"We all have strange, irrational fears from seeing ghosts in the bedroom mirror to being sucked into a mall escalator or finding yourself miles below the ocean s surface on the deck of a sunken ship. In Deep Dark Fears, animator, illustrator, and cartoonist Fran Krause brings these fears to life in 101 vividly illustrated comics inspired by his wildly popular web comic and based on real fears submitted by online readers. Deep Dark Fears explores our gruesome, hilarious, and bizarre anxieties, revealing a primal part of our humanity and highlighting both our idiosyncrasies and our similarities. This devilishly humorous guide explores our drive to experience and share the wonders of the world and the dangers lurking around every corner."

Irrational fears - illustrated. I saw some of my own and was relieved I wasn't the only one! Fun browsing material.

Hilarious! Entertaining! I loved this book - many of the fears noted here were absurd and silly but that's only my opinion and has no bearing on the real fear & panic suffered by the author of the particular fear. the illustrations were wonderful. I wish there were numerous volumes of "Deep Dark Fears" so I could look forward to more.

Hilarious look at, as the title says, "Deep Dark Fears". Everything from mirrors to birthmarks to books to aging (and everything in-between) are examined with charming illustrations. Recommended!

Absolutely loved this book!! Some of the fears I already had and the others... well, I found myself wondering how I have gotten through life so far without worrying about them!!

This great collection of comics actually started as a web comic series and is now collected nicely into book form. The author had random people tell him their dark and odd everyday fears, and then illustrated those fears. The comics are greatly drawn, and you may even find yourself relating to one (or five) of these many everyday fears. I'm hoping there will be a second book, and am hoping I myself can submit my own deep, dark fear.
