In 2009 during the Health Care reform debates, Derek Maune and I started a daily one page editorial cartoon that ran Monday through Friday for 100 issues. We were one of the few liberal cartoons on the block, and our cartoon was often given space on and upvotes on various political websites at the time, as well as having a following on twitter and being a part of a network of other, less political, webcomics. The cartoon distinguished itself by not turning people into charicatures and avoiding what were, especially at that time, very racist undertones in the cartoons of the day. Instead, Girl vs. Robot portrayed public figures as they were and used other cartoon methods to make points about the situations at hand.
