The great thing about comics is that they don’t always have to be happy, and they don’t always need to make you laugh – as these Square Comics more than prove.
Sometimes they can make you laugh even if they aren’t very happy – and 24-year-old comic illustrator, Alvin Juarno from Indonesia has an uncanny ability to do just that.
After you read through his “Square Comics”, you’ll see exactly why he has an amazing following of over 430k people on Instagram. The attention is obviously deserved.
