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.

Behold, an un-pale horse with no name. Oh, wait. His name is Horace. And he's sarcastic. And silly. And lives in an infinitely expandable world. And sometimes gets slapstuck. And day after unpredictable day he boldly goes where no horse -- let alone a comic strip -- has gone before. Yes, there are sidekicks; a bird, a lady horse, a never-seen neighbor. And if the post-it note did not exist, Samson would have had to invent it so Horace would have yellow panels in which to play. Welcome to the bright side of the world. May the horse be with you.
Dark Side of the Horse
Julie Larson began writing The Dinette Set comic in 1990, then called Suburban Torture, offering a satire on middle class culture. The Dinette Set became syndicated in 1997. When asked where Julie gets all of her ideas, she admits there is only one way to write a daily comic: write about what you know. "I make no bones about who’s really talking in The Dinette Set," says Julie, who is writer, director and cast of The Dinette Set. "If we can’t make fun of ourselves, who will?"

Eyebeam is a strip that regularly blends the mundane with the surreal. Eyebeam is a law student, and later a lawyer, who tinkers with his time machine in his spare time.

As a unique artifact of Eyebeam’s psyche, Hank is the most private of figures, so it’s problematic when he decides to run for public office.

Meet the Deweys: Norm mows the lawn at 10 p.m. ... Claire and her punk band dial it to 11 when they practice in the basement ... Jake just set fire to the neighbor's compost heap ... and Jan is simply trying to keep up with the bills. Just another day in the neighborhood. They're the Next Door Neighbors -- stop by and say hello. Meet the Dewey family: Not-so-proud patriarch Norm works (sleepwalks through) a nondescript blue-collar job, loves beer (and cocktails) and spends most of his time in sloth-like bliss in front of the TV and parking cars in the lawn. His idea of fitness is binge-watching "The Biggest Loser." Norm's better half, Jan, works part-time, is a voracious reader, and essentially keeps everything running smoothly at Chez Dewey ... someone has to. Claire, their 17-year old daughter, is rude ... with 'tude to spare ... plays bass in a punk band, writes songs, and just wants to go on tour ... anything to get out of 6th period math class. Twelve-year-old Jake is often found sporting a D average in school, excels in advanced-placement detention, and works hard to be the bad influence to all the other kids in the neighborhood. They're loud ... they're obnoxious ... and definitely not the model family ... They're the Deweys -- and they live next door.

Reply All highlights those moments in today's information-overloaded environment when you forget your adult-self and toss the megaphone to your fifth-grade inner child. Its main character, Lizzie is a busy-single-woman-with-successful-career-in-the-big-city who has a lot of those moments. Cartoonist Donna A. Lewis, an attorney at Homeland Security, admits she "clearly needs an outlet for the stress of working in the nationâ€™s capital." Lewis taught herself to draw in law school (where doodling was the only escape from reality) and to write punch lines in the courtroom (no disrespect to judges, attorneys, plaintiffs or defendants intended). Lewis comes from "an annoyingly funny family" that provides material faster than she can "translate it into a written product." Now, she says, "The years of listening to their absurd notions about the world are finally providing value to my life." Lewis states that no family members were harmed in the creation of this strip, and some names were left unchanged in order to incriminate those deserving of such.
