The Pixie and Brutus comic series is so sincere, it manages to unite cat and dog lovers with every strip it releases. What began as a random animal adventure has evolved into so much more and now the fans of Pixie and Brutus can't get enough of it. And to satisfy their desire, they even started making their own comics in between the releases of the originals. Some of them are really, really good as well. So good, you probably wouldn't raise any questions if you saw them on the Pixie and Brutus Instagram account.

One of the fans who contributed, Holly Foret, said she found out about Pixie and Brutus through their Instagram fan club. "I love the comics because they're the most wholesome characters ever," Holly told Bored Panda. "And it's different from the other animal comics because Brutus is a retired veteran dog! With scars on the inside and out. Pixie brings back out that tender patient side of him"

And the whole comic does revolve around the two main characters. I mean, it's in the title. Their chemistry is a huge part of what makes it so good. When creating Pixie and Brutus, Ben Hed thought it would be a funny idea to introduce a cute little kitten to a big intimidating war dog.“Pixie is a tiny, joyful, energetic kitten,” Ben told Bored Panda. “She’s innocent, and also somewhat oblivious to the serious, dangerous stuff around her.”

On the other hand, Brutus is a large, scar-faced German Shepherd. “He was adopted by Pixie’s owner after retiring as a Military Working Dog (MWD). Brutus, in many ways, is the exact opposite of Pixie. He’s… Seen things. He’s a very serious and intimidating military dog, but he has a soft spot for Pixie, and does what he can to protect her from the harsh realities of the world around them.”

Another contributor, Kassandra from the United States, found Pixie and Brutus on the Instagram explore page. "I thought they were adorable and since then I'm a huge fan! I even subscribe to the creator's Patreon so I get to see extra comics!"

"I like the comic so much because [the strips] are simplistic and feel good. They make me smile when I've had a bad day. I also love the dynamic between the characters."

Also, Kassandra believes that a huge reason behind the success of Pixie and Brutus is the lack of common tropes like cats and dogs disliking each other. "It doesn't feature a mean cat or a goofy dog, the characters are unique," she said. "You don't expect Brutus to be so sweet of a brother based on his looks. I think the world that Banjamin created is well done and leaves me wanting to see more of it."

"I would just like to add that all of Benjamin's characters are amazing, not just Pixie and Brutus. Randal the Raccoon is a favorite of mine! And to all the fan artists who contribute to the Pixie and Brutus comics, I've seen a lot of your stuff and you are all amazing artists as well!"

Juliette from France, another fan artist, is following Pixie and Brutus from the very beginning. "I really like the humor, the contrast between an old military dog and an innocent kitten," she said. "It works really well! I don't really follow other comics that involve animals so I can't make a lot of comparisons, but Ben Hed really succeeded in creating something unique. I also like the personalities of other characters and how every story is part of the same universe, a sort of Pet Foolery Cinematic Universe, haha."

Another contributor, is Anastasia from Belarus. She also found out about the series via Instagram's explore page. "I really love the comics because Pixie and Brutus are so incredibly cute and it's a completely different spin on pet comics. Nothing I've seen before," she said. "Pixie and Brutus comics have a deeper meaning. For example, they show how friendships can be formed even between two opposite personalities."

I know this sounds different, but, my best friends cat loves water. She jumps in the bathtub and scratches the faucet. One time, my friend was showering and her cat jumped in...
