Girlamatic, published by Joey Manley, was a member of the Modern Tales family of subscription-based webcomics "magazines". Girlamatic published comics with a particular appeal for young adult women by both female and male creators. The site launched on March 31, 2003 with Lea Hernandez as its original editor; Lisa Jonté became the site's new editor on October 1, 2005.

The site was redesigned and relauched with a new business model in 2009 under editor Diana McQueen.[1] After a hiatus from July 2011[2][3] to April 2012[4], McQueen promised new content. However, after Joey Manley's death in November 2013, the site announced it would officially be closing its operations. Extant webcomics continued to be updated by their creators through November 2015,[5] and the domain name expired as of September 2016.[6]
