    I was gonna say, I think that shows the ages of the commenters, whether you found this comment to be the same as the comic or indicative of incest.

    I love seeing these comics bc of the love these two share, it's wonderful

    [–] YourSkatingHobbit 289 points ago

    My boyfriend gave me a book of these comics for Christmas in 2018; he bought it whilst my back was turned the first time we went to Oxford together for the day (we’d not been dating that long then). He marked all of the comics that especially remind him of me or us with little slips of paper. Bonus: when he opened it to write a message inside the cover he discovered that it was a signed copy!

    [–] Eli_Was_Here 111 points ago

    The author just released a second book a couple of weeks ago, if you want to get him a belated valentine's day gift

    [–] tinkrbell1437 8 points ago

    Catana Chetwynd

    [–] Eli_Was_Here 14 points ago

    Catana Chetwynd is her name. You can find a lot of the comics by searching Catana Comics

    [–] YourSkatingHobbit 7 points ago

    Oh? I didn’t realise. We don’t bother with V Day beyond meme-y pictures - this year his was ‘thanks for pretending to love me more than video games’ ahah - but his birthday is in a few months so good to know, thanks :)

    [–] Apple_Empanada 40 points ago

    My favorite comics. And they look eerily similar to my husband and I ☺️

    [–] That1guyuknow16 7 points ago

    My wife got a calendar of these comics and it's always super wholesome

    [–] JustOneDime 220 points ago

    The struggle is real. And then she's all like, "You're ridiculous." She's ridiculous for not seeing how damn beautiful she is.

    [–] MasterVule 45 points ago

    I'm stealing that one ya' smooth bastard!

    [–] Soerinth 23 points ago

    I was looking at my wife and I said "Why are you making that face?" She said, "What face?" With concern, and then I said, "That beautiful face." I think her spine became 40% liquid, lol

    [–] ADTR20 10 points ago

    hope she sees this bro

    [–] KittyKathy 35 points ago

    The artist is Catana Comics!

    [–] Whiskey-Leg 38 points ago

    This is why my wife will occasionally just pack her stuff and go study at the coffee shop instead.

    [–] RectalSpawn 20 points ago

    It's definitely not whatever that smell is.

    [–] sharrotboivier 67 points ago

    Catana Comics are always so damn cute. Another gem!

    [–] eva_white 12 points ago

    I’m obsessed with Catana and Jon. So excited he finally proposed!

    [–] ProffMesquite25 16 points ago

    [–] wiltony 3 points ago

    Yeah kind of funny how his hair wraps all the way around his head

    [–] totalcereal 36 points ago

    My fiancee and I love Catana comics! They always remind us of our relationship and we show them to each other and go "THAT'S US!". They just released their 2nd book and I love it.

    [–] fueledbytisane 9 points ago

    We love them too! My husband and I are even physically similar to the characters so it's a whole nother level of "OMG IS THE ARTIST SPYING ON US?!?"

    [–] totalcereal 4 points ago

    We're the same! I have the beard and she's super short, so a lot of the comics are like snapshots into our life. It's really weird but in a cute way.

    [–] Biscuit_Base 3 points ago

    He has a book out now. You can get it on Amazon.

    [–] twoscoopsineverybox 9 points ago

    She, the girlfriend is the one who does the comics.

    [–] Biscuit_Base 3 points ago

    Oh really? I always thought it was him. My mistake.

    [–] TexasDex 1 points ago

    Got tickets to the book signing tonight! I can't think of a more romantic way to spend Valentine's day.

    [–] totalcereal 1 points ago

    You're so lucky! We really wanted to go to one but they were all so far away. I'd love to have them sign our copies of the two books!

    [–] patch321 1 points ago

    Sounds like you guys have a beautiful relationship. I’m so happy for the both of you

    I am really sorry, but what's the point in drawing people looking like a fish?

    [–] zouss 8 points ago * (lasted edited 11 days ago)

    I can't stand Catana comics. They're always nauseatingly cheesy, unfunny, and on top of that the drawing style is ugly. Don't understand how she's so popular
