In college, "A Softer World" was one of my favorite stops on the web. A collaboration between writer Joey Comeau and photographer Emily Horne, the site features comics that read like poetry - they're often very dark, but do some digging and you'll stumble across gems that are exceptionally sweet, heartbreakingly gorgeous, and, at times, ridiculously funny. Paging through its archives earlier this week, I was happy to revisit some of my favorite entries - and discover a few new ones, as well. Below, four stand-outs.
