February may be the most romantic month, but did you know that April is Couple Appreciation Month? Grab your beloved and remind them why they’re so special to you!
In recognition of Couple Appreciation Month, we’re highlighting some of our favorite couples in the world of comics. Proceed with caution — love is in the air!
1. Jon and Liz (Garfield by Jim Davis)
They say doctors shouldn’t get involved with their patients, but that’s exactly what Liz did (she was Garfield’s veterinarian before dating Jon), and look at how well things turned out!
2. Charlie Brown and the Little Red-Haired Girl (Peanuts by Charles Schulz)
Although Charlie Brown can never quite work up the courage to speak to her, his perennial admiration and loyalty is a testament to the optimism of unrequited love.
3. Arlo and Janis (Arlo and Janis by Jimmy Johnson)
Everyone’s favorite baby boomer couple continues to delight generations of readers with their easygoing approach to the trials and tribulations of domestic life.
4. Calvin and Susie (Calvin and Hobbes by Bill Watterson)
Despite spending most of their time pranking each other, Calvin and Susie shared a deep-seated affection that was hinted at several times throughout Calvin and Hobbes’ run.
We hope these funny page lovebirds have inspired you! However you choose to celebrate, have a happy Couple Appreciation Month.
