Ridiculously cute. This comic perfectly captures that sweet pain of having a crush. You know what I mean? You cringe because it's relatable but also smile because it's adorable. The story takes it's time so you can bask in the emotions the main characters go through. Fair warning: Like a lot of good stories, there's a cliffhanger at the end. But, I think it's worth it.
