A devastatingly funny view of how romantic couples are not on the same page
Tommy Siegel’s single-panel “candy hearts” cartoons are sharp-edged yet lighthearted observations of human romantic relationships. Each one brilliantly depicts the many ways in which lovers deceive each other and hide their true feelings from the world. In Tommy Siegel’s capable hands, this simple premise is incredibly relatable and very, very funny.
I picked up this one because the premise sounded humorous and like it would be a good palette cleanser from some of the other stuff I’ve been reading lately, and it was exactly that. These single page comments of candy hearts saying what they are really thinking and feeling in the moment. Be forewarned that there is some language, but if you’re looking for a very relatable laugh, this is a great one for it.
