Jenny Nowhere

Real Name

Jenny Nowhere

First Appearance

"A Damn Fine Hostile Takeover" part 2 (Oct. 1, 2010)

Created by

Nelson Evergreen and Joe Macré


The name "Jenny Nowhere" should be available for anyone to use in any way they see fit... but the character herself is a blank slate. How she looks, how she dresses, her character quirks, what her agenda might be - it's all up to the individual who wants to do something with the name. Anyone can create their own Jenny Nowhere from the ground up.

To paraphrase from The Webcomic Beacon Podcast Episode #20, Nelson Evergreen has suggested much of the following:

"We'd imagine that - whatever she is - she functions in some way as a "prime antagonist" to Jenny Everywhere; the yin to her yang and all that. This can obviously work in all sorts of ways. I like the idea that, in each universe, there's a Jenny Everywhere who's recognizably Jenny Everywhere in name, character, and appearance...and somewhere in each universe, there's a Jenny Nowhere who's recognizably Jenny Nowhere in name only."

Maybe creators should be encouraged to come up with a Jenny Nowhere that actively avoids comparisons with existing versions of the go out on a limb and make up something totally unique.

In a nutshell: Use the name, make up the rest. Of course, one is not required to follow the "Jenny Nowhere" name and scheme, but it should be a fun idea that people can play with.


  • Jenny Nowhere is an "Open-Source Character" and was created specifically for use by anyone. The only rule about using her is that your work must have this notation:
    • "The character of Jenny Nowhere is available for use by anyone, with only one condition. This paragraph must be included in any publication involving Jenny Nowhere, in order that others may use this property as they wish. All rights reversed."
  • Scottish indie rock band, The Clouds, have a song named after her.
