Continuing my campaign to expose everyone to new comic strips, I’d like to introduce you to “My Cage“, a cynical and humorous strip about a late twenty-something, Norm, who works in an office, and realizes life isn’t at all how he had expected it would be. He aspires to be an writer, but feels trapped at his job (hence the strip’s name).
The strip primarily focuses on Norm, his girlfriend, and his coworkers, though we occasionally get a glimpse of Norm’s family.
This particular strip has some of Norm’s co-workers in it, but check out the My Cage Archive to see plenty of other strips. The strip started on May 6, 2007.
My Cage – 01.21.2009
I’ve been meaning to mention My Cage on this blog, but hadn’t gotten around to it yet. Yesterday’s strip is a great example of the general humor of the strip, and I think it illustrates perfectly how many people feel. Non-conformity isn’t always particularly easy, even if it is often the best option.
