For the past 2 years, I've been creating a tri-weekly webcomic called Askaran about my experiences of life, anxiety, and the world (You may have even seen my previous post here on Bored Panda).

When the COVID-19 pandemic started to emerge at the start of the year, it didn't quite make sense to continue writing comics about the depressed, anxious and fictional Askaran, while ignoring the massive virus that seemed to be affecting every aspect of our lives, so, unfortunately for Askaran, the coronavirus started breaking out in his fictional world too.

Here are 27 of my comics about life during the coronavirus.

The relativity of time surely is interesting. I feel like this year has been very fast. It's June already, half the year is already gone and it felt like yesterday when in December I postponed my planned trip to my hometown (Croatia) for May of this year. In the meantime Mr. Problem's government (문재인) set up a ridiculous law and now I just can't leave neither for holidays, because I can't re-enter. Not that I would travel abroad with the coronavirus around, but it makes no sense, when you consider we pose just as much threat as the rest of the fellow Koreans who didn't leave the country since last year's Thanksgiving (Japan). Especially when you take into account some of us have marriage and permanent visas. I so hope this is temporary and can't wait for it to end, but the political consequences of this crisis scare me more than the virus itself. It's like, some corrupted leaders took the opportunity to sneak out oppressive measures while the world is busy fighting with a serious threat already.

At first I was afraid, I was petrified Kept thinking I could never live without you by my side But then I spent so many nights thinking how you did me wrong And I grew strong, and I learned how to get along And so you're back from outer space I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face I should have changed that stupid lock I should have made you leave your key If I'd have known for just one second you'd be back to bother me Go on now, go. Walk out the door Just turn around now 'cause you're not welcome anymore Weren't you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye? Did you think I'd crumble? Did you think I'd lay down and die? Oh, no, not I I will survive Oh, as long as I know how to love I know I'll stay alive I've got all my life to live I've got all my love to give And I'll survive I will survive, hey, hey It took all the strength I had not to fall apart Kept trying hard to mend the pieces of my broken heart And I spent, oh, so many nights just feeling so

Wait, doesn’t everyone just assume their produce has been handled by multiple strangers, so they wash it when they get home? It can’t just be me, right?
