Who are we
The Penned Guin comic strip features the fun antics of a funny group of penguins from the pen of writer/artist Alan Henderson. With family friendly humour for all, the daily webcomic started in early 2013 to the website - pennedguins.tumblr.com
The New Book
“To Coldly Go...” is an all new book that pulls together over 170 of the daily comic strips, none of which have ever been in a printed edition before.
The book is A5 landscape with 100 pages of black & white penguin humour featuring puns, dad jokes and cringing humour - as our penguin crew have adventures in space; hold an election and visit the vet.
Why Kickstarter for this book?
The Penned Guin Treasury Edition was a successful Kickstarter at the start of 2017 and allowed the penguins to fly round the world. So I'm offering the new book through the same process to allow me reach as wide an audience as possible but don't worry you'll still see us at comic conventions across the UK.
What do people say about the Penned Guin?
WINNER Best humour comic - Edinburgh Comic Con 2017
"This is an absolute joy, every page is funny and some are very poignant. It's a great read and wonderfully drawn. Highly recommend this" (5 Stars) Alex via Amazon.co.uk
"It's just the kind humour that happens to be to my liking – and when it also stars penguins, we've entered into a must-read territory." TAGAP.net
How am I using the money?
The Penned Guin is a labour of love and isn't here to make me rich (but if somebody wants to do that I'll not send you away!). So the money raised will be used as follows - 10% goes towards Kickstarter/payment fees;15% goes to the fulfilment and packing; then 75% supports the book printing.
