"With its shoujo style, enjoyable characters, light-hearted tone and relaxed pacing, you’ll feel as if it came straight from the manga shelf!"
- MCMBuzz Magazine
"Reading this lovely comic brought me back to the days when I used to subscribe to comics like Sailor Moon. Altar Girl does an excellent job of making fun of the shoujo genre while still maintaining a high level of respect for the sources of its inspiration. This webcomic’s well-paced humor, expressive characters, and pretty page layouts make this an entertaining read."

Altar Girl is a webcomic that ran from July 2002 - December 2004. It was hosted on Keenspace (now known as ComicGenesis) and updated three times a week, one page at a time. It was frequently #1 at the Top 33 Online Manga, and remained in the Top 20 Keenspace comics for it's duration. It was even featured in an article for the University of North Carolina Charlotte Campus "UTIMES" newspaper.
Those who have read the "old version" might notice that the "new version" has been modified and tweaked here and there. Try not to compare them too much. This is still the same story, just with the benefit of hindsight.
This comic is released online in multi-page updates so you're getting more at the same time. You might even find it's easier to keep track of the story compared to other comics that update only 1 page per week!
There is no set schedule, but Altar Girl updates with something new at least once a month. You can get weekly updates, new art, mini comics, and other fun stuff when you Follow Altar Girl on Tumblr and Like Altar Girl on Facebook. Oh yeah - don't forget Twitter and Pinterest!
Oh excuse me, how rude! My name is Kata. I live in Baltimore, MD with my husband Ned, our cute baby boy, and my doggie Tifa. Drawing this comic has been my dream for a very long time. I hope to conclude the story for everyone who was left hanging back then, and for new readers, I really hope you enjoy this comic from a whole new perspective. Your kindness and support means everything to me!
