True love isn't always about the big romantic gestures. Sometimes it's about sympathising with someone whose tea has gone cold, watching TV and sharing a quilt, or allowing your partner to order take-away pizza again . When two people move in together, it soon becomes apparent that the little things mean an awful lot. The throwaway moments in life become meaningful when you spend them in the company of someone you love. Soppy is Philippa Rice's collection of comics based on real-life moments with her boyfriend. From grocery shopping to silly arguments and snuggling in front of the television, Soppy captures the universal experience of sharing a life together .
"This so-adorable-it-hurts books features many intimate real-life moments...that are instantly recognisable to anyone who's ever had a heart or a discussion with their partner about whether they'd want to be shot if they became a zombie. It's as if those Love Is cartoons from my childhood, with the naked couple, have suddenly grown up, got cool and finally put some clothes on." Red
