Girly is a comic that was published at girlyyy.com from 2003 to 2010. Yes, it ended recently, and I would like to present one last nifty thing for the readers, and that is a complete print collection!
Along with the special features listed below, all the books will contain commentaries that follow each chapter. They'll all presented in a swanky slipcase with Winter and Otra on each side. Along with that, every collection will come with a free copy of the Cutewendy book, so you can have the complete saga, from the very, very beginning!
This collection will be limited to a print run of 500, with each copy signed and numbered.
Comics 1-246 (chapters 1 through 7)
The story of Otra meeting Winter, their first adventures, the Elephant Problem, El Chupacabre, the Cheapgag adventure, the "mystery sister", the towering inferno, and the new design! This edition is printed in Pink-vision, much like how it appears on the website! 228 pages
Marshmallow Kitty showcase: All the "vs" comics and the Many Moods
"A Girly Christmas" and "A Girly Valentine's"
Girly in Space! - a 2-page print-only comic
The First Designs - designs of "Girly" and "The Other Girl II"
Color Illustration Gallery: The Original Covers, The Cosplay Sketches
Outtakes - Sketches for the original versions of comics 85 and 228, the original words in #246
Comics 247-503 (chapters 8 through 11)
Featuring the Internet romance, the Knight's quest, Collette's new friend, the fight, the mix-up, a whole lot of side-character stories, and those darn shadow guys. Although the website has these comics in various colors, this book will also be printed in Pink-vision to keep things fairly consistent (and also to keep me sane) 264 pages
The third book that Could Have Been (but I Went a Little Overboard) - various snips and clips of the heavily-revised comics I was originally planning to include in the original version of the third Girly book, which got cancelled for various reasons, the main one being that if I had continued on with it as originally planned, it would have been done in 2019.
Though not as insanely revised as originally planned, the Body-swap chapter will include a revised ending with cleaned-up dialogue, and a couple new revelations. This revision will be a "timed exclusive" for the books, which is to say, they'll be uploaded to the website eventually, but several months after the books come out.
It will also include a new 2-page epilogue, print-exclusive!
MANLY FEATURETTE - The "MANLY" comic and the "MANLY SHIRT" ad
Color Illustration Gallery: The short-lived "Art Day" sketches, the Girly Ghosts, and various others
Outtakes - original versions of 361 and 502
Comics 504-625 (chapters 12 through 14)
Featuring the recap, the world's best character, the GED, the Sandra adventure, showdowns all over town, and the thoughtless corporation and their ominous new shop. This book will also be printed in Pink-vision, as opposed to the dreary black and white you see on the website. Except for the color chapter, which will be printed in color. HOORAY. 232 pages SPECIAL FEATURES
The deleted comic - there was a comic early in chapter 13 that I dropped before finishing. I regret doing it so I have inked it and will present it in this book!

Comics 626-764 (chapter 15)
Winter and Otra vs. The Evil sidekicks... the Pop-culture, the Babies, the Underworld, the Law, the Queen, Everyone, the Business, the Love, the End. Printed in Pink-vision, pretty much almost exactly how it appears on the website. 368 pages SPECIAL FEATURES
One last set of Outtakes - Chapter 15 is huge, which leaves little room for extras, but here is a chunk of outtakes, including original sketches for comics 690-693, 730, 733-737, and the original version of #626
