Comic, Brett Williams, Ink Spill Press, lauraknowsbest.com, price not listed

Heavy foreshadowing abounds on the cover of The Married Life. It features a playing card motif. The king is all smiley. The queen on the inverse looks pissed. The cover’s cues are correct: This comic is a series of snapshots of male/female relationships. But strangely, this isn’t a comic focused on conflict at all, from what I can tell. Instead it’s a “celebration”
of the smaller everyday dynamics that couples have, the conversations they share and the stilted ecosystems that sprout up to nourish their relationships. Topics include babysitting, transportation, the death of hipster-dom and Vietnamese food. It paints a picture of the commonality of everyday life, including tolerance, understanding, fun and some nonchalance. In that way, there is something very real about The Married Life. Given the fact it’s a well-produced comic with solid artwork and a bold full-colour cover, it should appeal to a wide audience. (Cam Gordon)
