“Can We Get Pizza Anyway”: Philippa Rice’s “Soppy”

Since 2013, illustrator Philippa Rice has been chronicling her relationship with her boyfriend, Luke in a sweet series of web comics, and the drawings were recently released as the book, Soppy. Rather than the dramatic gestures that usually characterize how we talk about love in pop culture, Soppy is full of weird, funny, everyday moments. Reading it, I kept thinking “Hey, we do that, too!” and suddenly the things that I thought were singular quirks to just my relationship seemed almost universal. Maybe none of us are as weird as we’d like to think ; )
