Out at Home is a webcomic by Alex Wendzel that started on November 19, 2008. It started as a family Sitcom-style strip, but morphed into a comic about High School-aged Kate Beckett (Not this one) and her best friend Penny O'Brien. The comic combines slice-of-life dialogue and attitude with outlandish, outsized situations and gags. Most of the strips fall into story arcs, sometimes with added audio or video content. Each arc is separated by one-off gags. Better Than It Sounds, or at least different, as it rarely if ever delves into the emotional and relationship drama featured in most webcomics about teenagers.
