J. L. Westover aka Mr. Lovenstein describes his comics as "Sad, pathetic, and sarcastic but in a funny way." He will be celebrating eight years of running this show this year, and you should honor it, too.

The artist said that he's interested in the ways we find humor in things that generally cause us a lot of stress and pain for his funny comics. "We seek laughter when we’re suffering," he told Bored Panda. "I like to explore that suffering and isolate what’s so damn funny about it. Why do we find cringe funny? Why do bad movies make us laugh? I also find life to be utterly absurd and you can show how absurd it is with minimal effort."

There are, however, themes you won't come across in Mr. Lovenstein dark humor comics. Specifically, anything that isolates a group to ridicule them. "I steer clear of racism, sexism, and any other evil ism's out there. There's enough hate in the world."

"When someone resonates with my work, it's perhaps the single most gratifying part of creating anything," the artist added. "It’s hard to speak for my audience, but I think they’re overall lovers of black comedy. I could get all philosophical and introspective, but above all else I make jokes, and people like to laugh. Maybe if you scratch below the surface of these morbid jokes, some are drawn to the tinge of sadness, the absurdism, and the utter silliness of it all."

The pressure to create something new and good on a regular basis, and being broke are a few things that Mr. Lovenstein has to fight against constantly, but let's hope he continues his quest, producing many more stories filled with his dark sense of humor. Scroll down to check out his newest work, and if you fancy, take a look at his older comics and dark humor memes as well.

This one makes me imagine Clark Kent's job interview before he became a journalist. Actually, now I want a Superman series spin off about the part of his life when he was unemployed and struggling.

I know some older friends who started their relationship based off of my friend telling the girl that he was bringing tacos. Years later they got married and are doing well. He actually didn’t bring tacos but they fell in love in exchange.
