Few writers can make you laugh and even fewer can make you cry while laughing.
When I was in college the Far Side’s Gary Larson (The Complete Far Side) never failed to crack me up.
Of course, Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson (The Complete Calvin and Hobbes) was another cartoon that made me think and sometimes made me laugh so hard I’d cry.
Hyperbole and a Half is a newer cartoon and Allie Brosh is genius. I recently bought her book and like the others I mentioned read them whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed.
