JAKE THOMPSON | The Book of Onions. Comics to Make You Cry Laughing and Cry Crying
Humor negro y depresión en uno de los webcómics más exitosos de los últimos años.
Ranging from the relatable to the utterly nonsensical and bizarre, The Book of Onions focuses on themes of loneliness, desperation, and failure. And misplaced optimism. And perverted talking fruit. Sort of like Gary Larson’s “The Far Side,” if Gary were way less accomplished and suffered from depression.
|Jake Thompson is a 29-year-old advertising copywriter who lives in Minneapolis. Back in 2015, he created an Instagram feed titled “Jake Likes Onions” to express his strange and depressing sense of humor. Over the course of 2 years, the comic has become one of those viral Internet things that’s shared and followed all over the planet. Pretty cool!
