In observation of the story hitting (I think) the home stretch, I've decided to share some of Ursula Vernon's "very peculiar epic", Digger.

You're a vile old woman. )
I can't say enough good things about the series. It's one long sequence of awesome, and available in collections for your convenience. (:

If you don't believe me, just look at what your friendly neighborhood tropers have to say.

Long story short, someone worked out a simplified way to take advantage of open wi-fi connections...and released it as a Firefox add-on for mass consumption. There are security options that help with it, though.

I figure anyone who was planning to use the add-on already knows about it, but our folks don't, and wouldn't be inclined to use it in any case. (Mods, if you disagree, feel free to pull the post.)

Read more... )

For legality, have three old pages from Digger...which I seem to have posted before. Eh, it was over a year ago.

Deer-headed man + anthropomorphic sapient hyena = trouble. )

So, someone recommended Digger a few days back. I'm glad they did, despite my ensuing lack of sleep. It's witty, cute, and has spectacular art.

It also has a character with what may be the most humiliating origin story ever. EVER. Thought I'd share that as an incentive for you to go read the comic.

Peter Parker's got nothing on this. (19 pages out of...over 700.) )

Digger is only sort of a webcomic, in the sense that the entire series can be read online, and a new page is released every Tuesday and Thursday. But you can also buy paperback volumes of it.

Digger is a sentient wombat. Wombats, as Vernon sees them, are work-oriented, down-to-earth creatures with no use for magic or gods, as such things tend to complicate building secure tunnels. This doesn't protect Digger herself from becoming embroiled with the god Ganesh, a mad teenage priestess, an oracular slug, a baby demon, and a tribe of sentient hyenas. And more.

Digger herself is deeply charming. She's slow to anger, even befriending people who originally tried to eat her with no grudge held, but when something does make her mad, watch out. With no fuss or dramatics, she does her duty. When a magician is telling her what happened to his last apprentice, he asks, "If I gave you a box and told you that it must never be opened, what would you do?" She immediately starts talking about how to encase it in steel and concrete, not even thinking of the temptation members of less pragmatic species (like, you know, humans) feel at such a command.

The story has a great deal of humor, especially based on the bizarre magics and circumstances that intertwine, but it's also an epic adventure, and a fascinating twisty plot.

In sum, this is a really good comic, and all of you should go read it. It was nominated for an Eisner and you have hundreds of pages of it to enjoy. Under the cut is a scan from it for legality and tantalization.

And here is the link to the comic!

In honor of Digger moving site and no longer being subscription-only for the archives, I bestow upon you, my dear friends at scans_daily, one of my favorite Digger strips.

Also a bonus half-comic from 8-bit Theater, all behind the cut )

For those not already in the know, Digger's new home is http://www.diggercomic.com/
And 8-bit Theater can as always be found at http://www.nuklearpower.com/
