20+ Hilarious Comics For Everyone Who Love Dark Humor (New Pics)

Published 12 months ago

Mr. Lovenstein (real name J. L. Westover) is a comic artist who creates comics that are “Sad and pathetic, but in a funny way.” He has been creating them for eight years now and we simply can’t get enough!

In an interview with Bored Panda, the artist said “We seek laughter when we’re suffering,” and through his comics, he aims to explore that suffering and isolate what’s so funny about it. “Why do we find cringe funny? Why do bad movies make us laugh?” asks Westover. He says he finds life to be utterly absurd and that it takes little effort to show that absurdity. Although the artist doesn’t ridicule groups just for their beliefs: “I steer clear of racism, sexism, and any other evil ism’s out there. There’s enough hate in the world.”

Westover says the most gratifying part of creating is when someone resonates with his work: “It’s hard to speak for my audience, but I think they’re overall lovers of comedy. I could get all philosophical and introspective, but above all else I make jokes and people like to laugh. Maybe if you scratch below the surface, some are drawn to the tinge of sadness, the absurdism, and the utter silliness of it all.”

We featured some Mr. Lovenstein comics before, now check out more in the gallery below!

One day this guy just kind of figured "I spend most of my time on the internet anyway, why not turn it into a profession?" - and he did! Now he not only gets to browse the latest cat videos and fresh memes every day but also shares them with people all over the world, making sure they stay up to date with everything that's trending around the web. Something that always peeks his interests is old technology, literature and all sorts of odd vintage goodness so if you find something that's too bizarre not to share, make sure to hit him up!

Got wisdom to pour?
