Vending Machines Kill 2.18 People a Year—That’s Fucked Up!
Known for its dark humor and gross exaggerations, A Lunatic’s Tale is a webcomic about Flint and Zinc as they stumble upon murder scenes, government conspiracies, and supernatural phenomenons. It’s too bad no one believes them.
Each member of the main cast suffers from mental illness, including depression, PTSD, anorexia, and more. While A Lunatic’s Tale‘s story and situations are ridiculous, mental health is important. By being frank about the problems mentally ill people face and showing their symptoms, this comic aims to reduce social stigma and encourage those who suffer from mental illness to get the help they deserve.
It gets better, but you have to take that first step. Remember, drugs are what the cool kids are doing.*

For Those Who Read the Original
Where the hell have you been?
Apparently, I had an untreated anxiety disorder this whole time! Now that I’m properly medicated, I don’t feel that plague of inadequacy anymore.
Why are you doing a reboot?
While I was away, I honed my art and writing skills. I feel that I can do the story justice now, especially compared to when I started in 2007.
Anything else you’d like to say?
Yeah. Get medicated if you need it. The social stigma of mental illness is bullshit.
