Kris's mom

"I hope Robert's book does well so he can finally afford to move out. He plays his hip-hop music too loud."
—Rob's mom

Matt's mom was unavailable for a quote due to being dead.

This book is a collection of strips from the Cyanide & Happiness web comic at explosm dot net. Of course, being a collection, it should be just as good as the original, right?

Well it's BETTER! For some reason they included 30 strips I'd never seen before. Also, the colors are more vivid in the book than they are on my computer monitor. It's very aesthetically pleasing.

They have also included a funny "About the authors" section in the back of the book, with pictures of the authors rendered in their Cyanide & Happiness art styles.

Did i mention it is HILARIOUS???

The creator of Cyanide and Happiness is a filthy sock puppet who destroyed my womb. Five out of five stars.

I've been a fan of [...] for a couple years now. When this book came to US stores, didn't even think about it. Just bought it. I have to say it was worth every penny. It's a really nice collection of their best, funnier comics and some extra book-exclusive comics too. I loved them all :P
Only thing I didn't like is that I had to wait a couple months for it, since it was released in the UK first. And that US doesn't get a hardback edition. Just the paper back one.
The paper back isn't bad, it's actually quite resistant, but hardback would have been a plus and I would have paid the extra couple of bucks for it.

Anyways, great book. Highly recommended if you are fan of [...], if you are not, go to their webpage first, since not everyone likes their comedy (can be offensive). I LOVE IT.

Cyanide and Happiness. Understand this - if you do not like the webcomic, you will not like this book. There is nothing in this book, for the most part, that is not available free on the internet to read on their website. However, this book is the perfect addition to a comic/graphic novel collection, and I LOVE it.

This book is full of webcomics about... nothing... and everything. Yes, they make fun of the crucifixion, boobies, murder, child murder, sex, and everything else. It is meant to be taken lightly, but has very serious undercurrents that require a certain dark humor to appreciate. This comic is NOT for everyone. It is, however, insightful, brilliant, acerbic, and (most importantly) incredibly funny.

Now, for the book itself, it is a paperback book with color drawing. It is 160-something pages or so long, and it recreates comic from the web, while adding a couple new ones. If you have read all the webcomics, though, don't expect a whole lot of new material. The colors stand out well on a semi-gloss paper stock, and the paperback is not flimsy. Certainly, as someone else stated, hardback would have been great, but they did not skimp on the weight/sturdiness of the paperback cover.

Conclusion? If you like the webcomic... GET IT. It is a great addition to any collection and non-webcomic-savvy friends will love you for sharing it with them. If you've never heard of it, go to the website first and test it out to see if it's your brand of humor. It is NOT for everyone. I love it, though. I bought it, no hesitation, and I don't regret it.

When i received the suggested purchase, it seemed right up my alley. But i am very disappointed in the size of this ebook. The pictures are very very small and i have to zoom each individual cartoon to read it. i was hoping it would fill the page on my kindle fire, but it doesn't.

Even for $3 on Kindle, it wasn't worth the price. I like the comic, but their early material isn't good. Many of the comics are repetitive-- running the same joke into the ground. Worse yet, the ~30 "never seen before" comics they mention as an incentive to buy the book were "never seen before" for a reason-- they were terrible. If you like the comic strip, save your money and buy a more recent collection.

Like the authors say in the intro, if you're younger than 15 or older than 50, then you'll likely find something offensive here. I am 46 and have never been offended in my life, but some of what you'll find in "Cyanide's" pages will be in poor taste--but nevertheless clever and amusing all at once.

I read this on my Kindle Fire (non-HD) and frequently had to touch a picture and zoom to read the tiny text in some of the cartoons, which got to be a drag after a while. Nevertheless, an enjoyable albeit brief read.

Anyone who is a fan of the web comic will love this. Anytime some sits on my sofa, I throw it--with force--at their head and demand they read it. This initially causes them displeasure. However, after flipping through a few pages, they turn the corner, proclaim the book as magnificent, and make sweet love to you.
