Laughing at pain is the best way to take power away from it. My therapist disagrees, but I don’t think she laughs at anything. For us normal folks, life is a daily struggle, and the best way to not get all tripped up is to make jokes about it.
That’s what artist J. L. Westover aka Mr. Lovenstein does, and he does it well. He takes most of those dark feelings we know all too intimately and packages them into perfectly worded comics. Let’s all laugh at the pain together.
