|Zebra Girl was a strange find for me. I hadn't really encountered a comic quite like it. But it's quite pleasant, and I certainly want to know more about what's going to happen.
Art: Zebra Girl is quite nice, in regards to art. A good level of detail, and all of the characters are distinctive-though I feel that Jack and Crystal's designs could use some retooling to look less cartoony. While I like them, Zebra Girl very quickly changed from humor to drama, and so they seem a little out of place. Sandra more than Jack, though. Sam, on the other hand, is very....very....nice. I think his design is perfect for the environment, and his facial expressions in particular catch my eye. I am occasionally disconcerted by the creator's love for contrast, though.
Characters: In terms of characters, I think Zebra Girl is very strong. Sandra, for example, has NOT just shrugged off her condition; it's still a very big problem for her to handle, and no one has just said 'live with it'. It wouldn't be very realistic, and in fact would insult me to an extent. While Jack has become more mature, he has not deviated much from his core personality-just added to it, and made it more complex. And Sam....well, Sam is one of the best anthropomorphic characters I've ever seen. He seems realistic to me, and very much understands that he is an alien to this world-even if Sandra, Crystal and Jack accept him, that doesn't mean others would. Of course, as he pointed out, they may just disbelieve him entirely. He doesn't care. And while I may have ragged on Crystal's visual design, I think she's fine as a character. Sure, she's an optimist, but not to an unrealistic degree.
Plot: While I like the plot arcs that have appeared in Zebra Girl, the change from comedy to drama was too quick for my tastes. It did take place early on, so it wasn't a major shift when it happened....but on the other hand, we had very little time to meet Sandra before she changed so drastically. I do like how Professor Broadshoulders initiates some fo the action, though-it came as a very nice surprise to me. Jack's flashback, the most recent plot arc, was my favorite by far. Though if I had come in during the middle of it, I would certainly have gone crazy with anticipation.
Writing: I like the dialogue in Zebra Girl, though there are few things that really jumped out at me. The actions, on the other hand, really stuck with me at points. I would say more, but I think that the art is intentionally the main focus. And I think that's fine, since the writing is strong enough to support it. I do like how Sandra's situation has been handled; the audience knows as much as the characters do. Which amounts to "She may be able to change back, but there's nothing definite." If I ever see a comic wher some mysterious figure talks about how to cure her, though, I will be greatly disappointed.
Overall: I would like to see more from Zebra Girl, because I really enjoy it. But I think that it needs to start working towards an answer for Sandra soon, or else it may start to drag. I don't think it would personally, but it's a risk. Overall, I give it 8 out of 10. It's a good comic, and I don't see any glaring problems. But it could improve still.
