YMMV / Zebra Girl

  • Archive Binge: The webcomic started in 2000. The update schedule varied a lot, though the autor has been keeping a weekly one for a while now (with the comic updating Saturday). The comic has over 600 strips worth of content, if not more, if you take into account the tendency of the author to regroup his strips, which means that there are actually more strips in total.
  • Epileptic Trees: One need only read the fan forums to find a veritable epileptic forest concerning such matters as the true nature of Mr. Chalk, the final fate of Tool, the reasons behind Sandra's Face–Heel Turn, etc.
  • Growing the Beard: The story took a more interesting (and darker) turn when Sandra decided to give in her demonic urges and turned against her friends. Starting with the Earthbroke arc (november 2007), the subsequent arcs (The Dawn of Night, Disaccord, Sandra in the Outlands and Heaven on Earth) only improved the comic further, with better writing, character development and gorgeous art.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: Sandra calling sarcastically Viv "mother" in this strip. Well, when you realize that Viv is in fact Eve, and is, technically, the mother of all humanity...
  • Ho Yay: Crystal and Sandra deeply care for eachother. In fact, it was pointed out to Sandra that she may have romantic feelings for Crystal, even if she doesn't want to accept it.
  • Iron Woobie: Jack, who takes his failures as a need to make the world better at his own detriment, and eventually exiles himself into living in homelessness at some point during the Earth-years that Sandra's been in the Subfusc.
  • The Woobie:
    • Sandra becomes very depressed following her transformation into a demon. She is unable to go outside or socialize, and withdrew into herself as a result, was twice the subject of an attack because of her demonic nature, and hasn't talked with her mother, whom she is very close, in years. When Gregory tried to drag her to hell with him, she snapped.
    • Crystal, full-stop, when Sandra turns evil, terrorizes the whole town, and physically and mentally tortures her and her friends. Her inability to stop Sandra, who she still considered as her best friend until her "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight (which fails miserably), completly breaks her.
    • Mabel. The little girl is lost in the Subfusc, a dreamland where she doesn't belong, and doesn't remember who she is. Her mind seems fractured, and she is just a frail and fragile human being surrounded by mythical creatures who can overpower her with little efforts. If not for benevolent beings such as Viv and her own luck, she would have died long ago.
