Reviewed by Weird – The Li’l Depressed Boy Series

Being fairly new to the world of comics outside of the Big Two, there are most certainly comics and stories out there that I’ve missed out on, but I’m doing my best to catch up on.  One of these is the story of Li’l Depressed Boy by my friend Mx. Isabell Struble.  She had an incredible sale on all the volumes that I just couldn’t pass up, and boy am I glad I didn’t!  If you were like me and hadn’t heard of the Li’l Depressed Boy before now, here’s a synopsis:

Li’l Depressed Boy (LDB) is lonely. Routinely retreating behind the walls of his mind and home, into television, books, video games, and self-pity, LDB wants more. He doesn’t want to hold onto the instinct to give up, to find a place to hide, and to keep himself safe through anti-social behavior. The Li’l Depressed Boy is a story about a guy who wants to step outside and find something to live for.

Li'l Depressed Boy

This series was one of the most incredibly relatable, emotional, and just fantastic series I’ve ever read, and that’s not an exaggeration.  This guy who falls in love with girls he’ll never talk to, romanticizing about how the world could be, but being too afraid to go out and take it, is an incredibly relatable story to a lot of people, my younger self included. 

The act of buying people things because you like to see them happy, the utter despair when you think a relationship is going a certain way, and you’re hit with the reality that it’s not, the joy in experiencing in person the things that make you happy, and finding and losing a true love.  By the time it was over, I couldn’t help but wipe a tear from my cheek at this incredible story.

If you can, definitely find and read this incredible series.  It’s so incredibly good and written so well.  I can’t recommend this story enough.
