About Think Before You Think

Think Before You Think is a completed webcomic written and drawn by Sylvia Odhner, about a relatively normal world. The only difference is that one of the characters, Brian, can read other people's thoughts. This comic starts out exploring how other people deal with the fact that he can read minds when they know about it.

The content is PG-13.

Potentially triggering themes: suicide, car accident, verbal and emotional abuse, BDSM, sexual assault, mass murder.

For the majority of its active life, this comic was part of the Spider Forest collective.
