Zebra Girl

From Academic Kids

Zebra Girl is a webcomic by Joe England, concerning the adventures of a young woman who (because of a magical accident) was transformed into a demon. It debuted on May 6, 2000.

The story centers around Sandra, a girl with a cynical streak who lives with her naïve best friend Crystal and Crystal's lecherous brother Jack. Due to a mishap involving Jack and a tome of ancient evil, Sandra is transformed into a demon [1] (http://zebragirl.keenspot.com/d/20000707.html) [2] (http://zebragirl.keenspot.com/d/20000804.html). The title refers to Sandra's demonic features, which include black-and-white stripes and hooves. Less zebra-like features include purple hair, horns, a third eye in the forehead, acidic blood, and the ability to cause people (usually Jack) to spontaneously combust. It is a humor comic, but later installments have taken a more serious turn. The main comic is accompanied by a second comic, "Sandra's Journal!", supposedly drawn by Sandra, describing her everyday life and her feelings about her demonic condition.

The comic is currently hosted in Keenspot.

Major Characters

  • Sandra – A young sensible college graduate transformed suddenly into a demon. She's coping stoically, but she's not happy.
  • Jack – Housemate of Sandra. Young, brash, self-proclaimed "pervert". Haunted by guilt at causing Sandra's transformation, he's become a full-fledged wizard (Jack the Plaid) in his endeavours to restore her. Sandra's anger at him frequently sets him on fire.
  • Crystal – Sandra's other housemate. Jack's twin sister. Cheerful and pleasant, despite being a telemarketer. She seems to have subtle clairvoyant powers; her offhand comments often forshadow future story arks.
  • Sam – An embittered cartoon rabbit existing both as a fictional character in an old TV show, and as a real person that Sandra, Jack and Crystal meet in another dimension. In saving Sandra from other demons he becomes stranded in this world. He appears to be somehow connected with Sandra, sharing her soul.
  • Tomie – The sentient book of magic that causes Sandra's transformation, and that Jack studies in his search to restore her. Rather to its own surprise it has become a friend of Jack.
  • Wally – Crystal's new werewolf boyfriend. Once the lowest member of his pack, he is now trying to be human. He likes to sing Louis Armstrong and Crystal was first attracted to his voice.
