The Lovely Ladybug was originally conceived as a comic for the /co/ Comic Festival, an attempt to have an organized event to show off comics made by /co/mrades for /co/mrades. When that fell apart (the event propagator disappeared), Team Ladybug and some other contributors launched The /co/mic /co/operative to host the comics they had already made for it.
Issues of The Lovely Ladybug are included in Premier Pulp when a release lines up with the next issue. Issues are also posted on The /co/mic /co/operative as well as their webcomic website on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday update schedule.
Installments will be listed in in-universe chronological order where applicable.
