[edit] Explanation

Kurt Halsey is a comic artist from Oregon. He was also referenced in 24: Godel, Escher, Kurt Halsey. His style is similar to that in this comic. Many of his comics and paintings depict a couple and convey various emotions they go through.

This comic addresses the issue of commitment-phobic partners, who gets into a relationship but gets cold feet when it starts to get serious. The girl wants someone who can see every part of who she is, and still love her.
