Despite this, I spend an entire day reading this comic because I NEEDED to see TJ and Amal get together. And once I was done with what had been posted so far, I went back and re-read it, and re-read it, and re-read it.
It's fucking beautiful.
It's the story of a med student, Amal, and TJ, a (seemingly) aimless but amusing stranger. The author's description is as follows:
In the span of a single day, Amal calls off his arranged marriage, comes out to his conservative parents, prompty gets disowned, goes on a bender... and wakes up the next morning to find TJ, a lanky, dreadlocked vagrant, frying eggs and singing Paul Simmons in his kitchen.TJ and Amal feel like real people. When you read the comic and watch their expressions as they talk, you can hear every unsaid thing going through their minds. Wow. Just, wow.
TJ claims that the two have made a drunken pact to drive all the way from Berkeley to Providence. As it happens, Amal promised his sister he'd be there for her graduation from Brown University. And TJ, well... TJ has his own reasons.
The agreement is simple: Amal does the driving, TJ pays the way - but a 3500 mile journey leaves plenty for time for things to get complicated.
Look at this! Oh god, my heart just MELTS.
