Does Not Play Well With Others (or DNPWWO for sane people who don’t want to type all that out every single time) is yet another webcomic by cartoonist and misanthrope Michael Poe. It is a slice of life comic following the lives of supernatural housemates Naga and Fran, as well as those of their neighbors (an assortment of vampires, aliens, mad scientists, and superheroes). Story arcs are short and combine pop culture with meta humor to discuss topics such as relationships, comics, gaming, and the impact of the internet on modern culture.

DNPWWO began in 2005 as a series of one-off sketches and gaming jokes featuring Naga and Fran, and then launched as an actual comic in 2011 when Poe decided he needed to be writing something funny to offset his creative burnout. Although it is not necessarily in the same continuity, it can be considered a spiritual successor to Poe’s first webcomic, Exploitation Now, as it shares the same satirical tone and references to pop culture. Poe also frequently introduces characters to the cast which he has pilfered from his abandoned ideas for other comics.
