Go To


A webcomic by Jackie Lesnick.

Good luck with that! Explaining the plot is like explaining a train wreck. Not a bad kind of train wreck. Y'know, the kind of train that has lots of elephants, and puffy kitties, and weird superheroes...

A half-Dada, half-Adventure, entirely comical webcomic about Otra and Winter, two girls with more than their share of quirks who live together in the city of CuteTown. They go on adventures (for the sake of adventuring). There is a very eclectic supporting/main cast, including, but not in any way limited to: El Chubacabre (or Chuy)- a carefree, then troubled (oh handy Character Development) young man with unique women issues, Collette- a half-cutpaste videogame nerd, Policeguy- a responsible, pragmatic officer of the law and occasional Butt-Monkey, Lucy- a self-declared genius veterinarian/animal fitness trainer, Chuy's two brothers- who are attempting to get revenge for their brother (despite the fact Chuy is fine), Captain Fist - whose head is a fist - and the rest of the CuteTown PD.


An overall lighthearted comedy, it revels in its own quirky humor. There's more to it than one might expect.

The series also plays with tropes left and right, and in some very interesting ways that must be seen to be believed. It is definitely worthy of your time, and is recommended reading for tropers.

The comic can be found in its entirety right here.

What many people probably don't know is that Girly is actually a sequel to their previous comic Cute-Wendy which in turn was an alternate take on Lesnick's original webcomic and personal Old Shame, Wendy, which can be found here.

After 764 strips, the comic reached its Grand Finale, but Jackie eventually made a spinoff (set inbetween various Time Skips within the comic) called Down Together (posted sporadically in their "Extra Comics" section). Their main project for a little while was Doctor Voluptua (too NSFW to link), and they're also a contributing artist and founder of Slipshine, a erotic comic paysite, and later poured a lot of work into Princess Panic, a 2-D video game project with Paper Mario-styled gameplay in the (very) early planning stages, with some parts of the story uploaded as a comic on Webtoons. Lesnick also has a new webcomic called You Suck which can be found here.


Now has a character sheet.
