The very last update of "DAR: A Super Girly Top Secret Diary Comic
" by Erika Moen arrives today after six years online. As Erika explained in her recent announcement
of the strip's end:
My very first DAR! strip was drawn in October 2003 and then made it online sometime not too long after that. That means I've been working on this project for about six years now. It started my sophomore year of college as a 20 year old student and has seen me through my first love, finding my queer identity, my first heartbreak, my first rebounds, traveling to another country, depression and medication, having stupid adventures, meeting the man I'd eventually marry, re-structuring "my identity", graduation, working in the real world while struggling to keep making art which brings us to today where I'm a 26 year old self-employed happily married woman. Oh, and I guess there were some dick 'n' fart jokes in there too.
While we'll miss the wonderfully awkward, sexy, TMI joys of "DAR," Erika will soon be moving on to as-yet-unannounced new projects, and also has stores
of wonderful stuff
and a "DAR" book collection for sale, with a second volume coming out in 2010.
