If you’re in the mood for something completely weird to read, Funhouse could be just for you. The literary title has an abnormal infatuation with the human body, and each issue dissects our physical form through essays, poetry, illustrations and comics.
This third instalment is all about how bodies exist in different spaces, from the teenage family home to a local cafe, and it’s a thrilling, humour-filled, and utterly engaging exploration of our physical selves. See some of the story outlines below, and if you like the sound of it, head over to Sampler to secure your copy for free shipping.

— Poetry on monstrous, cannibalistic boyfriends
— The woes of dating, shown through a comic
— Late night hunger and compulsion
— A brother’s suicide and the poetry of Anne Carson
— And a story of moving house and ending up with the wrong furniture
