Webcomic Wednesday: Married to the Sea

Webcomic Wednesdays is a weekly feature here at Girls Read Comics Too. Each week, we like to shine a spotlight on one of the webcomics that we happen to keep up with on the interwebs.

 Married to the Sea has the dubious distinction of being one  of the first webcomics that I read with any regularity. While I no longer read it as frequently as I did back in 2006(what used to be a daily check in has turned into a once-a-month peek), it still holds a special place in my heart.

Comprised of antiqued drawings matched with little blurbs and word bubbles, each comic is roughly a panel long. There is no overarching narrative or connection between each comic, but Married to the Sea can be a lot of fun when you’re in the mood for a quick guffaw. Which is really the best descriptor for the kind of laughing that I do when I read it.

The strangely warped brain child of creators Natalie Dee and Drew, Married to the Sea has its own off-beat, nonsequitar charm. While likely to be more appreciated by those with a markedly dry and kind of odd sense of humor, it frequently drags it’s jokes from everywhere (include top 40 hip hop hits and those books you read for school as a kid). It is a bit like someone put pop culture in a blender, taught it to talk, and matched it up with art ranching from the 1880s to the 1980s and posted it on the internet. Which it very well might be, but  I enjoy immensely.

So if you’re in the mood for a two minute distraction, I strongly suggested reading Married to the Sea (www.marriedtothesea.com). It’s part of a bigger consortion of web comics that can be linked to from there.  Have fun! 

Are you the creator of a webcomic? Do you have a webcomic that you love and think more people should check out? Then drop us a line either here in the comments or shoot us an email! We’re always looking for new things to read and get excited about!

    Hi!

    Thanks for sharing this comic Married To The Sea, I’ve never followed it but I’m bookmarking it and will give it another go!

    A good friend of mine has a comic series, he’s stopped with his new gig, but he still illustrates and hopefully will come up with another series.
