19 Comics Full Of Dark Humour And Unexpected Twists

comics

Silence speaks louder than words. The phrase has never held more true than it does in David Daneman’s comic series The DaneMen. The Montreal-based graphic designer creates these illustrations in which no-one speaks and everyone looks the same, and still manages to convey a powerful message.

Daneman’s tried his hand at several different things: studying film at the University of Kansas, teaching English in South Korea, and studying graphic design at Vancouver Community College. However, his true passion lies in drawing comics. And the technique he uses is very unusual and quite complex. He starts by taking photographs of himself and proceeds by tracing the image with a photo editor. Finally, he turns the drawing into a comic. The result is amazing: the characters are so lifelike with natural and believable facial expressions, and the absence of the speech bubbles, the defining trait of comic books everywhere, adds yet another unique aspect to Daneman’s work.

His comics often have darker undertones, but they never fail to evoke a chuckle with their unexpected twists. Here are 19 comics from The DaneMen series, compiled by Bored Panda.
