Kindred Spirits in Middle School

Sara Goetter participated in 24 Hour Comics Day and produced a story about two geeky girls who find each other in 7th grade. They are both going through the agony of puberty: Joanna is short, a bit overweight, and has a volatile temper, while Penny has acne and a unibrow and suffers from crippling shyness. They become friends over their shared love of anime. The 18-page story will remind you of the horribly awkward process of growing up, when making friends was difficult but having friends was crucial.

Goetter says these characters will return in a new strip she’s developing. I’ll look forward to seeing more of them. -via Metafilter
