Dawn Griffin - Zorphbert and Fred

2013.04.06 Comic Geek Speak Supershow, Reading, Pa

Zorphbert and Fred is a web-comic drawn by Dawn Griffin, which premiered in 2006. The story revolves around two aliens who come to Earth disguised as dogs to study human life. Their mission is overseen by a bossy manager in a squirrel suit. Other characters that make the strip run are a weird kid in the neighborhood and an alien diva cat. Griffin was inspired for this strip from the TV show "3rd Rock from the Sun", the cartoon "Invader Zim" and comics like "Get Fuzzy" and the classic "Calvin & Hobbes"...

Recently Griffin has added a Fanart Challenge, with readers contributing their own take on Zorphbert and Fred. Griffin has had 3 volumes of the web-strip published...

Griffin's first online comic was titled "Leftovers"...

In her bio she states being from Cleveland and a fan of Cleveland sports teams and hates the Cowboys and Yankees. I now thank her for not complaining about the Yankee hat I was wearing when we met...
