Web Comic: Cyanide and Happiness

Cyanide & Happiness is a daily webcomic strip at It was begun by Kris Wilson originally, but after showing his work to some members on the forum several others joined in the fun: Matt Melvin, Rob DenBleyker and Dave McElfatrick. They have no shame in exploiting extreme Black Comedy, Literal-Minded-ness and affinities for the most hilariously controversially awkward situations known to webcomickind. Their comics involve the exploitation of simply-drawn stick figures for all they're worth.

Dark, cynical, offensive, irreverent... and we're just getting started.

In 2013, the creators announced that they want to make this comic and series of shorts into a web series with 24-minute-long episodes, preferrably to be picked up by an online channel. Years prior, they pitched to 3 television networks, but none lasted, and they eventually realized that TV won't allow them to create the kind of show they want. They started a Kickstarter campaign for the series, which is currently their highest grossing campaign for an animated project ever.
