6 comics that highlight the tiny, important details in long-term relationships.

Psychologists expose the personality traits of a selfie addict, from being extroverted to a social exhibitionist.



For illustrator Vladimir Khaetsky and writer Natasha Garbuz, it’s the simple things that define love.

For three years, the Russian comic artists captured everyday moments in their marriage, transforming the mundane in to relatable and quirky strips. At times, their love knows no bounds(or personal space).

Based in St. Petersburg, the couple created “Morning Cup of Comics” — a digital diary they hope to one day publish as a graphic novel. The series follows Vova and Nastya and features the everyday life of a couple in a long-term relationship.

Daily honey-do’s, like washing dishes, transform into playful daydreams.

The comics are fun but also an honest portrayal of two people in a deep, committed relationship.

“Some of the stories we come up with [are] based on the nature of our character. Nastya [is] fiery and Vova [is] phlegmatic. It gives an interesting combination,” Vladimir said in an email.

 “Work on the comics gives the opportunity to look at your life from a different angle.”
