Least I Could Do

Ryan Sohmer and Lar Desouza are the current cartoonists who create Least I Could Do, while Chad WM Porter and Trevor Adams are the former artists who worked with Ryan on Least I Could Do. Least I Could Do is a serial strip that follows the life of a writer named Rayne Summers. Rayne believes he is God’s gift to women, and frequently feels the need to share his gift with them. Aside from the pursuit of getting laid, Rayne spends a lot of his time scouting out new conquests and playing pranks on his friends. Rayne hates the idea of a continuous relationship, and for now plans on being a bachelor on the prowl until he dies. Rayne continues to chase his best female friend, Isse Alie, as they have been friends for years and she has been the one woman who he hasn’t been able to sleep with, not that he hasn’t tried. Isse prefers to keep Rayne as a friend, but seems to be secretly in love with him (due to the similarity of men she dates), but doesn’t want to ruin their friendship. Rayne rooms with his friend, John Gold, an elementary teacher, who is almost the exact opposite from Rayne. John seeks a long-term, stable relationship, and his sudden statements of asking women he just met to start a serious relationship, tends to keep him single. This has caused John to become a little bit desperate to find the right person for him, but not as much as his friend Mick Alfa. Mick is a mutual friend of Rayne and John, but ends up receiving the most abuse from they guys because of his almost utter failure to even get a date, let alone keep one. A lot of Mick’s problems stem from his habit of overeating and his lack of exercise. Rob Penfeild and Noel tend to get a lot of sarcastic remarks and outright insults from Rayne as they end up spending more time with their significant others, who rarely let them hang out with their friends.

Little Gamers

Christian Fundin and Pontus Madsen are the creators of Little Gamers. Little Gamers is a strip in the gag-a-day format (having no ongoing storyline, but keeping the same characters) that follows the lives of the incarnations of the creators of the comic. Christian typically runs the comic with his poking stick and access to the scripts. He is known for his skill with Tekken and his biting political commentary about the United States. He enjoys most games (or at least making fun of them if he doesn't like them), when he can get the controllers away from Madsen. Madsen is a longtime friend of Christian, and prides himself on his pr0n (porn) collection. He even accepted his current job with the understanding that they had high-speed Internet access. Not known for his spelling, or personal hygiene, he rabidly defends his pr0n collection with his life. Fortunately for him, Marcus doesn't know too much about computers, and is slowly being ushered into the idea that the Internet has vast access to pr0n. He is an avid fan of the Final Fantasy series, and is slowly trying to fix his reputation between Christian and Madsen's ribbings, but they aren't making it easy for him. They all have to beware of the Cute Ninjas and their perchance for playing various ninja games on the Playstation 2, lest they be duct-taped to the ceiling again.

MegaTokyo

Fred Gallagher & Rodney Caston (Piro and Largo) are the cartoonists who create MegaTokyo. MegaTokyo is a serial comic strip that follows the lives of two friends, Piro and Largo.

Unfortunately, after long overstaying their welcome and spending some money they managed to get from home, Tsubasa spent almost all of his money and left to go find the perfect girl. Thus leaving Piro and Largo homeless again, but this time with their new friend, Ping, who happens to be Sony Playstation 2 compatible!

Tipper, a white and light orange cat, the youngest of the four, she is used to “benefiting” from the other girls advice, if she wants it or not! Tipper struggles through high school trying to find the right person to fall in love with, but hasn't had any luck as of so far. Fortunately, she has her sister, Snickers to help with her problems. Snickers Namir, a purple cat, is the oldest of the Namir sisters, and is one of the most levelheaded and responsible people around. She usually gets flack for sticking to the rules and tendencies toward mothering her younger sister, but she surprised them all when she married her boyfriend, Twix. Twix, a white and orange spotted cat, is eccentric in that he takes his mannerisms and manners from an earlier age of wearing tails and a top hat. He ended up taking the Namir name (much to his surprise) and moved into the Namir home when Snickers and Tipper's mother left the country on an open-ended trip. This amuses Blue Deiter, a blond cat with blue hair, to no end, because she gladly verbally spars with Twix from time to time. Blue is a free spirit, enjoying the moment, and the company of boys, but without the commitment. This stems from having come from a broken home, and running off to live with the woman she believes is her older sister. Fortunately, she has friends like Joy Satu, a formerly pink rabbit (now white), to amuse herself with. Joy loves computers, but is a shy person, as she felt self-conscious about the fact her fur would turn white in the winter. She is growing to accept this fact, but she seems to meet with several setbacks ranging from her longtime boyfriend leaving her and her friend Mallory having betrayed her. At least the others can take comfort in that she is getting better.

Ozy And Millie

David Craig Simpson is the cartoonist who creates Ozy and Millie. Ozy and Millie is an anthropomorphic (animals who take on human-like qualities), serial strip that follows the lives of two best friends, an artic fox named Ozy and a fox named Millie. Ozy is introspective, submissive, and philosophical about life in general. This is probably because of his unusual family structure, having been adopted at an early age by a red dragon named Llewellyn, whom has been his father figure ever since. The differences between Ozy and Millie are like night and day, where Ozy is passive and serene, Millie is active and rambunctious. This tends to get Ozy dragged into various tangents that Millie finds herself on. Millie constantly questions the social order, and continues to operate outside of the norm, which is fine with Ozy, since his background firmly puts him there. It's obvious where Millie gets her streak of rambunctiousness when you look at what her mom used to be like before society started wearing her down, and the fact that her father is a pirate captain. Where Ozy and Millie tend to go against society's norms, some of their friends (or more at times, acquaintances) firmly stick with their places in the social order. Avery, a raccoon, is an advertisers dream, as he follows all of the constant ads and looks at famous figures for cues on what is cool. Stephan, an aardvark, became disillusioned with the crash of the dotcoms but still struggles to show that being a techno-savant will firmly establish his popularity and financial security. Felicia, a sheep, is a typical “popular” girl, taking her cues from pop-culture, fashion, and famous individuals, she travels with her clique around the school and makes fun of those on the outside of the class social order.

Pearls Before Swine

Pearls Before Swine is an anthropomorphic (animals who take on human-like qualities), daily serial strip that follows the lives of two best friends: a rat named Rat and a pig named Pig. Rat is very enterprising, being ever on the look out for ways to get rich, meet women, and acquire fame. He feels himself as sort of an intellectual, but also feels that his plans and ideas are wasted on his friend Pig. Pig is pretty naïve, and a little slow witted, but he is quite happy with his current lot in life. Rat will get infuriated with Pig's little questions and his games with various people and objects, like his fruit club. So Rat tends to spend more and more time showing he is above those games and showing that he is better than Pig.
Penny Arcade
Mike "Gabe" Krahulik and Jerry "Tycho" Holkins are the cartoonists who create Penny Arcade. Penny Arcade is a comic in the gag-a-day format (having no overall storyline, but maintains the cast of characters) that follows the lives of two friends, Johnathan Gabriel and Tycho Brahe. Gabe is heavily into video games, and is very competitive over playing the game itself and his extensive knowledge of video games. Gabe has difficulty in controlling his impulses and can suddenly display violent outbursts when he is deprived of his precious gaming. Tycho, on the other hand, is usually the levelheaded one, and tries to keep Gabe in check, if only for his own sanity. Of course, sometimes Gabe goes over the line, and Tycho displays some of his own repressed anger that lurks beneath the surface. Gabe married Kara, who due to Gabe's influence became a gamer as well, but not to the extent that Gabe takes things. Kara usually has to be the voice of reason and remain grounded in reality, lest Gabe spiral out of control. Tycho has been married to his wife Brenna for longer than Gabe has, but Brenna doesn't really get into the games at all. Brenna prefers to do more social interaction and hang out with Kara, than spend her whole day cooped up inside playing video games. Charles (or Chuck as Gabe and Tycho call him) is the self-proclaimed Macintosh guru, who Gabe and Tycho abhor due to his elitist attitude towards PC computers, and their love for PC gaming. Charles re-styled his wardrobe and outward personality when the Macintosh operating system upgraded to Mac OS X, and now sports a sleek new look, but with a more mature nature. At times Gabe and Tycho have problems with objects gaining sentience and becoming anthropomorphic (inanimate objects that are attributed human-like qualities), such as Div (an anthropomorphic DIVX player) or Fruit Fucker 2000 (an anthropomorphic juicer), which frequently enter their home without their knowledge.

Questionable Content
Jeph Jacques is the cartoonist who creates Questionable Content. Questionable Content is a serial strip that follows the life of a music aficionado named Marten Reed. Martin is very educated when it comes to music, but he has difficulty opening up to strong women unless he is able to relax around them. Martin's timidity towards women and attraction to strong females is partially due to the fact that his mother is Veronica Vance, a famous S&M dominatrix who stared in many erotic videos. That's not to say that he is interested in his mother that way, but it did have a formative impression on him since he knew what she did for a living ever since he was a child, and thought it was a normal thing. He works in an office complex, as a office assistant (of course his business cards call him "office bitch", but his boss is just being playful), but it's a job he really doesn't like. Fortunately, he met a girl named Faye Whitaker, who he falls for. Originally from the southern United States, Faye moved north to escape from some problems in her past, which keep her on the defensive most of the time. Due to a fire at her apartment complex, she moved in with Martin and quickly established a strong friendship with Martin, but because of her past, she doesn't take the friendship any further. Faye works at a coffee shop where her boss, Dora Bianchi, allows her to vent any anger or frustration she might have on the customers, in order to keep up the ideal of aloof coffeehouse baristas. Dora immediately showed an interest in Martin (much to the secret annoyance of Faye), but has to wait for Martin to sort out his feelings for Faye, which leaves her waiting until Faye can sort through her past troubles in order to see if she has real feelings for Martin.

Usually he is only seen as a disembodied voice; Greg (the character) a fantasy gamer and sword ends up being the one the cartoonist favors (we all wonder why right? :) ) yet, ends up being the one who gets into the most trouble; Dave is a quake-loving gamer who spends most of his time honing his skills in first person shooters, and working to create the best computer system around; Crystal is Greg's (the cartoon version) girlfriend, but is not to be dismissed lightly, since she is as big of a gamer as the rest of them; Tony is a gamer like the rest, but unlike the rest, he takes old systems and makes fantastic things out of them.

Their lives are peaceful for the most part, aside from "little things" ranging from their computer calling itself Borg and trying to take over the house, to Flinthoof's pet ferrets converting their cage into a car then proceeding to attempt to take over the world, to even going into cyberspace to bring back the ferrets.

Sam tries to put up a brave front, bragging to his friends about his life so that they don't really know how unhappy he is, but Sam isn't that good of a liar. All throughout his life, Sam has been plagued by insecurities and doubts, a fact that allows him to be easily manipulated by others (such as Fuzzy). Fuzzy, an anthropomorphic (animals that are attributed human-like qualities) bear, who frequently causes Sam no end of trouble. Fuzzy is extremely impulsive and says whatever is on his mind, and most of which is not all that pleasant. Fuzzy has some psychological issues, but despite his aggressive and psychotic behavior, he really does care about Sam, even if it's because Sam is his favorite little toy. Fortunately for Sam, his coworker and former girlfriend, Alexa, tries to help Sam along. This is partially because she can see some of her own insecurities mirrored in him and partially due to her unresolved feelings towards him. The reason for their initial breakup is mostly due to Sam's resentment towards her attempts at helping him, as she did not realize that he does not truly want to fix his problems at the moment. Sam is usually blinded to the fact that others try to help him out, and casually dismisses their advice. For now, Sam is content to amble through life, wallowing in self-pity at his situation, but unwilling to try and change things, as all change is usually accompanied by some risk.

Fallon Young is a former secret agent, who was not very good at completing all aspects of her job in a quiet manner, but generally got the job done. Her life tends to be far more action-packed than those of her friends, and she ends up spending a lot of her time off in other countries. Ryan Beckwith enjoys life as a professional slacker, a trait that rubbed off on him some from his father, who was grooming him to become "the king of the tramps" and live a hobo's life. Having turned his back on his father's wishes, Ryan spends a lot of time with his friends, as he struggles to find meaning in his life. Shelly Winters was the former mayor's secretary, and due to his peculiar nature and various neurosis, Shelly was able to run the whole city with an iron fist. This posed a problem if and when she got drunk, as a lot of her pent up aggression would come streaming forth, and cause embarrassments in public. In recent years, Shelly has had a number of brushes with death, and successfully faced her greatest fear in order to be able to return to the land of the living. Amy Chilton is the daughter of Len Pickering, the former editor and owner of City Limit.

One of Galasso's favorite employees, Ethan, on the other hand, humors his boss's quirks and rants, because it has been his dream to work in a toy store since he was little.

She has taken to befriending her fellow employee, Amber, as she noticed Amber's tendency towards being shy and introverted, and hopes to one day bring Amber out of her shell.
