Artist Create 20 Best Humor Comics That will Boost Your Mood


There is no overarching theme, no neat little concept that truly captures what Speed Bump is all about, confesses Dave Coverly. In other words, if life were a movie, these would be the outtakes, he argues.

The Washington Post, Toronto Globe & Mail, Detroit Free Press, Chicago Tribune, Indianapolis Star, Cleveland Plain Dealer, Cincinnati Enquirer, New Orleans Times-Picayune, St Louis Post-Dispatch, Vancouver Sun, Baltimore Sun, and Arizona Republic are among the publications that have published these discarded photos. “Speed Bump: A Collection of Cartoon Skidmarks” (Andrews McMeel) was published in 2000, and it was the first Speed Bump book. “Speed Bump: Cartoons for Idea People” (2004, ECW Press), which was named Comedy Book of the Year in an Independent Publication by Foreword magazine, and “Just One Percent $ # @ Speed Bump After Another” (2005, ECW Press), which received an honorable mention at the Independent Publisher Book Awards, are two of his most recent books.

Coverly grew raised in Plainwell, Michigan, and began drawing cartoons in 1986 as a student at Eastern Michigan University, when he authored a comic panel for the Eastern Echo called Freen. During this period, he also studied in England, and in 1987, he graduated from EMU with a BA in Philosophy and Imaginative Writing. In graduate school at Indiana University, he continued to draw cartoons, and his panel in the Indiana Daily Student won multiple national prizes. In 1992, he earned a master’s degree in creative writing from Indiana University.
