Postcards from the feminine universe, chronicles of indifference in love and other worlds …

With her refreshing comments on younger women’s conflicts in the era of e-mails, text messages and Facebook, Ofelia is the new heroine of the comic strip. In nine small images per page she tells us a whole story: Be it lovesickness, self-esteem or the imponderable ways of life, Ofelia will surprise us and make us laugh with her very real existential dilemmas and her audacious vision of herself and the world around her.
