Prickly City by Scott Stantis
Type: Comic Strip
Available for print / Web / mobile
Prickly City centers around the friendship between a coyote pup named Winslow and a young girl named Carmen. In the ongoing storyline, the strip offers a conservative perspective on political and social events that is especially topical at a time when Democrats control Washington.
Carmen is a feisty libertarian-conservative, while Winslow is a coyote with political aspirations. He can also be patronizing, condescending, and impulsive, and his liberal responses produce much of the strip's humor. Carmen is continuously frustrated by Winslow's assumption that she should be a liberal feminist. Through it all, though, Carmen and Winslow are friends to the end.
