Deconstructing Comics #699: ‘How to Be Happy’

by Erik Amaya

How to be Happy

In this episode Kumar Sivasubramanian (psst, our Eisner nominated member of the Deconstructing Comics team) and Emmet O’Cuana discuss Eleanor Davis‘s comics. Focusing mainly on her collection How To Be Happy and one-shot Libby’s Dad, the comic creator’s use of subtle sadness and surreal humor inspires a wide-ranging conversation (including how to be happy during a plague!).
