War and Peas Comics Will Win You Over With Their Dark Humor and Unexpected Twists

Instagram is home to more hilarious illustrators than we can count, but only a rare few reached the popularity of War and Peas. This series of comics became a huge hit online thanks to its surreal, dark humor and amazing twists that you’ll never see coming.

War and Peas is the brainchild of Elizabeth Pich and Jonathan Kunz, two artists from the small town of Saarbrücken, Germany. They’ve been working together since 2011 and they say they’re “bounded by fate and an obsession for carrot cake and alien movies”.

Teamwork is one of their biggest strengths and the secret to their longevity. The duo told Bored Panda that they don’t always agree, but pushing ideas back and forth helps them evolve.

“It helps take jokes to the next level and allows for a reflective process which is not possible for individual artists. For years, we’ve been witnessing webcomic artists emerging and leaving the game. As a duo, we are extremely stubborn and might just never stop making comics,” the duo explained.

The name of their webcomic series is a clear reference to Leo Tolstoy’s seminal novel War and Peace, but the similarities end there. War and Peas’ comics are as hilarious as it gets, and they offer a fresh take on all sorts of different topics, with many hilarious and unexpected twists.
