What is this?

The Way Life Should Be was a comic strip.

It was created by Pat Doran in 2002 and ran for 4 glorious years. It chronicled the adventures of four roommates and their circle of friends (and the occasional arch nemesis) through their college experience. Funny, cynical, and (in hindsight) sometimes overly emotional TWLSB (as the kids called it) was loved by all and hated by very few (screw you, Ted). It remains as a portrait of a certain time. On and on, into infinity, or until the zombie apocalypse finally shuts the Internet down.
