    This is one unpleasant book to read, almost unreadable at times, but I powered through because I knew he was documenting a Dark Night of The Soul And you never know when yours will come Schulz is the nom de plume of Ken Dahl, whose Monsters, about his struggles with herpes, I found also almost unreadable, but I thought it was well done, given the uncomfortable topic And you have to give a guy credit for opening up his chest cavity and his brain and baring all These are not books that make th This is one unpleasant book to read, almost unreadable at times, but I powered through because I knew he was documenting a Dark Night of The Soul And you never know when yours will come Schulz is the nom de plume of Ken Dahl, whose Monsters, about his struggles with herpes, I found also almost unreadable, but I thought it was well done, given the uncomfortable topic And you have to give a guy credit for opening up his chest cavity and his brain and baring all These are not books that make the author look a bit better than they are Quite the opposite in their searing honesty.Sick is the collection of his web comic of the same name, about a 15 day near death illness Schulz Dahl is consistently honest that he is not the nicest person to be around even when he is well, but in this story you get amazing dark dark art and searing poetic prose documenting the madness and despair that can accompany illness Dahl already is unhappy with the state of the world, as many of us are, but if you are very very sick, maybe your political despair intensifies Or his does I have never been that sick, knock on wood, so I can only speak for what I have read I have a dark side, hidden much of the time, but I fear it would emerge if I ever got very sick as he was.The art from Schulz Dahl is hard to view, but amazing at capturing all aspects of this sickness, and at showing us at its worst that physical illness is sometimes inextricable from psychic illness, from psychological illness, triggering rage and despair As Schulz rages against the world we are politically in Hunter Thompson territory, and the gonzo mad art of Ralph Steadman, and the angry crazy most extreme work of Robert Crumb Surreal in places So can I recommend it Schulz Dahl says Not recommended for children or the self satisfied Self satisfied he is not, though in the end, he comes out of the bitter hole he is to a somewhat not wholly better place Not for the faint hearted, for sure I didn t like it but I can honestly say I admire its dark honesty Many many of us are or will get sick But if and when I get sick, I hope I never get to that place he describes for us

    Grossest graphic novel I have ever read But reads like poetry Totally depressing and so truthful it hurts

    What begins as a personal account of seemingly transitory illness turns into abarbed indictment of contemporary culture And the artstandout

    Okthis is going to be tricky this is a very honest book, and I always respect that I think that as you get older you start to appreciate honesty telling the truth even if you don t want to hear it is so rare Let me add this is truth as Gabby Schulz sees truth Having said the following I have to say that this is the most nihilistic GN I have ever read The conclusions that the book draws would depress Samuel Beckett If Robert Crumb and Hieronymus Bosch were to decide to draw a b Okthis is going to be tricky this is a very honest book, and I always respect that I think that as you get older you start to appreciate honesty telling the truth even if you don t want to hear it is so rare Let me add this is truth as Gabby Schulz sees truth Having said the following I have to say that this is the most nihilistic GN I have ever read The conclusions that the book draws would depress Samuel Beckett If Robert Crumb and Hieronymus Bosch were to decide to draw a book written by Arthur Schopenhauer this would come close This book will offend many peoplebut it is one persons honest evaluation of life

    I have a feeling some people will be upset with the utter bleakness of this book, but in all honesty I found it strangely beautiful Schulz s Monsters was similarly devastating, but it was tempered with a fair amount of humor Although Sick does have some humor peeking through here and there, it s not enough to balance out the decidedly dark tone To be fair, these are some pretty dark times The political climate is extremely hostile, the economic disparity is unparalleled, we seem to be ki I have a feeling some people will be upset with the utter bleakness of this book, but in all honesty I found it strangely beautiful Schulz s Monsters was similarly devastating, but it was tempered with a fair amount of humor Although Sick does have some humor peeking through here and there, it s not enough to balance out the decidedly dark tone To be fair, these are some pretty dark times The political climate is extremely hostile, the economic disparity is unparalleled, we seem to be killing the planet we live on Schulz is never shy about voicing his disgust with the world, and his 15 day near death illness chronicled in Sick does nothing to alleviate these feelings If anything, it breaks down any pretense of putting on a good front and allows him to spew his deepest, darkest resentments and fears It s not often you come across something so raw and honest, and the gorgeously visceral ink watercolor drawings throughout had me in awe I followed the original format when it he posted it online, but this is a completely reworked and somehow improved version I can t recommend this one enough if you have the stomach for it I sincerely hope Gabby got some Obamacare health insurance like me It s terrifying not having access to health care

    The author gets sick and spends fifteen days enduring bloody diarrhea then turns the experience into this book, a sort of bloody diarrhea of the mind Chock full of the existential questions that are brought on by a near death experience or midlife crisis, SICK isn t bad but is certainly relentlessly negative and maybe even pointless as the author himself admits near the end Maybe I ve failed at explaining myself Maybe there are no words to describe what no one wants to hear And if you do un The author gets sick and spends fifteen days enduring bloody diarrhea then turns the experience into this book, a sort of bloody diarrhea of the mind Chock full of the existential questions that are brought on by a near death experience or midlife crisis, SICK isn t bad but is certainly relentlessly negative and maybe even pointless as the author himself admits near the end Maybe I ve failed at explaining myself Maybe there are no words to describe what no one wants to hear And if you do understand me how does that help us

    The art is beautiful, the artist does a fantastic job of explaining why someone wouldn t go to the doctor, and gets his point through that healthcare does desperately have a long way to go to improve.However, this book is negative to an almost pointless degree even after the fact I don t think that all work needs to be positive despite challenges, and if he had a chronic or terminal illness or both I d besympathetic Evidence would say the author clearly is still in agony over this even The art is beautiful, the artist does a fantastic job of explaining why someone wouldn t go to the doctor, and gets his point through that healthcare does desperately have a long way to go to improve.However, this book is negative to an almost pointless degree even after the fact I don t think that all work needs to be positive despite challenges, and if he had a chronic or terminal illness or both I d besympathetic Evidence would say the author clearly is still in agony over this event and needs to work through that, but writing the book didn t accomplish that based on what I saw here I hope that happens for his sake
