Red or orange hardcover darkly funny book about mental illness

I saw a book on a "featured" table last winter in a bookstore, which enchanted me, but I don't remember any of the key features that would allow me to buy it; namely author or title. I remember that it was red or orange, hardcover, consisted (mostly) of illustrations, was darkly funny, was written by a British man (?) and contained cartoony scenarios ruminating on anxiety or depression. Any idea what the book was? I assume that it was a new publication around the end of 2013. I think the title had the word "Brain" in it. [more inside]

Comic flushing out those phonies who are only claiming to have been a reject so others will like them.

Several years ago I saw a webcomic about distinguishing between those who falsely claimed to be unpopular in high school from those who actually were. There was a young female narrator / investigator, maybe identified as the author of the comic but maybe not, who talked about interrogating friends and acquaintances to see how unpopular they really were. I think the last panel showed her writing in a note pad. Anybody remember this? Google is getting me nowhere. I may have stumbled across it by following a link from here, but more likely from a comment than a post.

Self-publishing Comics

I've noticed that most newspaper comic pages are horrendous. What would it take to publish my favorite web / underground comics in a newspaper-like format, and distribute it across my metro area of choice?
