Hyperbole and a Half is a combination of webcomic and blog written by Allie Brosh. Published in , the comic is drawn in Paintbrush and uses an exaggeratedly simple drawing style as an artistic device. It is a retelling of the author's life and includes stories from her childhood as well as the challenges she faces as an adult. Brosh has also expanded the comic into a series of web videos in a similar style, which have been popular. Hyperbole and a Half draws inspiration from " rage comics ," promoting a certain similarity in their shared diction and simple, almost rudimentary art. A number of Brosh's images have, in turn, been repurposed into various memes and rage comic panels. Allie Brosh started her blog "Hyperbole and a Half" in

We're pretty much all familiar with Allie Brosh's comics—if not because someone's emailed or texted us a link to one on a day when life is particularly shitty, then because most every new one she draws goes viral on the internets. Her comics about the topics of respectively dogs and depression are most well known and extremely influential—she particularly explains depression better than anyone—but basically anyone who has ever felt overwhelmed and anxious and depressed with or without being surrounded by manic, slobbery pups will relate to these comics. This book is full color, it's got essays, it's got new stuff, it's got classics. It's a New York Times Bestseller that absolutely deserves to be. Read it before you need it, and then read it again when you're in the midst of the worst parts of life. You must log in to comment. Log in to get emails when Allie Brosh Author has something new.
We dare you not to. Because I wrote it, I had to figure out what to put on the back cover to explain what it is. Perhaps I have underestimated my sneakiness! The adventures she recounts are mostly inside her head, where we hear and see the kind of inner thoughts most of us are too timid to let out in public. It is no hyperbole to say I love her approach—looking, listening, and describing with the observational skills of a scientist, the creativity of an artist, and the wit of a comedian.
