16+ Unexpected Comics That Your Dark Side Will Find Hilarious

The Perry Bible Fellowship is one of the funniest webcomics I have come across in a long time. No matter how sure you are of how a comic will end, you will absolutely be surprised by the dark twists and turns that each panel takes.

This is no surprise, considering that the comic is going into its 15th year of being made! I think we can safely say that Nicholas Gurenwitch, the mastermind behind PBF, is a pro.

Gurenwitch describes his style as β€œthe clarity of obscurity,” and I have to say, in my experience of his work, that is pretty spot on.

If you want to see more of his work, check out the The Perry Bible Fellowship website or follow Gurenwitch on Instagram.
