The Square Comics is a series of comic strips created by Alvin Juano, a 24-year-old comic artist from Jakarta, Indonesia. The comics are known for their dark humor and often begin with a cheer. Alvin Juano started The Square Comics in 2014 as a way to cope with a difficult period in his life. The comics have gained a large following on Instagram, with 608,000 followers. In addition to the comics, Alvin Juano has also created a collection of 3,535 unique square-headed beings called Squarmies, which have all been sold out.


The comics often feature characters who are dealing with difficult situations, such as anxiety, depression, and loneliness. However, Juano always finds a way to find the funny side of things, and his comics often leave readers feeling hopeful and inspired. In one comic, a character is sitting in a room, surrounded by darkness. The caption reads, “When you’re feeling down, it’s easy to feel like you’re all alone. But remember, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.”

His comics have long been a source of joy and amusement for readers, starting with a cheerful tone that lures you into a world of humor and lightheartedness. With colorful characters and witty dialogue, these comics have the power to make you burst into laughter within seconds. However, what sets them apart is their uncanny ability to take a sudden, dark turn, weaving unexpected twists and themes into their narratives. Just when you think you’re in for a carefree ride, the storylines delve into deeper, thought-provoking issues, leaving readers both surprised and introspective.
