UPDATE: Now available in the UK
You may wonder why anyone would want to buy a book version of something that’s freely available online. The answer, in the case of Gunnerkrigg Court, is that you’ll want to read it again and again, possibly in more comfortable surroundings than sitting at your computer, and maybe even pass it on to your friends and family to enjoy.
Gunnerkrigg Court is an online comic with a cult following. Written and illustrated by Tom Siddell, a 3D graphic designer from Birmingham, it’s been referred to as a cross between Harry Potter and Lemony Snicket, though to our minds, it has much in common with Jeff Smith’s wonderful Bone. It’s an all-ages fantasy story with a darkly cheeky twist – kids will love it, and so will you. And if you don’t believe us, read it online first at www.gunnerkrigg.com.
