As regular readers of this blog already know (apart from the fact that they represent what the Sierra Club considers an “endangered species”…), this blog recently celebrated the fact that the Millenial cartoon strip “My Cage” by Ed Power and Melissa DeJesus, has recently resumed publication via the website Patreon.com.
Just to rehash a synopsis from my earlier post:
Norm, the central character, is a frustrated screenplay writer and all-around Millenial geek, employed at McGuffin, Inc.
He’s married to the love of his life, Bridget, who happens to be a dog (literally,) and they’re pregnant.
Norm has a pet amoeba, named “Squishy.”
His co-workers include Maureen, a gold-digging female fox, Ashley, a bisexual goth bengal tiger who’s long been his “office spouse” and Violet, a bitter chihuahua receptionist who’s married to another co-worker who’s a typical “man’s man” Doberman Pinscher, full of empty male bragidoccio.
Max, the office manager, is a satanic terrier who enjoys his martinis so much he prefers them to work…
At the time of my earlier post about a week ago, I promised I would occasionally post a few samples of their work. This is one of those occasions.
