Hey guys. Ever notice how Faye and Dora are two chicks that hang out with one another? They must be LESBIANS

Well Daria has brown hair and glasses, and so does Faye. Dora has short black hair, and so does Jane.

See, Jeph has totally ripped off Daria's characters! They are so similar it is not funny! You could put them next to each other and not be able to tell them apart!

I see a slight resemblence, however I think Jeph's creations are more like the characters of the lesser known MTV animated series Downtown.....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Downtown_%28TV_series%29

Martin = Alex?
Faye = Jen?
Dora = Serena?
Jimbo = Goat?
Steve = Fruity?

It might be just me, but it's a pretty uncanny likeness!!

Jeph's not that clever.

I'm pretty sure he ripped off QC from All in the Family.

Perhaps they're actually based on The Simpsons? Marten is clearly Mr. Burns.

I assumed he originally designed the characters around modern politically correct gender stereotypes from other webcomics then branched them out from there.
