Nerdy Relationships: Movies Vs. Real Life

It's no surprise most movies made for geeks feature a nerdy relationship far too good to be true, since roping the audience into the storyline of a movie is a textbook tactic to make viewer's feel invested in the film.

But movies also reduce real life to black and white generalizations, so their portrayal of nerd culture makes us all seem like Sheldon from The Big Bang Theory, which is an insult to nerd diversity.

So illustrator JHALL created this cute comic strip to show all the ways the movies get nerd love wrong, from the epic Con adventures to the male chauvinist friends to the drama of moving in together.
