5 Anxiety Vs. Reality Comics That Show How Social Anxiety Screws Up Your Perception Of The World
Jacob Andrews is the creative genius behind For Lack of a Better Comic, who now works as comic artist for CollegeHumor. His comics cover all kinds of topics, from the objectively best and worst feelings in the world, to romantic expectations and sleeping with your partner, Jacob has got you covered with a witty and sometimes dark take on things.
