23 Down, 29 To Go (52 Books, 52 Weeks) ("Misery Loves Comedy")

Besides a couple of anthology comics and the logo for Moops Music, I haven't seen much of Ivan Brunetti's work. I had read his Anthology of Graphic Fiction, Cartoons, and True Stories last year, and found it invaluable to a budding comics and graphic novel fan.

Misery Loves Comedy collects the first three issues of Brunetti's legendary comic Schizo along with various other published and unpublished works. I was surprised at how dark the comics were, as well as their humor. I laughed out loud at almost every page at the wonderful mix of lowbrow mixed with highbrow humor. Smart, funny, sacrilegious, and often filled with self-loathing, this graphic novel introduced me to one of my favorite new artists.
