Cat and Girl

Cat and Girl is a webcomic by Gambrell which began in summer 1999; it is published every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Gambrell describes the subject as "a cat, a girl, and an experimental meta-narrative (sp)". Gambrell's comics (including Cat and Girl) were named as some of the best webcomics of 2005 by The Webcomics Examiner.[2]

The title characters are Cat, a giant anthropomorphic cat given to zany schemes and indulgences (particularly eating lead-based paint), and Girl, a cynical girl with a philosophical bent and a penchant for postmodernism. Gambrell insists Girl is not modeled after herself, an assertion she backs up by occasionally inserting a character based on herself into the comic. Cat and Girl mixes usually dry humor with literary allusions.[3] Secondary characters include the hipster Grrrl,[4] Boy (who fosters a secret affection for Girl), Undead Hipster (a unionized vampire beatnik), Zombie Joseph Beuys, and Bad Decision Dinosaur.
