To wrap up my slice of life recommendations for 2021, I’ve gathered my latest reads in the genre. Webcomics featured on this post are from WebToon and Tapas.
I’m excited to present to you my latest slice of life reads. The ten webcomics listed below contain moments of joy, meditations on identity and place, physical and emotional transitions, families of all sorts, and more.
Join Maddie, Dylan, and their friends as they navigate school and family life. This is an adorable slice of life webcomic. I’ve also had the pleasure to read Silly Innocence’s short webcomic, Bread, which I featured in this post.
This slice of life webcomic follows Josh, his sister Sarah, and his best friend Jabari. Each goes through the joys and challenges of everyday life.
Alexis begins high school at the prestigious Grey Academy. There, she makes new friends and experiences the best and the worst of her generation. I admire the endearing character dynamics in this webcomic.
An episodic webcomic about a geeky Black girl, this is a fun read.
Nashantá Fletcher sketches her way through life (pun intended) in this slice of life webcomic. Snippets from her childhood and daily life are included.
Mostly based on the creator’s life, the protagonist Roshu shares her experiences as an East Indian living in America. University life, a parody of Disney’s Aladdin, family, and more.
Mubina, a young Black Muslim, opens up about her daily life: gun violence, dealing with facial hair, and mental health. Hi, It’s Mubina features gorgeous sequential art and narrative pacing.
Follow the daily life and experiences of Tiresias, a Queer transmasc Muslim. Binding, gender dysphoria, and forgetting to put on sandals while going out are all part of the story.
Happy Hapa by Nash (Creator’s site is unavailable)
Nash, identifying as an American-born Eurasian, invites his readers to his perspective as a mixed race Chinese man dealing with microaggressions and just life in general. The creator also highlights the issues with ethnic ambiguity and being mixed race (idealization, fetishization, etc.).
Doubles, his girlfriend Hot Sauce, his younger sister Saheena, and his friend Chutney (all West Indians) hang out together and engage in shenanigans. This is a sweet and cute slice of life webcomic.
