Hello again, comic fans! I was super stoked to do another staff pick post, but even more so when I saw that Adam@Home hadn’t been picked yet! This strip has become the star of my “My Comics Page,” always delivering a good laugh.
The main character, Adam, is a work-from-home husband and father, who perfectly exemplifies a true-to-life family man. The trials and tribulations of Adam’s life are as relatable as they are hilarious, which is why I find this strip so endearing.
For starters, like any real, hardworking adult, Adam relies on the elixir of life — otherwise known as a strong cup of coffee — to keep him going. I can appreciate anyone who shares my enthusiasm for (addiction to) coffee.
Although he works hard, Adam never allows work to get in the way of family time (something every one of us should remember to do).
That being said, every parent needs a break now and then, and that’s OK.
Adam is more than a parent, though; he is also a thoughtful husband. A true romantic … so long as you keep in mind that it is the thought that counts.
Through it all, Adam reminds us of the need to find humor in the everyday mistakes. Life can have a very cruel sense of humor sometimes, but it’s not hard to feel better about your own life when you see Adam’s hilarious mess-ups.
Adam@Home exhibits all the relatable realities of marriage and parenthood – and makes them funny! Balancing a family and a career is hard work, and I love that Adam makes some hilariously epic mistakes and can laugh them off. After all, that’s what life’s all about, right?
