Get Ready For Parenting Tips From Cyanide & Happiness

by James Ferguson

Here’s something they don’t tell you at the hospital after a woman gives birth: There are no instructions. They don’t make you pass a test or even check with you, really. They make sure everyone’s healthy and then they kick you and your baby out.

Soon there will finally be a guide to parenting that I can get behind. Boom! Studios and Explosm have partnered up to release Cyanide & Happiness: A Guide to Parenting by Three Guys With No Kids.

Set for release in April 2018, this book is a collection of comic strips and essays by the creators of one of the most popular, longest-running, and hilarious webcomics of all time. Kris Wilson, Rob DenBleyker, and Dave McEflatrick put together everything they know–or don’t know –about parenting through the sick and twisted lens of Cyanide & Happiness comics.

Dave McElfatrick says:

My book is the best book out of all the books. It is about parenting. If you don’t know what that is, ask your mum or dad.

Cyanide & Happiness: A Guide to Parenting by Three Guys With No Kids will feature a Foreword by Chris Grady, the author of Lunarbaboon: The Daily Life of Parenthood. It plans to include crucial tips and sage advice such as finding messages in your alphabet soup, drawing the perfect hand turkey, getting away with kidnapping, telling your kids you don’t love them anymore, and making out with your kid’s best friend’s dad. All crucial information that you should know before having kids.

Bryce Carlson, Managing Editor at BOOM! Studios added:

A girl I knew in college introduced me to Cyanide & Happiness over a decade ago. I’ve since married that girl and spawned a small, delightful manchild while simultaneously acquiring and editing a Cyanide & Happiness parenting book. That, my friends, is the circle of life. It’s also the cosmos telling you to buy this book. Trust me, my parenting skills have reached all-new heights since working on this book, regardless of what that girl I married from college says.

I’ve been a big fan of Cyanide & Happiness for some time. Their card game, Joking Hazard is a huge hit at parties. Since I’m a fan and a parent, this book it tailor made for me. Look for Cyanide & Happiness: A Guide to Parenting by Three Guys With No Kids this April at local comic shops and booksellers like Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and Books-A-Million.
