Girls With Slingshots, by Danielle Corsetto

Girls With Slingshots is a great strip by the beautiful and talented Danielle Corsetto.  The strip generally centers around the life of a post-college grad named Hazel as she stumbles through job-hunting, romance, and partying.  Although once in awhile the themes may be "adultish", it's always enjoyable.  The writing is excellent, and Danielle's artwork is solid as you'll see in the gallery below.

Here's the history of the strip, as described by Danielle:

"Girls With Slingshots is the reincarnation of one of my first strips, Hazelnuts.  While Hazelnuts starred Hazel, Jamie, and Reese in their high school days, GWS follows Hazel and Jamie post-college, occasionally bumping into Reese and making room for Jameson the barista, Clarice the innocent porn store employee, and Darren the drag diva, among others."
