Jennifer Boeke is the cartoonist who creates Catharsis. Catharsis is an anthropomorphic (animals that are attributed human-like qualities), serial strip that follows the life of a woman named Gwenivere Ivy Dahlgren and her strange collection of roommates. Gwen was originally in a relationship with a guy for whom she moved away from the big city, to a quiet suburban town. Not long after she moved, she ends up being dumped by the very same person who she moved to be with. This didn’t really leave her alone, as she always was with her stalwart companion, a Labrador-sized dragon named Rremly. Rremly was the runt of a clutch of dragons that was hatched over 400 years ago, and not long after he hatched, he was sent off to live in a castle, as it was the custom at the time. Rremly wasn’t so much used for his dragon prowess as he was more used as a playmate for the princess. Rremly grew up with the princess, and developed his loyal and carefree personality, which he maintains to this day. He continues to act silly and impulsively for the amusement of Gwen, as she is easily in touch with her inner child and can romp with Rremly whenever real life doesn’t intrude on their time together. On a whim, Rremly “adopted” a squirrel named Baxter, who continually puts up a sour front, in spite of which has come to care for his newfound friends, even if he doesn’t show it often. Of course Baxter has to be careful of random biting attacks from three sentient balls of dust named Romulus, Remus, and Bitey, or from stealthy ninja attacks from the newly acquired kitten named Aya.
Emily Ryan is the cartoonist for Corner Alley 13. Corner Alley 13 is a serial strip that follows the lives three residents of Corner Alley, Greycity, USA. Greycity is a teeming metropolis similar to most major cities, and like most places, is teeming with the relatively recent additions of non-human residents. In a span of three months, humanity was shocked to find out that all manner of supernatural and fantastical creatures (such as dwarves, trolls, elves, and faeries) exist. Even more to their surprise, humans have found that these new races have found new homes and hope in the human cities of earth. One such newcomer to Greycity is an elf named Noelle Manchides. Having left her homeland of the Elven Republic (no human really knows where that is), she has become a US citizen, and finds life among the humans very satisfying. Being a sort of aficionado on human society and culture, she enjoys emulating human styles (clothing, food, hairstyles, etc.), and hopes to rise in human society. Currently she is struggling against the current system, as humans see the other races as either equivalent to monkeys or questioning their existence in the first place. She doesn’t lose hope, but she does need to vent from time to time as her temper flares. She frequents a particular bar (Corner Alley 13) down the road from her house, where the bartender serves a peculiar memory-inhibiting beer. Disgusted each time she arrives, she always seems to forget that she has been there before. It’s here that she meets two people who are about to be entangled into her life: a shrewd dwarf named Dusty Sturdy Stonebriar and a naive faerie named Rosie. Rosie, being a newcomer to Greycity, had her luggage stolen when the first arrived, but was “fortunate” enough to meet Dusty, the self-proclaimed ruler of the area. Now Noelle has to find a way to get rid of these new problematic people as she strives to achieve the prestige and wealth she feels she deserves.
Michael Terracciano is the cartoonist who creates Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire. Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire is a serial strip that follows the life of a seer named Dominic Deegan. At an early age Dominic learned that he had the power to see the future, but he soon learned that this made him special, yet an outcast at the same time. As he grew up, Dominic uses his gift of second sight to divine futures for money. This has probably made him a little cynical; as many of his customers ask him questions they probably could have answered on their own. At times his second sight works without his prompting, showing him visions of an unaltered future (meaning that he could still change it if he wished) that might be of importance to him. It's through these visions that he becomes entangled with another lonely soul by the name of Luna Travoria. Luna was born with slight tusks, a rare human birth defect, indicating that orcs were located somewhere in the Travorian bloodline. This constant reminder of a secret shame, coupled with the fact that her mother prided herself on being the fetching beauty with lovely daughters, prompted Luna's mother to enact a terrible plot. If Luna would end up killing herself after a visit from a Royal Knight of Callan, then the Callanese government would owe Luna's mother recompense for the death of her daughter. Her plan of belittling and diminishing her daughter's self esteem almost worked, if not for the timely intervention of Dominic. Dominic not only foiled Luna's mother's plot, but also managed to save Luna's live twice in the process. Perhaps sensing a kindred spirit, or because his second sight lead him to her, Dominic allowed the now abandoned Luna, to become his apprentice and help him in his theories of magical research. Now they travel together, their lives enmeshed with one another, as they continue trying to find a place of peace and quiet, but only if Dominic's visions will allow him to do so.

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.

Slick is a self-proclaimed pimp, but finds that he has difficulty convincing all of the women he meets of that fact. Of course, this doesn't mean that he is after all of the women he meets, but only the attractive ones. Slick constantly sings his own praises and usually ends up driving the object of his affection away. Monique, on the other hand, does not have a problem finding guys, but rather her problem is finding someone that she likes, who will dote on her every whim, is financially secure, and is a genuinely nice guy. Unfortunately for her, most of the guys she likes are either taken or are full of themselves, so she spends a lot of her time hanging out with Slick. Monique has no interest in Slick as he is, but usually finds that she has nothing better to do. Slick also hangs out with his assistant Criminy and his comrade-in-arms, an anthropomorphic (animals that are attributed human-like qualities) pig named Squigley. Criminy helps Slick keep track of his appointments, the tracking patterns of hot women, the list of women who turn him down, and various other menial tasks. Criminy doesn't seem to mind, as he sees Slick as sort of an ideal version of what he would like to be. Squigley, on the other hand, shares a lot of Slick's attitude towards women, but without any of the charm. He prefers to believe that a man should act as a man, and not have to primp or preen in order to impress a woman. Of course, since Slick and Squigley's methods haven't worked yet, Slick is open to other ideas and options.
Pete Abrams is the cartoonist who creates Sluggy Freelance. Sluggy Freelance is a serial strip that follows the lives of two friends, Riff (Riffington) and Torg.

He has difficulties with his mother, a famous talk show host who goes by the name of Dr. Lora, who takes out a lot of her personal anger over her divorce on her callers, often breaking them down to tears. Torg loves to sit back and take life as it comes, treating every day like he used to as a child, fully enjoying life. He prefers to not work, but does have the necessary skills required to be a web designer, and sometimes offers his services over the Internet. Torg really is the last person who someone can call as being responsible, but lately the rest of the housemates have noticed a distinct change in Torg's demeanor, due to his experiences in an alternate reality. The source of a lot of Torg's change is one of the other housemates and his good friend, Zoë. Zoë is practically the sole source of reason in the household, as she finds that Torg and Riff's schemes are often silly or ill conceived, and she often has to bear the brunt of the financial responsibilities for maintaining the house. Torg and Zoë have developed a close friendship that could blossom into romance if they could have a sane moment together, and provided that Torg didn't do something to ruin the moment. Gwynn, the other human roommate, is a practicing witch, through the book of E-Ville, a terrible book that she promised not to work with, but hasn't strictly enforced. Since a lot of accidents end up coming her way, she takes out a lot of her anger on Torg and Riff, but can usually be mollified through bribes of video games. Kiki (a hyperactive anthropomorphic ferret with a problem keeping her mind on something for a long enough period of time) and Bun Bun (an often psychotic, switchblade-wielding, anthropomorphic mini-lop) usually also reside in the house, often causing their own brands of trouble.

He has the ability to find the good in most people and focus on that aspect, assuming that everyone likes him, and that they are all good friends. He relies on Boardy for the majority of his needs, and spends his time seeking things that he enjoyed in his childhood or having Boardy cater to his every whim or fancy. Boardy has no memories of his past and is constantly trying to find out who and what he is. Unfortunately, his search is often interrupted by the constant demands that Chris has of him, but doesn't mind helping his friend, since Chris did find and help him when he needed it. Chris's brother, Bobby, is about the exact opposite of Chris. Bobby is constantly irritated with his cheerful brother and despite any threats of violence or verbal abuse; Chris still sticks with Bobby, much to his annoyance. Bobby hates about everyone and everything, but constantly attempts to concoct plans that will enable him to take over the world, so he could run things his way. Chris's fiancé, Arcadia, is a kindred spirit and shares his childlike innocence, but loves being a lawyer. Arcadia caters to her brother and grandmother's wishes, but rebelled against their decision and decided to marry Chris. She enjoys going on Chris's wacky adventures as typically they are exciting, and usually nothing bad happens (thanks to Boardy's constant vigilance).
