Any Gunnerkrigg Court fans?
« on: May 18, 2015, 05:49:06 PM »
The comic tells the story of Antimony Carver, a young girl who has just started attending a strange and mysterious school called Gunnerkrigg Court. She is accompanied throughout the storyline by her friend and classmate Katerina Donlan and her companion Reynardine, a demon living within a stuffed animal.

 The comic's style and themes include elements from science, fantasy creatures, mythology from a variety of traditions, and alchemical symbols and theories; the literary style is heavily influenced by mystery and manga comics.

 :'(  Thank you, RandomCamel.

Knowing other people love Gunnerkrigg Court makes me want to burst into song.

Gunnerkrigg is a gorgeous, almost melancholy fairy tale.  The atmosphere is enchanting and nostalgic, and the characters are an utter delight. It manages to be poignant, witty, and one of the best fantasy/sci-fi stories I've read in a long time.

Gunnerkrigg Court is amazing, and I strongly recommend it to anyone with even a remote interest in fantasy.  It's worth it.

This is delightful! Thanks for sharing. Had never heard of it.
