Lackadaisy is a historical fiction webcomic by Tracy Butler that began in 2006.


The comic follows the colorful cast of people associated with the ailing Lackadaisy Cafe (and speakeasy) in 1926 St. Louis as they try to reverse their business fortunes and compete with rival gangs.

Although all characters are drawn as anthropormorphic cats, the comic is very detailed in its historical portrayals, and in the page notes Butler will often explain historical slang and technology being depicted.
