Exclusive: No More Tears! Boom Announces New ‘Cyanide & Happiness’ Collection, ‘Stab Factory’
Kris Wilson, Rob DenBleyker, and Dave McElfatric have been producing their daily webcomic Cyanide & Happiness for more than ten years now, which is a pretty staggering accomplishment. Their bleakly cynical humor and proudly simple style has garnered actual millions of readers, and has led to the creation of an empire that includes animation, merchandise, and even a mobile app. Oh, and books. Yes, you can buy it in books!
In fact, ahead of San Diego Comic-Con, Boom Studios has announced the latest Cyanide & Happiness collection, Stab Factory, featuring thirty strips that have never been seen before... until now! Boom has exclusively shared four of the new strips from the collection,, which you can check out below. For the other 26 new strips, you'll probably have to grab the book when it comes out in November.
Here's the publisher's description of the new collection:

With its crudely drawn art and snarky humor, Cyanide & Happiness has touched many a funny bone and is accessible to a legion of fans worldwide.
What It Is: Once again, creators Kris Wilson, Rob DenBleyker, and Dave McElfatrick combine some of their best strips and a host of never-before-seen comics into a new, collected book. In the best, sickest tradition, Cyanide & Happiness’ simply drawn figures and the wildly inappropriate topics they cover—including cannibalism, murder, and incest—is most reminiscent of South Park, but offers a profane sensibility all its own. Includes 30 new strips and the short, Bedtime Stories for Good Children.
