The Devil's Panties, by Jennie Breeden

The Devil's Panties is a semiautobiographical webcomic by Jennie Breeden.  It's a fun glimpse into the life of Jennie as she stumbles through work, play, and romance.  Even with her occasional misspellings (an issue she addresses very eloquently here;  great job, Jennie!), the strip is still very enjoyable with wonderful art.

Here's the history of The Devil's Panties, in Jennie's own words:

"I wanted to call it 'Realities Victem' but whenever someone heard the title 'Devils Panties' they'd stop...... 'Devils what?!'  My friend DJ took the name from a quote from 'Miss Congeniality'.  She was going to use it for the title of her band.  She doesn't play an instrument though.

"In college, I majored in Comics, whenever something happened or someone said something funny instead of writing it in a journal I'd draw it.  3rd year of college a roommate made a comment about fan mail, I looked up 'Fan mail?  You get fan mail?!  I want fan mail!'  So he helped me put my comics up online along with his Stripteasecomic.com.

"I take everything directly from life which everyone said was a little dangerous but I sad "I use my friends as characters, how bad could it get?.....

"[name blacked out] used to be the main character she then asked to be removed from the strip.  I don't use friends in the comic anymore.  But I still take directly from life.  There's nothing more bizarre than REALITY."

There is a TON of art to display here, so here we go.

I'll start it out with the actual comic strip daily art, and then follow it with a bunch of other sketches, scribbles, inks, and prints that were sent to me by Jennie.  Are you ready?  Let's go!

 

Example of The Devil's Panties dailies by Jennie Breeden, October 8 and 10, 2001 (the bottom one is of unknown date).  These are inks over a copy of the pencils (Jennie couldn't find the original pencils), but are the original inks nonetheless.
