Boulet: The Darkness

Boulet, “The Darkness”

This comic, collected in a single running story on the page above, is among the best I’ve ever read on the internet. In fact, it may be one of the best I’ve ever read anywhere, period. In a well-illustrated and humorous way it tells the story of one young man’s quest to find love and the difficulties he encounters as a result of the overwhelming attractiveness of his brooding roommate.

It’s a great, relatable premise and one that is explored lightheartedly while also addressing some of the most important aspects of romantic relationships: attraction, honesty, emotional connection, love. It also addresses issues nice guys often feel pressured to confront when trying to impress the opposite sex, including the decision to adopt or not adopt certain personality characteristics one feels may be more attractive. As you can imagine, the protagonist has a lot to learn in this department and Boulet has some great insights to share throughout the story.

One of the most amazing things about this comic is that it was drawn entirely within a 24-hour period earlier this year. If that doesn’t impress you, I don’t know what will. Boulet is an incredibly talented writer and artist and I cannot recommend this comic enough. I hope you take some time to sit down and enjoy it – I guarantee you will have a heart-warming smile on your face by the time you reach the end.
