Meet the Cast of C'est la Vie

Mona A transplanted Frenchwoman with a smoking habit, a bad attitude, and a fierce intelligence.
Donna Mona's flaky roommate.
Pierre Mona's brother. He's not as bad as he seems. Sometimes.
Monsieur Smokey Male chauvinist stuffed rabbit. Mona's best friend.

C'est la Vie is one of my favorite comics. Though surly Frenchwoman may not sound like a good time to you (though maybe it does? I don't know your life!), Jennifer Babcock has created a funny, sympathetic, infuriating, character in Mona Montrois, and you'll want to see all the twists and turns her story has to offer.
