Where to buy it


Like a potent mix of Absolutely Fabulous and Sweet Valley High, say hello to Pedigree Girls, North America's next big thing. Privileged since birth and smugly self-satisfied, the Pedigree Girls are the stars of a comic strip written and illustrated by multi-talented Montréal artist Sherwin Tjia. These strips are highly addictive, darkly funny and desperately subversive. Revelling in adolescent dysfunction and sociopathology — from snobbery and sex to fashion and cannibalism — the strips plunge the reader into the daily atrocities that make up the lives of two wicked private school girls.
