The URL of the comic or site:: http://planetkaren.co.uk/
What is the comic/site about?: Planet Karen is a semi-autobiographical account following the (mis)adventures in daily life of a cute goth girl, Karen Ellis, living in Bristol UK. It starts with her decision to start a web comic, runs thru life issues like depression, art, and friends, to being forced out of her flat by a fire upstairs, finding new digs, and getting a job at a historical cemetery. The art starts out a little rough, but improves quickly to endearing.
Suitability: Teens and up – hints at adult situations, nudity, roughness
URL to a good sample comic:: http://planetkaren.co.uk/
What do you like about the comic or site?: I have to admit that I’m biased. Karen and I started doing web comics about the same time, and I’ve been host her comic on my own server for several years now. Her comic has frequently been the high point of my day.
Art Style:: B/W Line Art
How good/consistent is the art?: I’d hang it on my wall (and have)
Genre: Slice of Life

Closing/Clarifying Comments: Karen went and got a life, so she hasn’t updated in a couple of years. But she says she’ll be back. Read it through, add it to your RSS feed, send warm fuzzy thoughts her way, and eagerly wait for a new update.
