“Pibgorn” is a web-only Monday through Friday comic on gocomics.com. The description from the site reads:
“A fantastic saga of adventure both high and low, of forbidden passion and iambic pentameter, of fays, fools, organists, demons, accordions, heaven, hell and Shakespeare, Pibgorn follows the whims and flights of its eponymous fairy heroine as she plies her conviction that there must be more to life than depositing dew drops on dandelions and sleeping under mushrooms.”
The strip is currently in reruns, which happens periodically while the strip’s creator, Brooke McEldowney, researches and produces a new, complete story (as well as working on his other strip, “9 Chickweed Lane.”) However, he is adding additional text outside of the frames which reflects on elements from that story, much like a DVD commentary track. I love that he is being given this opportunity to share his thoughts with readers and that we have the chance to read his reflections on his strips some years after they were published. McEldowney touches on everything from story influences to artistic elements that many readers may miss.
At this point, I honestly don’t remember how or when I started reading “Pibgorn.” But I’m never disappointed.
