"Oscarina," by Carolita Johnson, who is also a New Yorker cartoonist, is a roughly three-times a week-ly cartoon that is not for kids. (Not for most kids, anyway!) She is the result of years of childhood puzzlement, middle school marginalization, and a decade or so of living abroad, a few years of which were spent studying Structuralism, Medieval Anthropology (specifically researching the menstrual habits of medieval nuns, if you need to know), and Womens Studies. All this will eventually come out in Oscarina in one form or another.

Oscarina sometimes appears on the Huffington Post's comedy site, when the material is news-related.

She also appears on her own Facebook site.

Thank you, and good night.
