abrina Online

"Sabrina Online" is a monthly webcomic starring Sabrina Skunk. Sabrina the character began as an effort to create a persona very distinct from Schwartz’s previous creations, many of whom bore close resemblance to Amy the Squirrel. [Eric Schwartz. “Interview with Sabrina Online’s creator, Eric Schwartz.” "Technomages", http://jumpgate.technomages.net/ewsinterview.html (accessed 2007-01-05).] In 1996 Schwartz gave Sabrina her own comic strip, "Sabrina Online". The comic gained a wider audience when the publication "Amiga Format" started to serialize it in their readers’ letters section "Mailbag." When "Amiga Format" stopped publishing in 2000, its final issue contained a special interview conducted with Sabrina via her creator, Schwartz. [Eric Schwartz. “Just the FAQs.” "Amiga Format" May 2000: 78.] "Sabrina Online" continued, though, and in 2001 the comic won the Web Cartoonists' Choice Award for WCCA|2001|Best Romantic Comic.
