6 Comics to Read on Instagram

This post originally appeared on Panels, which is now Book Riot Comics

Do you love Instagram as much as I do? Unlike most social networks, which can be fun but can also be frustrating, Instagram is a go-to stress reliever for me. We’ve talked before about comic artists to follow on Instagram, but what about comics themselves? There are artists that publish comics to Instagram regularly, and you should follow them and see what they’re doing!

(1) Poorly Drawn Lines – Reza Farazmand

I was absolutely obsessed with the print version of this comic, so imagine my delight when I discovered that Farazmand publishes new comics on Instagram regularly. His comics are absurd and absolutely hilarious.


(2) Introvert Doodles – Marzi

I love Marzi’s depictions of what it’s like to be an introvert. They’re funny and poignant, and while they don’t always apply to me (unlike many introverts, I don’t have social anxiety), they’re so much fun to read.

(3) Comics by Buzzfeed

This Instagram account is run by Buzzfeed and has a few different comic artists who contribute to it. I love the variety on the account.

(4) Deep Dark Fears – Fran Krause

The comics on this account are weird, sometimes creepy, and provide a peek into the mind of a worrier. They’re pretty brilliant.

(5) Cyanide & Happiness by Rob DenBleyker, Kris Wilson, and Dave McElfatrick

I love whimsical comics with simple art.

(6) Insta-Chaz by Chaz Hutton

These painfully true charts and graphs are also incredibly funny.
