Suburban Tribe is a webcomic written and illustrated by John Lee. It was launched in January 2003. The comic alternates between story arcs that further plot and character development and stand-alone jokes. The comics tend to be relatively risqué, with bodily functions and sex often part of the humor. The longer plot arcs focus on the characters' love lives (usually failures), the frustrations of the corporate workplace, and the rivalry between Dave and Caesar, a super-intelligent cat. A printed volume of the comic was released in May 2006. Lee originally tried to have the comic published in newspapers, but all five comic syndicates rejected it. A local newspaper ran a story on Lee and his comic in June 2006, and this was followed by an interview with a television outlet.
