agnostic theologians, karmically-challenged Brooklynites, female professional wrestlers, blaxploitation heroes, a Jewish girl who fights trolls, and second-class zombie hunters. And every now and then, I come across someone who goes beyond the normal ink and paper. There's the Post-It humor of My Life in a Cube and the stitch-witchery of Stricken Pot Pie.
In My Cardboard Life, by Philippa Rice, the characters aren't simply rendered in paper and cardboard -- they are paper and cardboard creatures. If paper Pauline gets a bad haircut, she can simply tape her hair back on. Cardboard Colin can change his appearance by ripping and bending his body. Characters can send themselves by mail, be held together with paper clips, and crumpled after a particularly powerful hug. Granted, My Cardboard Life isn't as tightly scripted as some other gag-a-day strips, but it's great fun to watch Rice play with her chosen media.
