207 – How to Be Happy

How to Be Happy

Our epic mega Best of 2014 series moves on to Graphic Novels as we discuss Eleanor Davis’ “How to Be Happy.” This collection of short stories, doodles, and ideas is an incredible exploration of self, identity, anxiety, fear, and all the other ways modernity and technology can make us uncomfortable. We discuss each short story in the collection and really have a hard time NOT talking for hours and hours about all the evocative content in this comic. We talked for so long that we even had to skip Fight Night. For more info on past and future shows, hit up www.WelcometoComics.com! Next week’s comic: “Can’t We Talk About Something More Pleasant?” by Roz Chast.
