The Guild trade
Published on Saturday, November 13, 2010 by

Like a lot of Guild late comers I was introduced to the online humor stylings of Felicia Day and Co. after watching Dr. Horrible’s Sing Along Blog. Both are excellent. While I like the story of Dr Horrible more, I appreciate the fact that the Guild is still on going with a high quality on line series. While I doubt that it will ever rival the tv for entertainment, the internet could be better used, and programs like The Guild help showcase the potential.

Both of these programs came to comic prequels last year from Dark Horse Comics. Sadly Dr. Horrible was a one shot, while yet again, Felicia Day delivered three issues for a longer stint of prequel fun. Felicia Day scripted the comic, then collaborated with Jim Rugg (Afrodisiac) to produce a fun filled well executed prequel to the webisodes.

Now the well recieved three issue mini series is coming out in a trade collection. If you missed this comic the first go round, then it is about time to hop aboard.

Writer: Felicia Day
Artist: Jim Rugg
Colorist: Dan Jackson

Genre: Humor, Fantasy
Official Description:
Chronicling the hilarious on–and offline lives of a group of Internet role–playing gamers, the Knights of Good, The Guild has become a cult hit, and is the winner of numerous awards from SXSW, YouTube, Yahoo, and the Streamys. Now, Day brings the wit and heart of the show to this graphic-novel prequel. In this origin tale of the Knights of Good, we learn about Cyd’s life before joining the guild, how she became Codex, her awful breakup with boyfriend Trevor, and how she began to meet the other players who would eventually become her teammates.

* This story line fills in details never before revealed on the web show, making it an essential new chapter for existing fans as well as a perfect jumping–on point for new fans!

Speaking of jumping on points for new fans, watch www.WatchtheGuild.com for a little while and see if you fall for these likable online misfits.

The prequel does a great job keeping their personalities intact, perhaps because Felicia Day is writing it herself.
