Bighead is a graphic novel written and illustrated by Jeffrey Brown and published by Top Shelf Productions. The title character is a superhero whose main power seems to be the fact that he has a giant head. Unlike many of Brown's other graphic novels, Bighead is not an autobiographical work, but rather a parody of classic superhero stories. Bighead fights villains like Heartbroke, who built a doomsday machine after a bad breakup so that he could make the entire world as miserable as he was.

The graphic novel collects all the Bighead stories published as mini comics and one-pagers in other places together with some content that is new to the book.

Bighead was nominated for 2 Ignatz Awards: Best Artist and Best Graphic Novel. Time magazine named Bighead the tenth best comic of 2004.[1]

A spin-off comic, The Incredible Change-Bots, was released in 2007. A sequel book, Sulk, was released in 2012
