Jen Sorensen Autobiographical Profile

In college I started reading underground comics by Robert Crumb and Peter Bagge, and I was exposed to Matt Groening’s Life in Hell and Roz Chast and Tom Tomorrow for the first time. I actually wrote my senior thesis about a womens’ underground comics collective called the Twisted Sisters. One of my favorite cartoonists from this group was the awesomely funky Leslie Sternbergh, who I had the pleasure of befriending years later.

Alt-weeklies were just the place to be. I decided, well, I should start a weekly strip. That seemed like a way to get your work published regularly. So I started a weekly strip at the end of 1998. It’s now been 21 years that I’ve been doing it regularly.

I first came across Jen Sorensen’s work in Action Girl comics, which probably predated her alt-weekly strip.
