BOOM!Box to Collect ‘Cyanide & Happiness’ in Trade Paperback Series

One of the most well known and shared comics online, Cyanide and Happiness will make the leap to print in August thanks to Boom’s BOOM!Box imprint. Created almost ten years ago, the strip sees hundreds of thousands of views every day, and is one of the most notable webcomics in the short history of the internet.

Created by Rob DenBleyker, Kris Wilson, Dave McElfatrick, and Matt Melvin, the collection will also feature more than 30 previously unpublished strips – the series is known for being oftentimes edgy and uncomfortable, so it’s to be expected that some of them were pulled before they saw print.

This isn’t the first time the stick-men figures who make up the series have come to print, however – a few years back an imprint of HarperCollins started collecting the series. But this does mark perhaps a more long-term plan to bring all the stories to print, as BOOM!Box seek to broaden and expand their promise to spotlight webcomics and the people who make them.

Titled ‘Cyanide & Happiness: Punching Zoo’, the first trade will be out in August.
