Meet Friendship Mage, your favorite hero whom you haven't heard of yet. Created by Martin Rosner, the genius behind Hot Paper Comics, this warrior in a blue hat is all about, you guessed it, friendship. And even though Martin's artistic background consists only of him drawing in his free time, the wholesome adventures of this lovely character are as pleasing as they can get. From mentoring his pupil to finding inner peace, I'm almost certain these comic strips will put a smile on your face.

"I'd describe my cartoon drawings' style as very minimalist, with a bit of color and amateurish linework," Martin told Bored Panda. His funny comics remind us of War and Peas or C-Casandra in the sense that they're really compact. "I make comics in 3-4 panels because it's usually enough to tell the joke or story I have in mind."

"I touch upon themes of comedy and mental health. I avoid current political topics. I like talking about comedy and mental health, and politics just isn't something I enjoy," the artist explained about his sense of humor.

Since the young Croatian started creating webcomics, he's got the chance to talk to a lot of cool authors as well which really helped him develop as an artist. Extra Fabulous Comics, Mr. Lovestein, and Perry Bible Fellowship being some of them. "I had been reading them for years and talking to them has been surreal," he said.

Ignorance is not bliss... it is uncomfortable knowing that you don't know things. Learning takes work, but it is fun, makes you a better person, and makes the world better....

I lay in my bed and I do guided Meditation before sleep to sleep better . Work wonderfully. No more sleeping pill, no more nightmare and almost no more teeth pressing due stress. Almost.

Anger can be good: it energizes and brings about changes. Just don't get stuck there.

Loving people can hurt... it is being loved in return that is wonderful and uplifting.

No. This is wrong. This one implies the impetus is on you to put the effort in the friendship if you want to spend time together. Don't get me wrong, I'm more often then not the initiator, but if the people I call friend never initiate with me, they aren't invested in the friendship. I learned this the hard way when I did an experiment and didn't reach out to any of the people I thought were friends for two weeks. Guess who didn't get a single call, text, or e-mail in those two weeks. Guess who hasn't heard from any of them in the years that followed asking me why I stopped hanging out. A real friend is one whose as interested in spending time with you as you are them. Never settle for less. :)

This guy... this guy is so true and pure that he's made friend with random strangers, "monsters", and even the dead. I admire him.
