Little Moments of Love

For those unfamiliar with Catana Comics, it’s a web comic about the artist and her relationship with her boyfriend. It’s another series that regularly makes its rounds on social media, which I imagine is where most people have seen it.

“I zip-tied you to your chair, now you’ll have to take your pants off to escape! I’ll watch.”

To say that this comic is sweet is an understatement. It is 100% relationship cheese that will be either #couplegoals or gag inducing depending on the audience. It’s clear that Catana and John are very much in love and they’re extremely cute together.

The comics, like the art, are simple. The title pretty much sums up the entire series in general as each strip is like a small snippet of life in a long term relationship. Fans of the comic series will probably love the collection, naturally. However, for myself as a casual reader that appreciates seeing the occasional strip show up on my feed I found the collection overall to be alright. Even a hopeless romantic like me can get tired of the overload of relationship fluff.

It’s good if you don’t expect too much from it, but at the same time I don’t feel compelled to read more.

    I’ve seen little strips of this comic on Facebook and I’ve always thought they were cute. But I agree, I would get bored very quickly if it’s just cuteness overload at all times.
    Great review!

    1. I ran into Catana Comics pretty much the same way, it’s part of why I picked up the collection. It’s decent for what it is, just not a go-to for me.

  2. I ADORE Catana Comics! This looks super cute. I agree though–seeing too much of it in one big sweep can get tiring.

    1. Yay, nice to see another fan! Also yeah that seems to be the issue with a lot of comic strip collections. It is nice to see them in print, though. 🙂

  3. This makes me think of “Will You Still Love Me If I Wet the Bed?” by Liz Prince. I liked her collection, but I think even I was a little “so cheesy” by the end of her book. I could imagine this one being worse. Though they seem cute in small doses.

    1. After looking up the comic you mentioned it definitely has the same theme. It’s cute and great at the right times I think. 🙂
