Comic Strip / InSecurity

Go To
The Funny of Love. note 

InSecurity is a Newspaper Comic Strip created by Bea R. and it premiered on Jan. 02, 2017.

It concerns two newlyweds, Sam and Sedine Kilgarriff, who live in surburbia and the situations they find themselves in due to their differing personalities. Sam is a rather laid back sort while Sedine has a more outrageous personality.

This strip has NOTHING to do with the tv series with the similar name.

The strip can be found here.

This strip contains the following tropes:

  • A Dog Named "Dog":The co-creator and Bea.R's husband has the pen name "Mr. Husband".
  • Animesque: The look of the strip seems like it came right out of a manga series, from wild-looking Anime Hair, Alertness Blinks, Big Ol' Eyebrows, and Visible Silence, to most other Japanese Visual Arts Tropes. As if to hammer the point home, the phrase "onii-san" even makes an appearance.
  • Attractive Bent-Gender: A recent series of strips has Sedine disguise Ellie as a man. Sure enough, a whole bunch of women are falling for “him”.
  • Berserk Button: Sedine's cousin Roy has a wife named Charlene whose Button is whatever doesn't fit her definition of normal.
  • Betty and Veronica: Sedine sees herself as the Betty to next door neighbor Ellie's Veronica for Sam's Archie. Good thing for Sedine Ellie is such a ditz.
  • The Big Guy: They don’t come any bigger than Hank Hubble Durum, aka Hubbs.

  • Big Ol' Eyebrows: Roy sports these and his baby daughter Gabby inherited them.
  • Bruiser with a Soft Center: Big, burly Hubbs who gets flustered and nervous around pretty girls, in particular Ellie.
  • Cannot Spit It Out: Hubbs is attracted to Ellie but he is unable to tell her so due to his being utterly nervous around women.
  • Cheerful Child: Micha, the eldest of Roy and Charlene's two daughters, is rather cheery in contrast with her baby sister Gabby.
  • Clingy Jealous Girl: Sedine's reaction to the fact that Ellie, who's renting the house next door, had once dated Sam in college has to be seen to be believed.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: Sedine has an odd way of seeing things.
  • Cute Kitten: Sedine found a cat she named "Ow"
("Me-OW!" "See?! You - Ow!! Me Sedine, He Sam!”)(note ). But he turned out to be Ellie's cat (Long story!), whose real name is Sir Pinky-Paw III von Cuteland am Rhein.
