Webcomics about minority groups
March 7, 2012 1:21 AM   Subscribe

Please recommend regularly-updated webcomics that are largely about the experience of a minority group.

Nearly every day, I spend a few minutes reading through the webcomics I subscribe to on a webcomics tracker. The ones about minorities give me frequent exposure to groups that I don't regularly encounter, humanizing them (I realized this when thinking about That Deaf Guy). My daily routine might help reduce whatever implicit bias against these groups I might have. Adding comics about other groups that I might be unwittingly biased against seems like a pretty painless way to possibly better myself.

There are a lot of good LGBT comics out there; I think I'm set on those. I'd be particularly interested in comics about the Black experience, First Nations peoples, Latinos, schizophrenics or bipolar people, and the physically challenged.

How about asian? Yellow Peril is entertaining. Here's the about page.

I believe it's also syndicated, but maybe Secret Asian Man? I regularly touches on aspects of being part of a minority group in the US.

Also not really a webcomic, but maybe also Dykes to Watch Out For, though you'll have to find it in your local alt-weekly.

Oh, crud, I just read the bit about being good for LGBT comics ... oh, well, I regret nothing!

Thanks to everyone who responded. I'm surprised I got so few responses. I thought that webcomics would be a natural fit for describing minority experience.
