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

Published 8 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!
