http://explosm.net/comics/2327/ will take you to the web comic Cyanide & Happiness. The comic is a stroll down the dark side of humor. There are no real recurring characters, or at least from what i can tell there aren't. Its just a great comic full of strange perverse humor. Why does this type of web comic work? I must say its riding on some pretty good little gags here and there. Its also got quite a shock factor built in. The visual style is very simple. Thick black lines and flat color make up most of the work. There are at times gruesome depictions of death and mutilation. But because of the simple look of the comic even these things look somewhat inviting. Click on the link to get a nice little bite sized chunk of perversion and cynicism. enjoy.
