Megahex

Simon Hanselmann

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 GirlMountain 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. Full color illustraions throughout

    Mega Hex is funny, but also pretty fucked up. It revolves around mean spirited pranks, ridiculous party scenarios, constant weed consumption, and depression. The story revolves I laughed when I saw Daniel Clowes’ review on the back, where he says something about being glad he doesn’t have to hang out with anyone like Hanselmann’s protagonists ever again–I felt the same.
