Webcomic Hyperbole and a Half may not have been updated since 2011, but it’s still going strong. Without so much as a whisper from its main blog, Hyperbole’s upcoming book adaptation is already at No. 10 on Amazon’s comic bestseller list—and that’s just from preorder sales.
Written by Allie Brosh, Hyperbole and a Half is part blog, part absurdist comic drawn in MS Paint. Even if you haven’t read it, you’ve probably seen its influences online, from the mythical Alot (a monster inspired by the common mistake of spelling “a lot” as a single word) to the phrase “Clean all the things!”
