The Guild (miniseries), Dark Horse
Dark Horse; GCD

This is a 2010 three-issue miniseries based on the webseries The Guild, written by and starring Felicia Day, who also writes (or cowrites) the comics. It serves as a prequel to the webseries. I'm really not quite sure what else to say. I liked the comics a lot, but not as much as I love the show. And I don't feel like detailing anything about the plot. Because I'm lazy. Er, I mean... because I don't want to spoil the fun you'd have reading it yourself! If you're a fan of the series, I guarantee you'll like the comics, though I feel like they're best appreciated if you are already a fan. Still, even if you read the comics first, you might very well like them enough that they inspire you to check out the webseries... which I cannot recommend highly enough.

The Guild (one-shots), Dark Horse
Dark Horse

Between December 2010 and December 2011, there was a series of five one-shots, about each of the main characters from the series: Vork, Tink, Bladezz, Clara, and Zaboo. (I guess Codex didn't get a one-shot because she already had a three-shot of her own.) And in May 2012, there was a Fawkes one-shot. Each of these comics gives us more of an insight into the real (offline) lives of the characters. And the stories are pretty funny. And stuff. Once again, I don't feel like detailing any of the specific plots. But also once again, I guarantee you'll enjoy them if you're a fan of the series.

And I hope someday to read more Guild comics, if and when they come out. (There is a Free Comic Book Day comic from 2012, which I haven't read, but at some point I'll probably check it out as a digital comic.)
