Do you ever think about how good Check, Please! is and cry?
There’re lots of dark, gritty stories out there. Stories where hate and sarcasm and pain are the norm. And I’m just too tired of them. Because they don’t make me happy, they leave me feeling heavy instead.
But Check, Please!? Check, Please! is nothing like that. It’s premised on friendship, on growth, on healing, on hope. It’s one of those stories that make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside and put a smile on your face even after a particularly bad day. ([Jack voice] If there’s anything on my face, you put it there.)
And don’t get me started on Bitty and Jack. I love reading about their love, because it’s not every day that you find such a healthy relationship. They talk and they laugh and god, they really would do anything for each other, wouldn’t they? For their bestfriend and boyfriend, the other member of their lovely little team. They’re just too precious.
Ngozi is an amazing storyteller and artist, and she puts so much love and effort into every single panel she draws ♡♡
