Okay, I'll admit upfront that this comic's pretty gross at times. Also, the language is definitely PG-13. And yet...
The undead, namely zombies and vampires, are a very big theme in pop culture these days, especially in comics. I Feel Sick simultaneously embraces and pokes merciless fun at that fad. Devi is an artist working in, you guessed it, the comic book industry. She has weird friends and disastrous dates. She struggles with the same creative blocks we all do. The narrative is dark but definitely funny.
