Internet junkies have found reason to turn back to turning pages with the release of Cyanide and Happiness, a book containing loads of comics from the web series on explosm.net.

The web comic has run daily since 2004, catering to the crude-humored teen and young-hearted adult. The new book bears a disclaimer on the back cover, warning that anyone under 15 or over 25 may find the content offensive.

What entices regular readers to the book is the addition of 30 never-before displayed comics that will not be featured on the web. A physical copy is also a great way to create new fans for the artists.

All four comic artists only met in 2009, living thousands of miles from each other. Kris Wilson, Matt Melvin, and Dave Elfatrick reside in different corners of the US, while Rob Den Bleyker writes all the way from Ireland. Kris resides nearest to us, in a cozy little town in Wyoming.

With an open mind and appreciation for twisted humor, anyone can enjoy this newly-published masterpiece. Barnes and Noble will soon be filled with pale, sunken-eyed fans eager to taste new jokes.
