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?"

Liz and Sam have it all: a happy marriage, a precocious preteen son named Nate, and a house that's just the right size for the three of them. Then, Liz's parents move in. Grandpa Irv is a kindly but occasionally grumpy Korean War vet who loves watching TV, bickering over politics, and spoiling his grandson. His wife Sarah is equally strong-willed, whether urging Irv to diet, questioning her daughter's parenting choices, or finding surprising success as an advice blogger.

Can’t we all just get along? It’s not the easiest question these days. With all of our differences, it’s amazing the Earth still rotates in one direction. Out of the Gene Pool is a comic strip with characters you might recognize from your own neighborhood: hard-working dads, frazzled moms, inseparable friends, gossiping co-workers and some folks who are just plain bizarre. They manage to coexist on this big ball of dirt--one day at a time, aspiring for progress rather than perfection.

Owlturd Comix is a thrice-weekly humor webcomic which features a cute exterior but sometimes dives into dark subject matter. CAST INFO: Shen: Shen was originally the author’s self-insert character, which he used to voice all of the petty gripes he has about life. Since then, he has drifted away from the author in both appearance and personality, but still often voices all of the author’s petty gripes about life. Shen is, in short, the modern man. Life: Life is often personified as a buff dude that Shen combats on a day to day basis. So are student loans, winter, and many, many other things.

Always silly and energetic except for when it’s exhausted, which is often! Updates twice a week, typically Wednesday and Sunday.

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.
