Pibgorn

Postby Selma in Sandy Eggo » Thu Jun 09, 2005 10:09 am

Don't know how many of you already follow this comic strip, but the current adventure is taking a distinctly classical turn.

It's a new story, started with the 5/23 panel, and you can catch up because the site keeps a month's archive available. It's at Pibgorn and it's worth a look.

Enjoy!

No, no, not Piqaboo. Pibgorn. Not the same person at all, at all.

Sheesh. Tenors. Take everything so personal. :eek:

Having been a dirty old man for at least the past half century, I was naturally attracted to Pib one time when I was catching up on the adventures of the Burber ladies, AKA 9 Chickweed Lane. Both are done by the same author/artist, who regularly weaves some form of classical music into the strips.

I've bookmarked the page. We don't get this strip in my paper, and I'd like to see how the story progresses.

So, for the past year, we're getting a graphic novel treatment?

And where's Dru?

Are you sure? I thought that at first too, but then I doubted it based on the hairstyle.

Yup. I could be wrong, I suppose, but I'm sure.

Ears. Staghorn ears. Only succubi have 'em. We have a limited number of brunette succubi to chose from.

I'm having such a good time with this story. Looking forward to the "Pyramus and Thisbee" internal playlet...

At three lines per week, it's slooooooow going, and since it's a story that's already known, the only real drama is how the artwork is going to treat the material (which is usually better than could be done by live actors).

Alas, milady, 'tis true that I would prefer an original story, albeit I save every panel.

Alas, it appears that there's another hiatus with Pib.

On 17 April 2007, United Media announced through comics.com that Pibgorn would be discontinued on 18 April, 2007. McEldowney has indicated that United Media accomodated his request to be released from his contract in order to secure a new online home for Pibgorn.

And I missed Wednesday's strip. :curse:

I dropped the artist/author an email and he replies:
Brooke McEldowney wrote:With United Media's announcement that "Pibgorn" is to be discontinued, I have been inundated with e-mail, much of it agitated and distressed. I'm very sorry you had to get the news in this rather dispassionate way. That I may answer your central question forthwith, I've composed this response for everyone – so please forgive me if I seem impersonal.


"PIBGORN" WILL CONTINUE. (for current information and dispatches go to officialpibgorn.livejournal.com)


There. That is the main thing I wanted to say. Comics.com, however, will, as they have announced, no longer be the source. Nothing dramatic happened, really. I simply came to feel that the editorial needs of comcs.com and those of "Pibgorn" were becoming more and more divergent and incompatible. For this reason I asked to be released from my contract with United Media in order to secure a new online home for "Pibgorn." United Media most graciously, and reluctantly, agreed. In short order I hope to get Pib back up and flying.


Meanwhile, you have seen the most current installments of "Pibgorn." Hold that thought. We'll be back.


All best wishes, and thanks so very much for writing.

He wants to draw his characters topless and United Media won't let him. :D

I'm missing Pib.

Yup. Pibby is going to be on something called gocomics.com. And the current story is going to start from the first panel, which will be a repeat of several panels we've already seen but will give us an uninterrupted story thread.

Including the one panel I saw, barfle missed, and neither of us saved. :happy:

Never heard of gocomics before. They'll get some new users off of this. :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug:

Here is an amusing little comic I found on Go comics. Today's sucks, but many of them have just the right amount of bite.

Pibby is up to the "controversial" panel, which was posted in its original form yesterday. Pretty soon, we should be into new panels. :happy:

Although navigation on the site is fraught with popups and busted links, it's worth clicking on the "calendar" tab to go back in history. I believe the entire Thisby is now posted there, as well as some stuff from before it.
