About Hyperbole and a Half

Hyperbole and a Half is a combination of web comic and blog written by Allie Brosh. The comic is drawn in Paintbrush and is intentionally artistically crude. It is a retelling of her life, and includes stories from her childhood as well as the challenges she faces as an adult. Brosh has also expanded the comic into a series of web videos in a similar style, which have been popular. Hyperbole and a Half draws inspiration from 'rage comics', promoting a certain similarity in their shared diction and simple, crude art. In addition to the influence rage comics provide, a number of Brosh's images have, in turn, been repurposed into various memes and rage comic panels.
