How do I begin to describe the surreal, gut-bustingly funny, and all-too relatable humor of cartoonist Nick Sumida? A storyboard artist on the Nickelodeon children’s show Harvey Beaks, Sumida’s personal comics (collected under the title Snackies) are certainly targeted towards a very different demographic. The polar opposite of the idyllic and sweet Harvey Beaks, Sumida’s absurdist autobiographical comics are wrought with anxiety, self-deprecation, and nightmarish charm.

Most casual comics readers probably won’t recognize the name Boulet, the alias used by cartoonist and comics creator Gilles Roussel. But if you’ve ever wandered through a Small Press convention or Artist’s Alley, you are sure to have seen his work. Boulet has made a name for himself as a comics veteran, known for his fun and exaggerated illustration style and a wild unrestrained imagination. His comics range between science-fiction, autobiographical humor, wistful self-recollection, to straight-up flights of fancy and wish-fulfillment. In addition, he often uploads book illustrations and highly detailed fan art of various media (including the works of Terry Pratchett and several anime).
