Pengboom Society

It’s been a long time since I last posted anything about web comics. (Here are part 1 and part 2 of a series I wrote a few years ago.)  But I, for some strange reason, logged on to tumblr the other day, scrolled through a few posts and found a recommendation from the amazing Kate Beaton. I checked out the site and now want to share it here!

All of the comics I mention can be found at the main site for the Pengboom Society. A word of warning: only 1 of the comics is finished (and it’s a very short wordless one) and the other two only have a little more than 30 pages each (which is not that much once you start reading!). Anyways. They’ve managed to hook me already so here’s to weekly updates!

A House Divided

Orphan Henrietta Achilles has just inherited her uncle’s mansion, an uncle she has never met and didn’t even know she had.

There are all kinds of suspicious circumstances in town when she arrives and once she gets to the house, she is met by quiche stealing brigands.

AHouseDivided3

Yes, quiche.

AHouseDivided4

There are hints about a fortune and a hidden vault and I’m looking forward to the weekly Thursday updates.

Kletschmore

It’s a bit harder to see where this one is going but here’s the official description: When man’s greed threatens their existence, the fey leave our world and take refuge in the realm of their ancestors. As the fairies rediscover the birthplace of their race, unspeakable tragedy disrupts the newfound peace: Murder. The first among fey.

So far there’s a cute enthusiastic mouse, creepily beautiful walking fungi, and a sinister, mysterious hunting party.

Beautiful art and updates every Monday!

Eberhart & the Phoenix Chicken

Short, with no words, it tells the story of a anthropomorphic boar (I think?) and the chicken he discovers that also happens to be a phoenix.

Enjoy!

    Beaton! I didn’t know she did things other than Hark! A Vagrant! I am a little oblivious sometimes.

    ((A great green dragon lands and closes bird-like wings plumed, not with feathers, but with scales that make a musical, glassy sound when folded.)) Understatement. I thought I was supposed to notify this one.

    Jubilare: you are… I was… reading.

    Dragon: right. Well, Ms. Grimmella? My author has nominated you for an award that has something to do with dragons. We aren’t quite clear on why, but any excuse for dragons is a good one. https://jubilare.wordpress.com/2015/05/19/dragons-loyalty-award/
