In our Friday Favorites a couple weeks ago we shared a great buzzfeed post of 21 Comics that Capture the Frustration of Depression. The list quickly got me thinking about grief (surprise, surprise) and comics about grief. I love Peanuts as much as the next gal, but between Charlie Brown ‘good grief’ cartoons and “5 Stages of [insert anything you can think of] Grief” cartoons all over the web, true grief cartoons make for a tough google search. As our little gift to you today we have compiled some comics about grief that we have seen and loved. (pro-tip: if you get annoyed by the tiny comic print or it is making you feel old, hit [ctrl] [+] at the same time to zoom in your screen)
Paula Knight has so many great comics on the grief of miscarriage, it is hard to choose. Luckily if you visit her site you don’t have to. Make sure to head over there to check out her “It Wasn’t Meant to Be” comic.
This comic was originally posted in a format that goes frame by frame on YTMND.com. You can check out that version here and there is an assembled version below. It is long but worth it!
Ahhh . . . a classic (last 4 comics of a 9 comic series)
There are no words for the incredible comic books by Tom Hart following the death of his daughter, Rosalie. They are a must read. Seriously. Must.
This last Liz Prince comic which isn’t exactly about grief, but if you read along here regularly (or know us in real life) you will probably understand why I couldn’t NOT include this on the list . . .
