Have you ever had that “finally, somebody understands me” feeling? The same feeling you felt in your years of teen angst, when you heard Nirvana or read Catcher in the Rye for the first time? The feeling you get when you meet someone and think to yourself “yeah, we were definitely friends in a past life.” That’s how I feel about Invisible Bread.
You’re saying, “Blast! This intern duped me! This blog title is misleading. This comic strip won’t take inches off my waist line!” Wrong. You’ll be laughing those inches off your waistline in no time. Here’s why…
Not only is this strip named after everyone’s favorite form of carbohydrate, it also magically encapsulates all the desirable traits of your favorite comic strips. Invisible Bread plays with the small moments of anxiety and panic we have to deal with in our day-to-day life and mixes it moments of joie de vivre, instead of being a never ending “the world is against me” saga. Plus, Justin Boyd, the creator, has taken the stick figure to a whole new level, both physically and intellectually. When it comes down to it, Invisible Bread is charmingly, simply human; it is relatable. What more can you ask for from a comic strip?
