Comic Strip / Heart of the City

Heart of the City is a comic strip that has been running in newspapers since 1998. Created by Mark Tatulli, who also writes and draws the macabre Liō, it focuses on Heart Lamarr, a high energy elementary schoolgirl in Philadelphia; her proudly geeky best friend Dean, and her frequently overwhelmed single mother.

The comic, complete with archives since 1999, can be found at GoComics. (Beware of blocker-bypassing popups.)
