Freelance artist Leigh Gallagher has one-upped all the creative and spectacular marriage proposals of late with his own plea: an epic and beautiful webcomic.

He chronicled their relationship, from a first-encounter at speed dating, through a really awkward first date that should have meant the end of it, and through six years of his goofy costumes and her morning peppiness. And he did so in a way that is so goddamned good. That's really the only way to say it.

I won't waste any more of your time with my words — go directly to the comic, read it and report back.
