Soppy: A Love Story by Philippa Rice

Author; Philippa Rice
Publisher; Andrews McMeel Publishing
Publication Date; Dec 2nd 2014
Description;  "The next hot ticket could be British artist Philippa Rice, whose marvelously inventive blogs My Cardboard Life and Soppy have won her fans across the world."
 --Anna Baddeley, The Observer

 The wildly popular web comic SOPPY--with more than half a million notes on Tumblr--is the illustrated love story of author Philippa Rice and her real-life boyfriend. True love isn't always about the big romantic gestures. Sometimes it's about sympathizing with someone whose tea has gone cold or reading together and sharing a quilt. When two people move in together, it soon becomes apparent that the little things mean an awful lot. The throwaway moments in life become meaningful when you spend them in the company of someone you love.

SOPPY is Philippa Rice's collection of comics and illustrations based on real-life moments with her boyfriend. From grocery shopping to silly arguments and snuggling in front of the television, SOPPY captures the universal experience of sharing a life together, and celebrates the beauty of finding romance all around us

My Rating; 4*s

My Review; I do not have much to say about this comic. It was sweet and it was quite short. It is about 100 pages long, but there are a lot of words.
A very sweet comic that I would recommend to someone. If I thought it was their kind of thing. 

I had never heard of Philippa Rice before this. Which is quite surprising considering how often I am on Tumblr. (See: All the time.)

I am glad I found this actually. I was looking for something different. This something was different, and short, which is what I seem to need lately. So, it's perfect for when you're in a kind of reading slump or are having readers' block but actually still want to read something. 

So, so cute. Made cuter by the fact that it is based on truth. 

Love doesn't have to be about grand gestures and confessions. There are other ways to show love.
