Father Reveals What It’s Like Having Kids In Hilarious Comic Strips


Parenting is a journey for the parents just as much as for their little ones, and Chris Grady is drawing and sharing his in a brilliant comic called Lunarbaboon. By focusing on a small family’s adventures, the series spots and highlights humor in simple everyday situations. It also touches some sensitive and dark(er) subjects but does so in a way that feels sincere and, eventually, ends on a postive note.

“Lunarbaboon was created as a way for me to combat my anxiety and depression,” Grady writes. The father of a 7-year-old son and 2-year-old daughter thinks it’s impossible not to be influenced by everything around you. “There is a lot of bad things happening in the world, but there is also a lot of good,” he told HuffPost. “I am very lucky to be married to a very smart, strong, opinionated person who is constantly fighting against injustice. A lot of what she and I talk about on a daily basis makes it into the comics.”
