2 thoughts on “depression comix #37

  1. This strip was inspired by a recent post on my tumblr blog. I really resent the notion that people who are depressed actually chose their disease. The idea that people actually would want to have depression is preposterous.
    My original story board sketch had a very different beginning, where the character was in a game show and had to choose between a lifetime’s worth of happiness or a lifetime’s worth of misery. “I’ll take the misery, Bob” he says. It was a little too complex for a four panel comic, but I like the idea that misery could be interpreted as a prize rather than a punishment.
