(W/A/CA) Philippa Rice. The wildly popular web comic Soppy, with more than half a million notes on Tumblr, is the illustrated love story of author Philippa Rice and her real-life boyfriend. True love isn't always about the big romantic gestures. Sometimes it's about sympathizing with someone whose tea has gone cold or reading together and sharing a quilt. When two people move in together, it soon becomes apparent that the little things mean an awful lot. The throwaway moments in life become meaningful when you spend them in the company of someone you love. Soppy captures the universal experience of sharing a life together, and celebrates the beauty of finding romance all around us.
