Webcomic / Girls with Slingshots

Go To

Girls with Slingshots is a Mundane Fantastic webcomic by Danielle Corsetto about the lives of Hazel and Jamie, their talking cacti, and their friends. The strip takes a lot of its humor from switching the standard gender arrangement of common sex comedy tropes.

Word of Godnote  on the origin of the strip's name is that before she started the comic, the artist would get a lot of requests to draw pictures of girls with guns. As she doesn't like drawing guns, she would draw girls with slingshots instead. In-universe, a slingshot is the name of a strong drink.

It's connected to the Walkyverse by way of Candy's friendship with Davan of Something*Positive and the mutual offspring of Sprinkles and Choo-Choo Bear, one of whom became the pet of Leslie from Shortpacked!.

Corsetto announced on 12/29/14 that she would end GWS will as a webcomic, but this would not be the last we'd see of the characters. The final strip appeared March 13, 2015. The comic was then re-released from the beginning in color, with this version referred to as "GWS Chaser"; it concluded its run on 11/17/22, with a bonus strip announcing that it would start over again. Danielle has also produced some new strips for the printed collections of the comic, as well as some material for her Patreon backers.
