Dogs are everyday heroes—providing us with love, companionship, and countless memorable moments. Hey Buddy Comics depicts the special bond between pet and owner in relateable illustrated dialogues. The popular webcomic was founded by a dog owner who had “been writing short dialogues” about his four-legged friend since he was a puppy. In 2019, the author mused that his collection of dog tales might be a great foundation for a comic strip and, upon finding the artistic talents of “K,” was finally able to launch Hey Buddy Comics as an online series.
This quirky cartoon touches on a myriad of relateable instances between dogs and their owners—ranging in tone from silly to more melancholic. In some of its slice-of-life episodes, the comic strip talks about separation anxiety, begging for food, and, of course, new toys. Occasionally, the creative duo introduces sci-fi characters like aliens to the ongoing story—offering a hilariously unbiased interpretation of dogs and their humans.
However, Hey Buddy Comics explores the deeper, more emotional aspects of owning a dog as well. After a few sunny episodes, the team intersperses a somber comic strip that reminds us to cherish the special relationship we have with our pet because unfortunately, it won’t last forever.
