Superheroics and Sidekicks Become Metaphors for Love in ‘Girl and Boy’ [Preview]

In Girl and Boy, the debut comic by Andrew Tunney, a heroine named Girl explores her relationship with the titular hero in a story that may or may not really be about superheroes. “We fight crime and loneliness,” says Girl as the two masked crusaders race through the streets. “I think he’s my favorite sidekick ever.” Superhero comics love to pair characters off as heroes and sidekicks (not to mention good guys and their evil counterparts), and Girl and Boy takes a look at those familiar tropes as metaphors for how certain relationships can begin to define us, and what happens to our identities (secret or otherwise) once they’re over.

The full comic can be purchased online (and includes NSFW content), but we’ve got a SFW 7-page preview after the cut.
