8Les nombrils

Les nombrils (the bellybuttons) is a Quebec comic series. It first appeared in the humour magazine Safarir in 2004 but was quickly picked up by Spirou magazine. Even if the three main characters of this comic are teenage girls, even men will enjoy this funny and ridiculous story. The series chronicles the life of Karine (a very tall, lanky, kind, smart and hardworking girl) and her two frenemies Jenny (a redhead, shallow, self-obsessed girl) and Vicky (a black brunette also very shallow and narcissistic). Jenny and Vicky always tease and taunt Karine and always lives in their shadows. This comic does tackle important issues like family, rejection, bullying, sex, homosexuality, etc.
