Minorities in cartoons: “Questionable Content”

June 23, 2016 Anthony 0

This week’s minorities in cartoons entry is “Questionable Content,” a webcomic by Jeph Jacques. The strip began running in August 2003, and has since become one of the more prominent online webcomics.

“Questionable Content” is a “slice-of-life” strip about the lives of a group of mostly twentysomething friends, lovers, and so forth.

Here’s what comic strips and webcomics I recommend, including classic strips (i.e., ones that’ve ended their runs). All of the strips below are available either in print compilations or have online archives. The strips range from traditional daily newspaper strips to the usual online webcomics.

Jane's World

Minorities in cartoons: “Jane’s World”

This week’s minorities in cartoons entry is “Jane’s World,” a comic strip by Paige Braddock. The strip debuted in 1998.

“Jane’s World” stars Jane, a twentysomething lesbian who lives with her straight best friend, Ethan. Jane’s shown having worked at various jobs through the strip’s run (all of them mediocre or less-than-glamorous). Much of the strip also shows Jane dealing with her love life, including ex-girlfriends, as well as a sizable cast of friends.

It’s time for another look at what comic strips and webcomics I’m currently reading. While it’s similar to my previous list of comics last fall, there have been some changes.

Note despite several below being newspaper strips, I read all of my comic strips online. I use either the Feedly RSS reader or updates via social media to keep up with my favorite comic strips.

“My Cage,” a newspaper comic strip I enjoyed in the 2000s, is now back as a webcomic. The strip focuses on the lives of anthropomorphic animals working in a dysfunctional office.
