What at first glance reads like an episodic stoner comedy slowly reveals a chiseled character study of suburban ennui to rival the works of Solondz, Groening, or Flaubert. Hanselmann's characterization and visual creativity mines lifetimes of pathos from the slapstick simplicity of its psychedelic, absurdist premise. You will believe an Owl can cry.
Collecting all of Hanselmann's classic Megg & Mogg webcomics plus over 70 pages of new material.
