Pictures of You - Web Comic

Pictures of You by Gibson TwistPage from Pictures of You WebcomicThis online graphic novel is, in my opinion, a sort of slice of life drama about Peter Morris and his friends through their college years. Sounds awesome, right? Right?
Sounds about as dull as possible.
However, this is probably one of the few webcomics that i could not stop reading. Seriously I read it solid until i got to the latest page. It's funny, serious, scary, intense, irreverent, engaging, sad and intriguing. A bit like the Wonder Years but done really well and much more relevant to actual life and no Fred Savage (Not that I have anything against Fred), but its still a plus point.
The set up is the hook, The story starts with Peter and Andy heading to a party with Peter thinking about his life, where he's at now, leading him to reminisce about the friend he had through college/Uni.
There is so much that happens to start saying more would begin to spoil things so I'll go with a few random words that may get you more interested.
How about drinking, playing chess, smoking weed, forming a band, falling in love, homophobia, cultural ineptitude, spousal abuse, more drinking, lots more smoking weed, strippers, porn movies, more weed smoking, star wars and Muligan. And that's just scraping the surface.

Oh, and it updates every other day.

Please Go check this out, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Remember to come back and tell me what you thought.
