Hyperbole and a Half: Unfortunate situations, flawed coping mechanisms, mayhem and other things that happened.

5 out of 5 stars

The first thing that comes to mind when thinking about this graphic novel is that it is legitimately funny as fuck.

The second thing is that it is incredibly relevant. Her descriptions of depression are a poignant portrayal of an illness so many people live with everyday. The reactions of people around depressed people who themselves are not depressed was also accurately represented. It shines a blinding light on the subject while also poking fun at it, making it easier for people to absorb. (Both for those who are depressed and recognize the resemblance of their own lives and educating people who may have a depressed loved one in their life.)
