Click on "Click Here" then go to the comic "Honey & Honey"
This comic is about two women who are lovers, Sachiko and Masako.

The first comic you'll come to is a Christmas comic. Masako,
unusually, suggests they buy jewelry for presents. They decide to get
matching rings. They go to the jewelry store (NOT Hermes, Masako
warns), pick out matching rings, get sized, and get their rings
wrapped up. Through the whole thing they are massively embarrassed,
but happy - and the shop employee treats it all as a perfectly normal
transaction between her and any couple. They get their rings and go to
a cafe' where Masako asks Sachiko to open hers and look inside the
ring - she's had it inscribed "LOVE." (Awwww). They go off to a nice
romantic dinner, where the waitress asks them if they'd like the
special drink for women that night - strawberry champagne. They would,
of course. :-) Dinner is wonderful and romantic and they decide to get
dessert and take it home. And they live happily ever after.
It was insanely sweet and cute. But why was it amazing? Because this
comic runs in "Davinch," which, Rica tells me is a major general
magazine, not a gay magazine at all.
I'm with Rica...this is amazing. Now I have to go back and read
through the archives. :-)
