“[Hanselmann’s work] is an astoundingly well-crafted and punishingly heartfelt depiction of mental illness and codependence, one that also manages to make you laugh uncomfortably at the horrible decisions made by the characters you’re watching.” — Vulture
“Readers struggling with their own demons will find [Hanselmann’s work] chillingly real.” — Publishers Weekly
“These are simultaneously some of the meanest and most tender comics you will ever read.” — Seattle Weekly
Fantagraphics exclusive: Get Minihex, a collection of rare, controversial and previously unpublished work packaged in a full-color mini comic. Free with purchase of Megahex or Megg & Mogg in Amsterdam.
Megg is a depressed, drug-addicted witch. Mogg is her black cat. Their friend, Owl, is an anthropomorphized owl. They hang out a lot with wild card Werewolf Jones. This may sound like a pure stoner comedy, but it transcends the genre: these characters struggle unsuccessfully to come to grips with their depression, drug use, sexuality, poverty, lack of work, lack of ambition, and their complex feelings about each other in ways that have made Megg & Mogg sensations on Hanselmann's Girl Mountain Tumblr. This is the first collection of Hanselmann's work, freed from its cumbersome Internet prison, and sure to be one of the most talked about graphic novels of 2014, featuring all of the "classic" Megg & Mogg episodes from the past five years as well as over 70 pages of all-new material.
