After you build a foundation with someone and spend a good amount of time getting to know each other, you realize that your everyday life can be just as romantic as that concert you flew to when started seeing each other. You just have to make the most of it. 'Our Super Adventure' is a comic diary by Sarah Graley that revolves around her long-term relationship, and the series perfectly proves that a couple need only each other to feel happy. And four cats.
Sarah met her partner, Stef around eight years ago. "I was making plush ghosts for an indie punk band that we both really like (Johnny Foreigner, they're great and you should check them out!), and the band advertised a link to my Tumblr page and we ended up meeting through Tumblr pretty much," she told Bored Panda. "A few years later we went on a first date and the rest is history! Stef recently proposed to me on our seventh anniversary which was super sweet!"
"I grew up with cats, so when me and Stef started renting a house together, it didn't take long for us to come to the decision that we'd love to get cats of our own," Sarah added. "We got Pesto and Toby in October 2013, and they were sisters from the same litter. A year or so later, Pesto got pregnant and had a litter of four - we kept Wilson and Pixel." The rest went to their relatives.
Sarah started 'Our Super Adventure' as way of documenting little moments in her and Stef's relationship and they really resonated with people. "We talk to loads of people at comic shows and online who tell us that they do the silly stuff we do in the comics as well and that's really sweet! I think there are a lot of playful nerdy relationships in the world and it's nice to know there's a bunch of people out there in relationships with their best pal who have a friendly sense of humor in their companionship."
Also, the first 'Our Super Adventure' book is being re-released by Oni Press in March 2019. Titled "Our Super Adventure: Press Start To Begin", it is coming out just as the second 'Our Super Adventure' collection, "Video Games and Pizza Parties," was funded on Kickstarter for a special first edition!
