Guilty on most counts. But I must add my own caveats to some on the items:
have complicated personal relationships(and this may well be what 50% of the entire comic revolves around)
This is true of all good literature. Otherwise all you've got is pop-fiction or a fantasy comic book.

That's because they know at some level that the normal "care free" people are dishonest with themselves. These "care free" people are the same ones who try to run you off the freeway if you are going only 5 mph above the speed limit and yell at baristas if the latte' they ordered isn't perfect.
It is jealousy, but the only enviable thing is the money they have

This is a perinneal (sp?) theme of literature, both good and bad.

Not me! I was a shitty artist in high school although half my classes in the 11th & 12th grade were art classes. Now I'm a shitty comix artist who learned out of a Manga instruction book I bought at Borders.
None of my characters will be in school. They will either hold jobs or be useless and/or malignant wankers. But then, most of my comix are going to be one-shot stories. Unless the gods grant me a burning passion to create and update a saga on a regular basis.
