I received a copy of Happily Ever After & Everything In Between in exchange for a fair and honest review.

Happily Ever After & Everything In Between is an amazing comic collection from the mind of Debbie Tung. It’s all about married life, especially the more insane elements that can come from the first few years of being together.

This has got to be one of the more endearing graphic novels I’ve read this year. It’s so adorable yet isn’t afraid to make jokes at the expense of the two leading characters (a recently married couple, naturally).

Their relationship is so organic and real, you can tell that Debbie Tung based much of it (if not all of it) on real life. Personally, I love that the couple features an introvert and an extrovert. Anybody who has been in or seen this pairing before knows exactly how chaotic it can become at times!

It’s amazing how relatable both characters are (though obviously, I found myself appreciating the commentary from the introvert more, no surprise there). Plus, I love how weird the characters were portrayed as – because we all get a little bit weird when there’s nobody other than our significant other around. It’s okay to admit that! That’s something that Debbie Tung really reinforced here, and I love it.

If you’ve ever seen or read anything by Debbie Tung in the past, then you know exactly what you’re in for in regards to the art style. If not, the cover itself should help to give you an idea. She loves making quirky characters, and usually works in mostly black and grays (though when color is called for, red is always a fun way to go).

I cannot recommend Happily Ever After & Everything In Between, or any of Debbie Tung’s graphic novels enough. I adore her work, and cannot wait to see what she comes up with next.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
