Cat and Girl, the benevolent Philosopher-Queen of webcomics, is ten years old. Actually, it’s a bit more than ten years old, but Dorothy Gambrell is a modest sort, and only got around to mentioning it in a quiet little notice. From its
humble anarchic and hellraising beginnings, Cat and Girl has been consistently funny, and never more so than in Gambrell’s ongoing act of webcomics diary-keeping, Donation Derby, wherein she shows you where your donation money gets spent.
- Speaking of webcomics characters named “Girl”, the eponymous heroine of A Girl and Her Fed (actual name subtly revealed, but if you didn’t find it, I ain’t ruining the surprise) tells us the unvarnished truth about time travel[lers] today. For me, the real treat is the voice I hear for her when reading panel one — it’s got that little-kid-saying-sorry-but-not-really intonation, and I like to think that she’s making circles on the floor with her toe. Also, the word “skullfucked” (Hey kids! Ask your parents what it means!) is inherently funny.
- T Campbell‘s mysterious, unfathomable, and eerie powers of knowing when he is mentioned appear to be on the fritz. Nearly two weeks to respond? Gotta get back in shape, T.
- SDCC Preview Night is officially four weeks away, so this is a good time to start the clearinghouse of webcomics information that we at Fleen strive to provide every year. If you’re going, drop us a line with booth number and any special events or panels you want to highlight; we’ll start with the info transfer in two weeks or so, and update as appropriate.
