Team MissMalini

In every relationship, there comes a time where you get very comfortable with your partner and that’s the best place to be in. You can totally be yourself and enjoy the small moments with your partner when it’s the just two of you together. At times, words fail to describe this contentment but there are some talented illustrators who have managed to describe this the best through their webcomics. They show the real side of what couples actually do which makes them very relatable and brings a smile on your face.

1.  Sarah Andersen

Sarah’s Scribbles by Sarah Andersen is best known for her protagonist, Sara, who is portrayed as a real girl with messy hair and big black eyes. The webcomic focuses on adulthood and maturity in the millennial generation. Sarah draws inspiration from her experiences and the people around her. In fact, a lot of her comics borrow instances with her own boyfriend and most of them define what it’s like to be in a long-term relationship. Apart from relationships, the protagonist also deals with social anxiety, laziness and body image issues. She started Sarah’s Scribbles in sophomore year of her college and has become quite popular today. Initially, she began posting them on Tumblr, which gained some amount of attention and thereafter, she started using Instagram and Facebook, making her work even more popular.

2.  EnzoComics

Enzo is a Filipino-Canadian comic artist who started with Cheer Up, Emo Kid a decade ago. Described as a modern take on life, the webcomic series mostly talks about dating and relationships but occasionally has sex, drugs and web designs as the subject as well. The artist draws inspiration from his own experiences in life.

Enzo perfectly describes what it’s like to be in a long-term relationship from illustrating about the weird conversations couples have, to finding their partner’s silly habits endearing.

3. Catana Chetwynd

Catana Chetwynd takes moments from her everyday life with her boyfriend, John, to create a series of web comics, Catana Comics. Even though she describes her life through these illustrations, it feels like you have also been in the same situation. She had no intention of publishing her comics online but John took this step and brought her work to the public eye on Reddit in 2016. Ever since then, her comics have gone viral. These webcomic series are so cute that once you start reading them you just cannot stop!
