Comics by StrangelyKatie

Here you will find a selection of comics created by Katie O’Neill (StrangelyKatie). Though many of them are fairly old work now, I thought I’d leave them up for people to read – especially Princess Princess in its original webcomic form.

You can also read my current webcomic, The Tea Dragon Society, view my portfolio of latest work, or gain access to sketches and behind-the-scenes updates on Patreon!

Counting Stars

(January 2012)
Though a little dated, this was my first finished comic and the online response to it remains a huge source of happiness to me. Hundreds of people contacted me to tell me they understood its meaning and that it brought them comfort or hope. Loneliness is something many of us relate to, and the desire to simply have one person to help us through the hard times.
