The Awkward Yeti encompasses a variety of comics about life, introversion, science, and the balance of our inner dialogue. See mundane ailments turned into epic stories, decide whether you’re more of a Heart or a Brain, and try to see which of your friends is the most “Lars.” The Awkward Yeti is like reading multiple webcomics in one series, all from the same creator. CAST Lars: The central character and star of The Awkward Yeti, Lars is an introvert trying to find his place in what feels like an extrovert’s world. Vince: Lars’ brother is muscular, confident, and a little simpler. Vince and Lars get along well, but have very different approaches to life. Herschel: in his infrequent appearances, Herschel is the consummate “sales guy,” using basic tactics to win people over in nearly all of his conversations. Lisa: an ongoing love interest, we’re never quite sure if she’s humoring Lars or not as she accompanies him on dates. Brain: introduced during the second year, Brain begins to reveal Lars’ inner dialogue and source of anxiety. Heart: a later addition to the cast, Heart balances the superego-inspired Brain with his optimistic, Id-like approach to the world, acting more on emotion than societal constructs. Gallbladder: an infrequent, but incredibly popular character, Gallbladder happily “maked” stones for the liver, only to be rejected. The ensemble of organs and objects: an ever-growing cast of organs and objects fills the microchasm within Lars’ world with conversations between Stomach, Tongue, Tooth and many others. Most of these characters recur from time to time.

Bloom County, a 1980s cartoon-comic strip that dealt with socio-political issues as seen through the eyes of highly exaggerated characters (e.g. Bill the Cat and Opus the Penguin) and humorous analogies. Creator Berkeley Breathed's first regularly published strip, Academia Waltz, appeared in the Daily Texan in 1978. The strip attracted notice from the editors of the Washington Post who recruited him to do a nationally syndicated strip. On December 8, 1980, Bloom County made its debut and featured some of the characters from Academia Waltz, including former frat-boy Steve Dallas and the paraplegic Vietnam War veteran Cutter John. Bloom County earned Berkeley the Pulitzer Prize for editorial cartooning in 1987. The strip eventually appeared in over 1,200 newspapers around the world until he retired the daily strip in 1989, stating, "A good comic strip is no more eternal than a ripe melon. The ugly truth is that in most cases, comics age less gracefully than their creators". The comic continues in recirculation on GoComics!
