“One of my favorite cartoonists in the world right now.” – Dylan Horrocks

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 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 and 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 and Mogg episodes from the past five years as well as over 70 pages of all-new material.

• A
New York Times Best Seller (Hardcover Graphic Books)

“It’s the range of these characters’ emotional register, and the beauty of Hanselmann’s renderings of same, that make his work sting and stick. Watching these themes emerge from a funny-animal gag strip with weed jokes is a bit like seeing the
Locas saga spring forth from the brow of Jaime Hernandez’s old sci-fi stuff.” – Sean T. Collins

“Hanselmann’s team of bitchy fuckups possesses such a well-unbalanced chemistry of neurosis, aggression and nonchalance you just can’t turn away.” – Edie Fake

Dan Clowes

•Author of Ghost World

“Simon Hanselmann is the real deal, for sure. He captures that stoner stay-at-home life so accurately that I actually find his comics really depressing and thank god I don’t ever have to hang out with anybody like that ever again.”

James Kochalka

•Creator of American Elf and Peanutbutter and Jeremy

“These are some of the best comics being made in the world right now, I really think so.”

Publishers Weekly

•Publishing trade magazine

“The story is depressing as often as it is funny, a cautionary tale that’s at its best when Hanselmann spreads his writing wings, extending beyond a gag strip into an honest exploration of his deeply flawed leads.”
