Top 10 funny comic books

Luke Healy is a cartoonist, comedian and TV writer from Dublin, Ireland.

His newest book is The Con Artist.

At the Guardian Healy tagged ten "books [that] cross all sorts of genres and styles, from memoirs about dark subjects to essay collections about modern dating, to reviews of Steven Spielberg’s 2012 film Warhorse. But the one thing they all have in common is a funny person at their core." One title on the list:
My Dirty Dumb Eyes by Lisa Hanawalt

Hanawalt achieves the rare feat of making her drawings themselves funny. Not only are her thoughts and observations about life and media amusing, but every face, every body, every location she draws is infused with comedy. This collection of short comics includes pieces about food, sex, gender, movies and more. Every page turn brings a new delight, coloured by Hanawalt’s charming and offbeat sensibility.
