The Penned Guin presents "Did you hear the one about..." - a new book collecting the first 500 daily comic strips (and more) of our funny penguin gang.

What are we

Penguin (noun, Ornithology)

  • any of several flightless, aquatic birds of the family Spheniscidae, of the Southern Hemisphere, having webbed feet and wings reduced to flippers.

Penned Guin (noun, Panelology)

  • many comic strips featuring the antics of funny little penguins that have been penned by writer/artist Alan Henderson
  • see also – dad jokes; puns; webcomic; comic strip

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 comics have covered topics as diverse as learning to drive through to visiting the circus.

Based just outside Edinburgh, Alan Henderson started releasing the daily webcomic in early 2013 to the website - pennedguins.tumblr.com

The new treasury edition collects into one book the first five hundred strips that have previously been in the self published comics - Flying Lessons; Cold Feet; Out & About; and Melting Pot.

The New Book

The book is A4, over 150 pages long with black & white interiors - what would you expect from penguins.

Why Kickstarter for this Book

There have been six previous comic book releases of the Penned Guin comic strips all of which have gone down really well at comic conventions across the UK. As the first four book have now sold out I've decided to use Kickstarter to help collect them together into a larger treasury edition. This new book will allow me to reach out to a wider audience and provide you with high quality product.

Review of previous Penned Guin books

"the rapid-fire delivery like a comedian unleashing a machinegun torrent of one-liners"

Craig Neilson-Adams - www.bigcomicpage.com

“had me laughing enough to startle the cat on several occasions”

Susan Omand www.thedreamcage.com/

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 fulfillment and packing; 70% supports the book printing; and 5% goes to the on-going production of the strip (I need more pens & paper)

Where to find us

 STRETCH GOAL - If we reach £800 in funding everyone who has ordered the book will receive an all new print set!

Risks and challenges

There are no real risks involved as the work is already completed and the files are ready to go to the printer as soon as I add the backers names to the 'thank you' page.
