Battlepug to be Collected by Dark Horse

For just over a year now, Mike Norton has been writing a weekly webcomic, Battlepug.  With Allen Passalaqua and Crank assisting on the artwork, it's a unique blend of a Conan-like barbarian and giant animals.  I just discovered it today.  I'm still trying to decide if it works for me, but I like the visuals and the framing story.  With weekly installments, it took a while for the story to really get going, but it seems to be picking up steam.  Norton is beginning to flesh out the background and add supporting characters.  Dark Horse recently announced it would collect the first year, to be published in July.  Anyway, I thought I'd mention it in case some of you who aren't aware of it might be interested.


  1. hum, haven't seen the webcomic. I'll have to check it out.

    1. It's worth a look. There are only a year's worth up at the moment, and since it's a weekly comic, you can read the entire run to date pretty quickly.
