About Think Before You Think

Think Before You Think is a webcomic written and drawn by Sylvia Odhner. You can contact me at The comic updates every Friday, no exceptions. The content will never exceed a PG-13 rating.

Think Before You Think is 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. It is somewhat spontaneous - I only know what happens as far as I've written the scripts. To get up to date on the storyline, visit the plot map of spoilers.

Potentially triggering themes so far: suicide, car accident, verbal abuse, BDSM, sexual assault.

This comic started on June 12th, 2009, on Smack Jeeves. In February 2011, it moved to the Spider Forest collective, where it currently resides.


Initial Characters:
Brian: the main character. He works in a coffee shop and he can read minds.

Julia: often referred to as Jules, a self-conscious college student.

Becky: Julia's dorm roommate.

My Other Comics

Hanklerfish Comic - This is the comic I started most recently. It lives on Tumblr, and it's a Vlogbrothers fan comic. I update it when I feel inspired to.

Lifehouse: Behind the Video Blogs (no longer active) - This was the first comic I published on the web, no longer updating. It's a fan comic about my favorite band, Lifehouse. This is the comic that inspired me to get into webcomic making, and brought me some amazing fan experiences. Lifehouse lists the comic on their official websites.

The Adventures of Anna Glenn and Her Pet Ethan (no longer active) - This was the first comic I drew (before Lifehouse BVB). It's about my friend Anna and her brother Ethan, who, in the comic, is a mini person and her pet. It was kind of random.
