Wednesday Webcomics: “Babe! Series”

Babe! Series tells the story of two twenty-something women who live together.

Reprinted from The Geekiary and Wayback Machine. This was the twenty-third article I wrote for The Geekiary. This post was originally published on January 5, 2022.

Babe! Series, by bisexual Filipino artist Darunni, is a fun slice-of-life girls’ love story full of cuteness, blushing, and sweetness. It is partially based on the relationship between Darunni and her ex-girlfriend, Zoey, who work on the comic together.

Liz and Zoey live together as a romantic couple, with Liz as an illustrator, and Zoey as a serious gaymer. She also has a cat named Aiden.

Babe! Series has a compelling storyline and characters, even through the issues are short. This is buttressed by colorful illustrations which pull you in. Throughout the comic, Liz calls Zoey “babe” rather than using her actual name, hence the name of the comic!

Zoey has her smooth pick up lines and is a cat-lover. I can’t relate to the first part, but I’m a person who really loves cats, too. Some of my favorite episodes were the ones where the characters broke the fourth wall.

Although the series ran from March 2020 to February 2021, and will no longer be updated, it is still intriguing to read. One of the protagonists, Liz, is queer and Asian, while the other, Zoey, is pansexual and White. The comic was drawn, according to a Q&A, with a drawing monitor known as Huion Kamvas GT-191 V2, using software like Clip Studio Paint and SketchUp, and previously Medibang.

The webcomic, which has over 40 episodes, is written and illustrated by Darunni, with Zoey Medic as a co-writer. Darunni is also known for her webcomics She’s a Keeper, No Coffee No Life, and Oh! My Genie. The latter two series are on extended hiatus, while the former series is ongoing and going into its second season. The characters for this webcomic were created in October 2019 and it was Darunni’s idea to make it a slice-of-life comic.

Babe! Series is one of the many recent girls’ love stories. This includes some series recommended by Darunni, like Bunny Problem, along with others such as Mage & Demon Queen, High Class Homos, Not So Shoujo Story, Princess of Bloomville, Bring Me Love, Vowrune, Ice Massacre, and The Pirate and the Princess, to name a few which are currently ongoing.

Babe! Series is available to read on WebToon and the WebComics App.

You can find Darunni on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
