Dumbing of Age (2010-present; updates daily)

Written and drawn by David Willis

The first year of college is an important, transitional, and often angst-ridden time of one’s life. Veteran web cartoonist David Willis uses characters from his previous webcomics Shortpacked, It’s Walky, and Roomies to tell the story of large ensemble cast of students (mostly freshmen) at Indiana University, which happens to be Willis’ alma mater. The protagonist is Joyce Brown, a fundamentalist Christian (loosely based on Willis around that age) who is starting to find out that not everyone is like her. Willis avoids making her a straw woman by giving her a cheery personality that matches her wide, blue eyes and having her grow and develop throughout the series, especially recently when her best friend from home is kicked out of her Christian college for being a lesbian. She begins to overcome her homophobia and realize their friendship is more important. »
