Down the 'Nuts
   
 

Welcome to the Hog’s Nuts Sports Bar and Grille
Come on in and meet the regulars...

 
 

1. Pewfell

3. Gnoma
This small, blue pest squats in Pewfell's basement and does all in her power to make him miserable.

5. Podrick and Pankratz

6. Rødnez
Tina's steed and household pet is an affectionate vegan wyvern.

7. Bish Bathenwell
Cyborg cleric devoted the goddess Hornbag, an obscure deity that no-one else has ever heard of. Though Hornbag appears to be a product of Bish's deranged mechanical mind, his faith and it's accompanying vow of chastity remain unshakable.

Pedwyn is a free spirit who loves life and loathes only boredom. Though he believes himself to be of good moral character, he often finds that crime is the most efficient way to earn a living.

Pewfell is an epic fantasy sitcom that follows the amazing adventures of an inept wizard, his warrior princess wife and the small blue gnome who hates him.

Pewfell began running as daily webcomic in early 2001 and was one of the charter strips offered as part of ModernTales.com when it launched in 2002 and continues to appear there to this day. Pewfell can also be found on various places on the web, including DrunkDuck, DriveThruComics, ComicXpress, Clickwheel.net, ComicSpace. and 'The Wizards of Ur', a blog feturing the work of some of the greatest cartoon fantasy artists on the web. Pewfell appeared in the documentary film 'Adventures Into Digital Comics ' and was featured in the book 'Toon Art: The Graphic Art of Digital Cartooning' by Stephen Withrow.

Some of my inspirations for Pewfell include the comic strip work of E.C. Segar, Goscinny & Uderzo , Gilbert Shelton and the books of Terry Pratchett.

Enjoy the strip!

Reviews

Here are some nice things others have had to say about Pewfell:


Pewfell is kick ass, with extra kick left over in case more ass shows up.
—Jerry Holkins, Penny Arcade


Solid laughs, funny characters, and ludicrous plot points from start to finish. This remains one of my favorite indy sleepers: a satisfying little book.
