Who here loves Happle Tea?
Since you can’t see me, hopefully anyways, I am raising my hand. I found this comic a few months ago and have been gorging myself on its archives.
Mythology, fantasy, fairy tales, monsters, humor. I love the world that Happle Tea lives in. So much so that I really got carried away with this piece. When I was deciding what to draw, all my favorite strips flooded my brain. I couldn’t just draw Lil K, it wouldn’t have been enough. I needed to draw everything in a vain attempt to visit the world of Happle Tea just for a little while. I really want to bring that full world type of story telling into my own comic.
The writer/artist Scott Maynard has a great sense of humor. Whether putting a unique spin on a favorite fairy tales or just coming out of left field with some kind of clever insanity, I always found myself showing my girlfriend another strip she just had to read. To top it all off, he’s just a great artist. It’s a charming, storybook style but with a bit of a biting edge.
Don’t take my word for it. Go read it.
I’m always on the lookout for a great read. So if you have any comics you can’t live without, please pass it my way. Comics, webcomics, a Kickstarter, whatever.
