I Drew This (politics, 2004-2008) (136)
Ozy and Millie (2183)
Raine Dog (4)
Slacker mice (3)”
Wow, 2183 comics?! I didn’t realize that there was so many pages… Read it a few years ago. Loved it when Isolde ‘tailed’ the bully. 😛
I need more milly!
she makes my childhood happy
and my inner sociopath too
A haiku genius
Has walked into the pine trees
Making us all weep.
A haiku genius
has now left us all alone
we shall mourn her loss
A haiku genius
Lives on in all of our hearts,
The Eternal Child.
This is for bitflipper.
A haiku genius
We found ourselves then as now
A haiku genius
We shall miss you.
Nothing is truly gone.
Who knows what the future will hold?
why have you left us
ozy millie we’ll miss you
now you made me sad
Like Calvin and Hobbes
Some children must remain young
And go exploring
Even as those who keep
Their stories in their pockets
Go on with growing
Has left with a
Thousand friends waiting
For her eventual return.
I enjoyed this comic series very much and enjoy humor such as this and the story to it too. Hard to believe that it ended in 2012. I wish i came across it sooner. I am eager and await for Dana’s return of Ozy and Millie. Will they return? I really hope so. The. are one of my favorite characters and comics!
I hope you come back and do more soon. It’s been almost 3 years now.
It’s been 3.34 years to be exact. http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=December+23%2C+2008
This is how we know just how beautiful this comic was. Years later we still come back.
We now approach 7 years, with the odds of a continuation vanishingly remote. However, Dana has gone on to create new comics, such as Marigold Heavenly Nostrils (Phoebe and Her Unicorn to those newer here), which are worth the time to read.
And yet, I find it hard to make the transition. This comic hit me the way a good book does, and it hurts to see it end.
And now, it’s been 6.95 years! It really does hurt to see Ozy & Mille end!
I found this over 10 years after it came out, and I still wish for a continuation
nearly 11 years now. please make at least a few more?
More than 12 years. !@. YEARS. Why can’t you capitalize numbers?
Marigold, I can! XII Anni (and counting)
I found this webcomics few days ago, and I think its great! Please, come back to it! I would really want to see younger characters more mature (or, frankly, how they don’t grow up, despite their age). And you presented world problems in such funny way, too.
Hello comment from 2011! I’m from 2021 and just discovered this as well!
I read a bunch of these back when you were first doing them, but when I got caught up, I forgot about the site rather than come back to it daily, I definitely missed out though, back then I always had a feeling you’d have those two get married, and it’s a cute strip to out on, definitely worth the read
Sooo can milly go bald every year now too?
She already transferred the curse onto herself, remember?
I think you should do one where Ozy & Millie meet the kids who live in Gemstone Estates. (better known as the cast of Precocious. http://www.precociouscomic.com/ Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if Mille and Autumn were related.)
I discovered this a couple weeks ago and just now got through reading all the Ozzie and Millie comics from 1998 to 2008. The whole thing was really endearing and funny. Bravo.
I have strong impression you were inspired in some sort by Moomin Troll?
These characters and atmosphere seems very familiar
(huh.. last time I read those books was like 8 years ago 🙂 )
This series is AMAZING!!!!! I hope that you get back to it as soon as possible!
I found this two or three days ago via Sandra and Woo, and I have to say it was absolutely beautiful in the time it took me to catch up. I was a little surprised when the adults started exhibiting lovelike behavior, considering I kinda liked the idea of the kids growing up like that, but I still don’t think it could have ended on a better note.
Here’s hoping you end up coming back to us one day.
This comic is older than I am. LOL! I thoroughly enjoyed it, your fan number will continue to grow, weither you are here or not. But still make more, pweese?
I think this is my third trip through your archives. Now I just have to get my boyfriend reading it. Luckily, he thinks he’s a dragon already. 🙂
love the comic hope for more soon
Hard to believe its been over 4 years since the amazing end to Ozy and Millie. I remember reading this comic way back when it was still updating. Out of curiosity last week I decided to check for any updates and ended up re-reading the entire thing. Ozy and Millie was a humorous, touching, intelligent and very well drawn comic. I absolutely loved every strip, and really wish there were more. However, I understand the need for an artist to move on and expand to grow and improve themselves and their work. Look forward to checking out Heavenly Nostrils when it launches and seeing how far your work has evolved. And maybe one day we can come back to Ozy and Millie together, as old friends.
i discovered your comic 2 days ago, i am now late on my own comic. whoops. totally worth staying up for 38 or so hours straight. kinda sad it’s over now, it was a great read, i’m happy you gave it a real (but open ended) ending, and i do hope you come back to it, it’s a wonderful, and silly story, with quite a bit of inteligence strewn about. thank you for this wonderful read.
This has been an awesome read, I’m actually kinda glad this one has an ending, it’s been long coming, and very satisfying to see through to fruition. I dare say I enjoyed it more than Calvin & Hobbes, despite some of the influence being draconically apparent :p.
I will be watching this space, it was a thrilling read.
I discovered this strip through Sandra and Woo just a few days ago. I have spent those days going through the entire wonderful archive. I sincerely cannot believe that this strip was never syndicated! I am following Heavenly Nostrils and agree that it is cute, but this strip is awesome (to quote my kids) and I pray that you will return to it one day.
There is a dearth of intelligent comics and you really need to provide this service. Love to you (and Ozy, Millie and the rest).
I thought it’d be weird to post on something that was made four years ago… but there’s a post just five days ago, so it’s all good. :3
Anyways, this is my second time reading every last strip of this, start to finish (not on one sitting, though I did get through a year or two’s worth in this one. Been up for about 6 hours).
There’s something to like about all of these characters. If this got restarted, I’d follow it fervently.
Let this not follow the poem “Ozymandias.”
“Ozy and Millie” FTW!
Peace out, fuzzballs~ May your further adventuring be as weird and as wonderful as your past shenanigans. Much love <3
am i the only one who actually wishes that millie and ozy were dating
After having read “Heavenly Nostrils” for the past few months, I searched for other things you created, Dana, and I found “Ozy and Millie.” In the past couple of weeks, I’ve read them all and enjoyed them immensely. Thank you for giving us both of these worlds.
And it’s good to know that the enjoyment of blowing bubbles (and feeling sad for them) is a universal constant!
Great comic…while I wish for more, I understand moving on…
I really needed to read this comic throughout my years in middle and high school. I could totally relate to both characters, and I was really sad to see them go. I hope you’re happy now, and that you’ll revisit this world sometime in the future, even if it’s just sketches.
Well, I am here to thank you basically, miss Dana.
You have done a splendid job in those comic strips. The mixture of philosophy and emotions is just sweet. You have managed to achieve very accurately the feeling of the characters, and not only the uniqueness of Millie or the harmony of Ozy, but also delve inside the mind of Felicia and Avery for example, reflecting on the social pressure that kids all around the world go through and we more than often treat as “passage rites”, be them the cool kids or the marginalised nerds.
I also loved the adult characters. I would not stop being amazed at how Millie`s mother managed to overcome EVERYTIME the smartness of the little tomboy fox.
It has been a great pleasure to read all of your archive, and I hope you are well and healthy.
Yes just finished reading all of it. I love the ending still sad its ending though. I can honestly say this has been my favorite webcomic. Hope i have a son and daughter like ozy and millie someday.
Used to read this regularly years ago, and then stopped … I think during one of the long pauses. Couldn’t remember the name and have been searching for it ever since. Just found it again last week. Thanks for the story, Dana. Always loved it.
i started reading this 3 days ago and i’m sad by the fact that it’s over…Come Back Millie!! i’ll miss you Ozy!!
and to the Author…this is a job well done. i’ve never felt so Zen as when i read Ozy’s quotes, or so sane as when Millie made a decision to do anything
Well, this…. this made me think. Not only think, but feel… I miss it already, and I just finished it. It’s a fitting end, I think; I hope that other long-running webcomics can hope to end on a note like this. If the world ends tomorrow (which it won’t), I can honestly say that I’m glad I spent my last hours reading this.
I just found this web comic a coupe of days ago, and I’m really glad I did. I’m still about 10 years behind, but I’m somewhat glad because it’s the kind of written work I don’t want to end. It’s cute, yet at the same time has deep philosophical concepts, and political messages I love. I really like the comics making fun of commercialism, but to pick just one aspect doesn’t really do justice to the work; they all work well together to form a thoroughly entertaining comic strip and story. If there’s one flaw it’s that the series ends, depriving us of more hilarious antics and entertaining portrayals of the world. Of course this comes from someone who has not read through to the end. It may be that it has a fitting end and to continue would strain it. I don’t know, I simply wish to express my approval of this. In any event, I can say from what limited exposure I have to Ozy and Milli that I would love to see more, and hope that the caption about how this is, of course, not the end it true. Thanks for the laughs!
I recently finished reading through your comics. I just wanted to say they are awesome and I thoroughly enjoyed reading them. Thanks for the the deep thoughts, the social commentary, the relatable characters, the entertaining story lines, and of course the laughs!
Truly the greatest of all webcomics is this lovely comic you have created
thank for this little dream you give to us, i read it all in 1 day; iwant to say hundred of think about this coming but i think that the only that really count is THANK YOU.
I just finished the comic as its temporary end, I really like the story. It’s been a few years since the comic ended so I’m envisioning 2 things and those are Millie’s mom pregnant/with a new born fox/dragon hybrid and the kids as teenagers.
Thank you, Dana. This comic, like all good things, had to come to an end, but it was a beautiful end, and it left possibilities open. Though like all endings, it is bittersweet: Ozy, Millie, and the rest of their spectacular world can go on exploring, playing, discovering, and above all having fun, but we won’t be able to watch, at least not for a while.
But that’s okay, as watching isn’t the only way this improves our lives. In an introduction to Ender’s Game, Orson Scott Card said, amongst other things, “The “true” story is not the one the one that exists in my mind, it is CERTAINLY not the written words on the bound paper that you hold in your hands. The story in my mind is nothing but a hope; the text of a story is the tool I created in order to try to make that hope a reality. The story itself, the true story, is the one that the audience members create in their minds, guided and shaped by my text, but then transformed, elucidated, expanded, edited, and clarified by their own experience, their own desires, their own hopes and fears.” Ozy and Millie have certainly taught me new perspectives, and new ideas.
Thank you, Dana, for enriching my world.
I randomly found this comic through TVTropes. So glad I read through it all. :3
Third readthrough! This comic never gets old…
I found this 2-3 days ago through Sandra and Woo, and read it all the way through in that time. I just found it so fantastic I couldn’t stop reading. It saddens me to know that there are no more comics for me to read, and there won’t be for some time. Regardless, I plan to come back and read through the archives a year from now, when they will seem fresh and new again.
Thank you for the laughter, and the insight. I feel wiser than before having read this.
Also, I totally plan to use “you can accept the existence of rain without denying the existence of umbrellas” in conversation at some point. It’s a fantastic line, so thanks for that one too.
WHERE ARE THE NEW COMICS???? Unicorn thing updates but ozy and milly dosent!?!??!?!?!?
Ozy and Millie ended almost 5 years ago. Heavenly Nostrils is her latest work.
I know this has been gone for a long time, but I just want to thank you for those years of comics. I had been a fan for a long time, and everything about the comic, such as Millie and Ozy’s odd adventures, Llewellyn’s strange wisdom and sometimes ridiculous activities, Ms. Mudd’s clever battles of wits with her daughter, Avery’s hilarious brief-lived phases, Timulty’s randomness, and everything any of the teachers did, always made me laugh. Ozy and Millie is, undoubtedly, my favorite webcomic, and I’m glad to see that you continue to make great comics for Heavenly Nostrils.
Really, there was not a single story without a strip that makes me break out laughing even on rereading. Thank you for everything.
but… but… I wanna see ozy and millie in middle school… I wanna see felicia and millie become friends, ozy learn how to levitate… the world evolve, I want to see more crass, sarcastic political jokes (I LOVE THOSE) and of course, more cuteness. This is your best work, Dana! Please don’t give it up forever. You DID leave it at ‘To be continued” after all…
Aww.. How terribly sudden.
I do hope this is taken up again someday.. however entertain Heavenly Nostrils may be >.>
*entertaining even. Bother, sorry.
So… Ozy wears pants to bed but not outside?
NEED MOAR!!! Please continue Ozy and Millie!
Dana, I salute you for writing the best comic (in my opinion) strip I’ve ever read.
I have to say most web comics start to fall apart in the end, characters become unfunny and especially become unclassic! This did not! I loved almost all of it. There were some spots I didn’t care for. A very few, don’t get me wrong, I love the crap out of this comic! I was surprised it, for me, became funnier over the years. I doubt it will be continued but I can sure hope.
Too bad it’s over. I just read all the archives, and this was one of the greatest webcomics I’ve seen. WIll it ever continue?
I first met this strip in 1998, when someone very dear to me introduced me to it. That person left my life shortly after, and from then till now, I didn’t touch Ozy and Millie because the memories hurt badly. FFWD a decade and change, and I just finished reading this last page. Thank you, Dana, for such a truly wonderful comic. FWIW, my #1 favorite was where you showed us Millie’s #1 dream. That one will forever stick with me.
I love this comic! I only discovered it a few months ago, and it took me a long time to go through the archives, but the journey was worth it. I’m excited to start Heavenly Nostrils soon, and to see your art and writing progress.
Well, I finished it…I liked it, a lot, & I’m, just kind of, sad that it’s ended. I hate when I get emotionally invested in things because I get this weird feeling in the Pit of my Stomach when it’s over, but I wouldn’t trade this slight discomfort for all the World, though I’m going to take it over anyway. I do hope the next time I stop by there might be something new, but if not, that’s Okay, I can live on Nostalgia. That said, Farwell.
The feeling will always be attached to this comic, but we can regain the comic’s wondrous nature by re-reading it again and again.
Your artwork in this comic is amazing, Dana.
The quality of work you kept up throughout is frankly stunning.
I REALLY, really hope to see more of them. You said there will be, so here’s to hoping.
Thank you. This has been a wonderful comic. I had a dream a few weeks ago that these two were a bit older, about 15 or so, and having a philosophical conversation. It was almost as if nothing had changed, but it did feel different, and there were some changes, but…I stared and watched them. it was a nice dream. Once again, thank you, D.S.!
This took me a few days, on and off, to get through. I am glad I did. This is probably the best comic I have ever read. Certainly the best to ever reach GoComics.
I wonder if this will get more traffic now that Heavenly Nostrils and itself are on go-comics
Somehow, being able to leave my insignificant mark in the comments of this masterpiece is one of the things that I feel most glad I have done. It is works like this one that are truly magnificent. Ozy and Millie blends silliness, seriousness, and sentimentality in away that nothing else I have ever seen has. I can not possibly put into words how much this comic helps me when I am in a bad mood. Truly this is a work of art. Thank you, Dana, for your devotion to the creation of this wondrous comic. Ozy and Millie will always be in my heart.
(My inner grammar Nazi is killing me for that, but I must ignore it for now.)
This page has rather become a guestbook page, and I felt I should leave a few words. I picked this up last year, and it’s taken me quite a while to read through it, but this is easily one of the highest quality comics I’ve read. My gratitude to the author, and to them I wish harmony. When the series continues, I will welcome it. Until then, I am content with what we have.
I can imagine a tie-in to Heavenly Nostrils with an alternate-universe-with-anthromorphs-five-years-earlier-in-time, such that Dana doesn’t have to figure out how they look now. Phoebe and Marigold can come out of the other cushion in the couch.
First line: “Are you not wearing any pants?”
This comic will be with me forever. It truly shows human nature in all it’s forms, both good and bad. May it last till the end of time, for I believe that we all can learn something from the wondrous antics of Ozy, Milli, and the rest of there friends.
Thank you, Ms. Simpson, for the beautiful story and lovable characters, and thank you, Orv, for your efforts in rebuilding this site and monitoring its health.
The worst part about a great strip is seeing it end. But, that is the nature of things, I suppose. It’s been a great ride. While the ending wasn’t what I expected, it was a good one.
5 Years and 8 Days since its THE END??? I pray one day it will come back as funny and crazy out there as it was when it ended.
Thank you, Dana, from the bottom of my heart. This comic has given me no small amount of joy in the past week, as I read it from beginning to end. The characters have become far dearer to me than I ever expected could happen from a comic strip – indeed from any work of fiction whatsoever. I hope to return and re-read it many times.
Also thank you to Orv, for keeping the site going and the discussion civil, and to all the people who accompanied me through the whole comic in the comments, even if I missed most of you by several months. I hope that I might have made the journey a little less lonely too for those who come after me, through my small contributions to the discourse.
Until we meet again, my dear furry and scaly friends. May your adventures forever live on, in this end of not-ending.
Ozy and Millie
On adventures unceasing
Never leave my heart.
This is the end, beautiful friend.
Whisper-quiet, and everything in those words that made this comic so grand throughout its run.
A perfect ending, then. And, like the rest of the comic, well worthy of remembrance.
I could have sworn there was a strip at the end showing some roughly college-age character designs… Maybe I imagined that.
It does exist; it was apparently a ‘what-if’ that Dana had drawn and posted elsewhere, which was linked to in the comments of one of the strips. Unfortunately I don’t have the link, nor can I remember which strip it was linked from. Feel free to go back and look!
The thought of this comic not continuing literally made me cry, but I can see how it would be hard to pick up after years of not thinking about these characters… Thank you for sharing such a wonderful world with us all.
This has been a wonderful experience. I enjoyed reading every last strip since I started. I appreciate even more your dedication to the strip and your constant effort. You’re a great inspiration, Dana.
This is my third trip through, and it’s beautiful every time. I so very much wish you would write the comic-book format stories of them at an older age that you once suggested as a possibility, because I’d like to see them grow.
But regardless, thank you for this story.
The best advice I’ve heard in this situation: “Do not weep that it is no more, but rejoice that it was.”
God, I loved this comic.
Three years later and we’re still going back and rereading this.
This is my third or fourth read-through, and never once did I say where I found this. Upon my previous year of high school, to every single student was an iPad given. I was rather prone to using it excessively, despite there being many things blocked by their network, and I started to read a lot of stuff on TVTropes, where I happened to discover Ozy and Millie by pure chance. I kept pressing the “random page” button on their website, and I eventually found this. And despite the fact that I disapproved of the iPads we have been given, I may never have found this comic in the first place if we hadn’t. And now, I am currently completing my final year of high school, before I go on to Purdue University to study chemistry, computer engineering, meteorology, and maybe computer-aided design.
And with that note, see ya’ll later. I’m done for now, because I have many important things to do. However, be assured that I will return. The charm, beauty, and subject matter of this webcomic will surely bring me back, sometime. And maybe, when I return, there will be more. Ya never know, I guess.
Even if they’re so last year.
Awesome comic! Thanks. 🙂
Thank You Dana, for Your astonishing work, and for entertaining us all, giving me reasons to laugh, but also giving me reasons to think – about life and world in general. As once Llewellyn said, “if You focus on destination, You will miss the journey” – Ozy and Millie gave me an amazing trip while reading it from start to here, I am so glad I found them, and I am glad the last (for now) strip is just like it is. I really enjoy the characters You created, love their purity and actual intelligence, the way they see the world, and all that nonsense and absurd present in the comic, all these references to culture and society. Thank You for over two thousand strips filled with laughter, joy, friendship and love. I love it so much.
And thank You Orv, for managing this page, so we can read it all, and keeping the discussion here “high-leveled”.
I am sure to come back here some day soon, to re-read it, and I am sure to spread the word around, for more and more people to enjoy this wonderful world, so heart-touching and laugh-making
And, as the real gratitude can only be expressed in one’s native language, allow me:
Dziękuję, Dana, za wspaniałą podróż z Ozy’m i Millie, za te dwa tysiące stron wypełnionych szaleństwem, radością, śmiechem, przyjaźnią, miłością, ale też poważnymi przecież przemyśleniami, odważnym spojrzeniem na świat, oraz Twoim własnym życiem, ujętym w tą opowieść. Twoja praca wprawiała mnie w doskonały nastrój, za każdym razem, gdy ją widziałem, i ciesze się, że ten ostatni (jak na razie) kawałek jest taki, jaki jest.
Tobie Orv dziękuję za prowadzenie tej strony, segregowanie tej masy komiksów i komentarzy, oraz utrzymywanie w ryzach konwersacji.
Wrócę tu swego czasu, aby ponownie odbyć tę jedną z najlepszych podróży mego życia.
And, though I started reading old ones and going through them a bit at a time in ’07 (post date), the end. I sent a link to my father, who made 1 post, but fell in love with the characters before Llewellan showed up (he adores dragons). And now there is a Beanie Baby fox (light tan to almost be grey, and mine) sitting on the back of his limited-edition red dragon, whose name translated from Welsh to read “red dragon” so is now called Llewellan. And the 2 “complete collection” books are beside Calvin and Hobbes, Frazz, and For Better or for Worse. Well, the second is. The first is actually on my bed… Thank you Dana, from my father, who showed me you don’t have to grow up to be responsible, and from me. I am helping him care for my mother and this has been a bright spot that helped us deal with it, and some other issues, and will continue to
My favourite webcomic so far (and I read a whole bunch…god my eyes feels like they’re covered in some of Ozy’s lost fur). I’d wish to see a return here, too, but sadly, it doesn’t seem to come. I’d like to see Millie’s Mum to rule over Ozies Fuzzy butt, too =D
A great work of art, nothing more to say 🙂
(sry if the sentences are had a bad grammar…i’m a german reader 😉 on the bright side, that shows how many audience you have here)
Wait, where’s the continuation? I must have more Ozy and Millie!
Seven years later I’m still wondering whether by “more will be coming” refers to Phoebe and Her Unicorn or if Ozy and Millie will be coming back. Phoebe is funny, but I just can’t relate to it. Millie was priceless. Now after going through the entire archive, I’ve put Ozy and Millie up with Calvin and Hobbes, Bloom County and Frazz as my favorite strips all time.
I don’t know whether you’ve moved on from Ozy and Millie for good or not, but thank you for all the priceless laughs, Dana.
Ozy and Millie,
Although you may not return,
You are sorely missed.
>there will be more comics
Thank you Dana for all your effort in bringing this webcomic to life. I enjoyed reading it.
Now that I have, on to Heavenly Nostrils/Phoebe and Her Unicorn! http://www.gocomics.com/phoebe-and-her-unicorn/2012/04/22
Just finished reading through the archive for the first time, and…
Well, just “wow”. 🙂
Thank You, love. This was, is, and will always be my favorite comic, web or otherwise.
Know that if you ever revive your beautiful creations, we’ll be here, loving every strip.
Thank you, Dana, for shaping my childhood. Ozy’s smarts and Millie’s antics helped me become who I am today, and for that, I thank you.
You have my eternal gratitude.
Yours Truly and Forever
I think those that read this will find that “Telephone Line” by Electric Light Orchestra is perfectly suited for this bittersweet goodbye…
Goodbye, Ozy. So long, Millie. Someday, we’ll meet again, even if it is in our most beautiful dreamscapes…
Love the comic and have probably reread it like I don’t even remember how many times. But is it just me or was the last line changed. It used to be something like “no I would never say that”?
I really enjoyed this comic but will this comic ever get going again? I would really love to see more of Ozy and Millie.
This marks the end of my third read-through of this comic. The first was when I first got out of my parents’ house and finally discovered the Internet in 2006. The second pulled me out of a low spot during college in 2011. And this read lifted my spirits during frustrating professional work. So when I’m frustrated again by life’s troubles in 2020, I’ll be back again. Thanks for the labor of love, Dana.
And here I am having read it again during a rough year, now at the beginning of 2021. While some of the political references of the era have aged poorly, the mischief, the wonder, the puns, and the friendly lifting of my spirits have not. Marvelous.
Let’s see. It’s been 7 years since this comic ended. Ozy and Millie are now 17 y.o. Will we see them as adults in a short series in a couple of years, either as a married couple or just living together?
I WANT MORE OZY & MILLIE!!!
I do hope that she brings this back, it is very cute at times and very thoughtful, kind of like Calvin and Hobbes was for our parents or grandparents generation (no offense of course). two paws or wings or hands up (species depending).
Thank you for this comic. I understand why you stopped; an artist is their worst critic, and many artists want to be known for many things. If you only had Ozy and Millie, you’d feel unaccomplished and empty, despite everyone else feeling the opposite. I respect your choice, and I thank you for making this comic because you got me through my senior year of high school. I wish you luck on the rest of your endeavors, Mrs. Simpson.
8 years of silence
We weep, bid farewell, move on.
8 years of silence
i think its for the best…i know that dana will return with one or two strips…since she still makes some ocasional art of them or makes cameos in her new comic
But the day when one ozy and millie strip gets released its going to feel so special and at the same time nostalgic….
I don’t have anything to say that hasn’t been said dozens of times before, in every form I could think of. Ozy and Millie went from something I’d heard mentioned once or twice to being my favorite comic. I read through all ten years of comics in… what, two? three? days of “forgetting” to sleep until late became early, and the only thing I could want from this is more of the same.
Thanks so much for a decade of the best comic there is, and here’s to hoping for more.
As said before by a lot of more fortunate people that found this comic way, way before I did, this has to be one of the best webcomics I’ve ever read. It has everything and in a relatable way. maybe because the Internet is, first and foremost, the realm of dorky kids? and probably most of us were dorky kids at school? awkward teens in highschool? who knows; but I do feel missing out on this great piece of work and only finding about it a lot of years after it finished. A part of me wishes for a “second season” with older Ozy and Millie, but it probably won’t be the same. As Miguel de Unamuno once said “when the author kills a character, who can resurrect it?” (not sure if that’s the exact quote but the idea stays) “Ozy and Millie” was a part of Dana’s life, and our life too, and will remain so, but no longer a main part, rather a fond memory, that thanks to the internet we can always reread and enjoy once again.
This is a fun comic I read. One day I hope to see this as an excellent movie.
Haaaaa… Third time reading the entire comic series from the very first to the very last….and I still get a little choked up. God I wish we had more of this….I miss Millie and Ozy. Amazing comic for sure! Even better the older you get.
10 years, we return
A memory we cherish
10 years, still return.
This comic makes my heart happy. Thanks for that.
My third time too, and the first time I’ve read all the comments (including all of these). What can I possibly say that one of you other afficiandos hasn’t already said better than I could? Dana, thank you for sharing your wit and insight; Orv, thank you for making this site possible; the rest of you, thank you for being fellow travelers through this amazing universe. Oh, and I really like the real fox-type teeth. Onward to the fourth readings!
PS: Orv, maybe this page needs to be made bigger, I almost couldn’t get the “Post Comment” button onto my screen.
Wow. Took me three years nearly to the day. Back to the beginning again! A constant source of good vibes. Thank you!
NOO ITS OVER!! I thinks. I wus both hoping to reach the end and not to at the same time, I knew it wus coming but not this fast! It’s been 10 years since this strip wow!
Who knew that a random YouTube search for wut is a furry could bring me here!? Great comic, best I’ve read.
NOW WUT AM I GONNA READ!!?? Guess I could start on precocious. Just realizing now it’s precocious and not precautous! :3
May the peace be with you, Live long and prosper, don’t trip you could fall,
This post better post..
Sorry your post took so long to show up. I have to manually approve posts from new accounts, and between travel and a massive Russian spam run against the site, I got a bit behind.
Am I the only one who noticed that Ozy apparently only likes to wear pants to bed?
I have finished my first read-through of this brilliant comic.
So wonderfully timeless it is, that it can still be enjoyed in its entirety even now.
I hope very much for a continuation.
I finished reading the archive and just wanted to say that I really enjoyed this. It’s great, for many reasons, and I’m sure I will be coming back to this. And it would be really great if it would indeed be continued some day, even if not as regularly, though I know it’s unlikely after that much time. And, most importantly, thanks for creating it.
Feels bad the first time I heard about Dana Simpson was from Raine Dog, and not this great comic
Greeting from 2020. It’s been more than 11 years since it has ended, and we’re still watiting.
Good job, Dana, truly !
We… Are? Not me….
AAAAAAAAH IT TOOK ME FOREVER TO SCROLL THIS FAR.
I am still hoping against hope that there will be another round of comics. PLEASE MAKE MORE DANA!!!
12 years. Damn. I feel like i’ve given up on getting more at this point. But, hey. Who knows. Maybe we’ll see more of these guys. If not. Well…. We still have all of the comics, stored right here.
13 years… There aren’t many stories that make me keep coming back, and fewer web comics. And even though I have the books I still come back here every year to browse. I hit the random button and follow whatever storyline pops up. This time it was the wedding. I won’t ask for more because the ending was perfect. I will simply keep coming back when I need a visit with old friends.
Just finished, time to start over. 3rd time, read a couple a day. Gives me a smile. Time to buy the books
The shirt! That which does not kill me makes me stranger shirt! My 10 y/o NEEDS one…and not just with the words but with the Ozy and Millie characters! Her Dad’s can’t be passed down to her because he wore it so much thete are holes everywhere. Please make more!

This marks the end of my second time through!
Thanks for sharing these characters. Looking for more.
it’s 2022 and she still hasen’t made more comics.
This is making me sad, but I’m happy that you continue to make books!
Phoebe: MORE STRIPS! MORE STRIPS! MORE STRIPS!
Marigold: What are we doing?
Phoebe:Chanting for Dana to make more Ozy and MIllie strips
Marigold: Oh! Then I will get our friends!
Everyone in Phoebe and Her Unicorn:MORE STRIPS! MORE STRIPS! MORE STRIPS!
Phoebe: We should get some more support.
Marigold: Agreed. I will prepare the spell of crossing dimensions created by the same person.
Phoebe: What!? How am I only learning NOW you can do this!?
Marigold: You never asked *casts spell*
Ozy: Hey Millie, are you the one responsible for this giant, glowing hole in the air
Ozy: Huh. Well, I guess let’s wait and see what comes out/
*Phoebe and Marigold walk through the portal*
Ozy: Oh! You must be from the new strip!
*Millie proceeds to question Phoebe about everything in her world, and is satisfied it is up to her standards*
Phoebe:So, we came to get support for more Ozy & Millie strips
MIlle:…Wait, why not Millie & Ozy?
Phoebe: Because that’s not how Dana named it.
*Both look around, Ozy is gone*
*Ozy returns with the entire cast of O&M in tow*
Everyone in both strips: MORE STRIPS! MORE STRIPS! MORE STRIPS!
*Dana is impressed by their united effort*
*Dana makes more Ozy & Millie strips*
*Everyone reads them*
*Phoebe and Marigold have saved the day for O&M fans, and the entire universe, yet again, and still remain humble*
Thanks a lot for this webcomic. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. I was reading three months of strips a day, which made this a nice summer vacation (you do the math, please). No idea uf there will be more comics of Ozy and Millie, but there are a lot more out there on the web. We just have to look.
By the way, Ozy’s look here made me think of the Artful Dodger from Oliver Twist novel (not the furry animated version). That character was a sly trickster, like a fox. But of course, Ozy is a zen fox.
It’s been almost 14 years. Oxy and Millie are now adults and dealing with life as adults.
That may include their spouses and children.
I started following this comic back in 1998 and when it ended in 2008, I bought all the available books. Since then, every year I come back to check to see if there’s new comics to see there is none. This year, I’ve decided to leave my first ever comment to say that I loved this comic, and it was a huge part of my childhood. One day, I hope to see more. Maybe it would be suited better these days for animation, but that kind of workload is up to the author of course. I do have to thank you though for keeping up the archive so the comics can be seen. My books have all been stolen so the digitals are all I have left of this.
I discovered Ozzy and Millie maybe 7 years ago when I was going through my failed-fresh-adult crisis. I remember the wholesome-ish humor, light-hearted themes, and practical wisdom being highpoints of my day whenever I got the chance to sit down and just READ something. It helped to keep my inner child alive and reminded me to appreciate the beautiful little things of life that so many in the world consider to be worthless. Just wanted to leave this comment as a thank you, Dana. It really is the little things in life that make the biggest differences. I hope you and your family are doing well!
And I would definitely not be opposed to more of your unique artistic expressions if you ever felt like adding on to the story. Hopefully you’re not like me, having gotten to the point where drawing and writing feels like work. XD
