14 comics that totally nail what it's like to be in a long-term relationship.

Sarah Graley makes comics.

Actually, Sarah Graley makes awesome comics. Wait, one more try.


Sarah Graley makes awesome comics starring amazing, strong, queer women, including herself.

She’s the artist and writer behind “Rick & Morty: Lil’ Poopy Superstar,” “Pizza Witch,” “RentQuest” and the autobiographical “Our Super Adventure,” which stars Graley and her boyfriend of five years, Stef. The comic documents the sweet and hilarious moments of their relationship and the life they share with their four cats. It doesn’t sound like typical fodder for a comic. And for Graley, that’s kind of the point.

“Before I got into comics, I believed for a really long time that comics were just about really muscular men in capes,” she said over email.

“And that didn’t interest me — I rather write stories with diverse range of exciting characters. (I’m really sorry if anyone reading this is a muscular man in a cape — you are probably a solid okay),” she joked.

She added, “I’m also a bisexual lady — growing up though, I don’t remember any media that featured queer woman, let alone starred? I really wish I had that as a kid! Or as a teen! I just want that all the time to be honest, more media featuring rad queer women. So I make my own!"

Her kickass characters are quirky, romantic, even magical women, and a welcome shift from the norm.

But starring in “Our Super Adventure” means the world gets a front-row seat to her relationship, which can be a little ... awkward.

“I’m a pretty open book, so writing about mine and Stef’s relationship and being honest — it doesn’t feel unnatural or weird until somebody will talk to me about a particular comic strip in-depth in person,” Graley wrote. “Then it’ll be like, oh yeah, I guess I did draw my butt and then publish it in a book.”

Seventy-five years ago, on January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

Auschwitz was the deadliest of Nazi Germany's 20 concentration camps. From 1940 to 1945 of the 1.3 million prisoners sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died. That figure includes 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.
