If you haven’t been living under a rock and have spent any time on the internet, you’re definitely familiar with this artist, who has been sharing his whimsical and dark ideas in the form of comics for over a decade. If it appears fresh, after reading this post, you will undoubtedly be converted to the fellowship. The creator of the Perry Bible Fellowship comics, Nicholas Gurewitch, isn’t hesitant to tackle important and contentious themes, as well as taboo content, wrapped in dark comedy.
Dark humour is a fantastic method to discuss all of the strange and often bizarre features of our existence. Thinking beyond the box produces clever cartoons with unexpected twisted endings that may make you feel bad for smiling at the end.

Not only are the comics’ ends surprising, but so are the style and characters. One of the things that sets The Perry Bible Fellowship apart is its versatility and variety of artwork. The talented artist has created everything the concept calls for, from simple human figures with few facial traits and intricacy to exquisite watercolour settings, bright cartoons, and realistic multi-panel stories. Gurewitch’s comics feature humans, animals, fanciful and fairy-tale characters, nature, food, and common home and other inanimate objects, keeping us interested with each new strip.
The Perry Bible Fellowship grew out of The Daily Orange, a Syracuse University student newspaper that was the first to publish comics. It included comics by numerous well-known cartoonists, including Vaughn Bode, Brad Anderson, and Robb Armstrong, in addition to Gurewitch’s early work.
“After a brief stint as a journalist for the same newspaper, I began drawing comics for my student newspaper in college. I just enjoy getting others to think about topics in new ways. Sharing perplexity is a mental obsession. Gurewitch told Bored Panda, “Because amazement flourishes there.” Over the years, The Perry Bible Fellowship has gained a cult following of 307k dark humor lovers on Instagram and over 141k followers on Facebook.
The Perry Bible Fellowship has won numerous important accolades, including the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Online Comic in 2005 and 2006. In 2006 and 2007, the Perry Bible Fellowship earned the Web Cartoonist’s Choice Award for outstanding comic for the second year in a row. In addition, the well-known webcomic has won eight Web Cartoonists’ Choice Awards in various categories, as well as the 2007 Harvey Award for “Best Online Comics Work.” “The Trial of Colonel Sweeto and Other Stories,” a collection of funny cartoons, earned an Eisner Award in July 2008.
Dark Horse published a special Almanack 10th anniversary edition collection of Nicholas’s comics earlier this year. It includes every comic strip published between 2004 and 2007, as well as a slew of exclusive comics and drawings that aren’t available anywhere else.
