Wednesday’s Webcomic: A Girl and Her Fed

Wednesday's Webcomic

A Girl and her Fed is an exciting, complex and romantic thriller.  It has conspiracies, civil rights abuses,  science and Big Government gone wrong, and a lot of dick jokes. It begins when a Girl discovers she’s been put on a Terrorism Watch-list by a shadowy government organization and decides to track down the culprits with her long-time friend, a hallucination of Benjamin Franklin. The Fed assigned to watch her, who was part of a failed government experiment to hook bionic communications chips into their brains, can see her hallucination and she realizes that she is in fact being haunted by the ghost of Ben Franklin, as he has been telling her all along. She can also see the cranial chip’s interface, which (unfortunately for the agents in whom it is installed) resembles George W. Bush’s floating head. After the mysterious death of another agent, the two discover there was a lot more to the microchip program then anyone originally suspected and that it is somehow connected to the busybody ghosts of the founding fathers. They begin an investigation and adventure, also aided by a foul mouthed, genetically engineered super Koala. And that is only the beginning!

A girl and her fed

This has been one of my favorite webcomics to watch evolve and grow, especially the art. Arc 1 is complete and Arc 2 recently started. Through sheer charisma and writing quality it has amassed a very big and devoted following  and through the authors efforts and what must have been a LOT of practice the art style has evolved from rudimentary and expressive to clear, colorful and dynamic.  From the very beginning, the chemistry and sexual tension of the unnamed Girl and her unnamed Fed is absolutely scrumptious and gets even better as the art is upgraded. The comic is currently mid-upgrade with one redone page every week, so sometime after starting it you will run into the old art style. As the pages are upgraded some of the text also  becomes unnecessary and is changed at the author’s discretion and all of the original pages are hidden neatly behind the new ones. The art is primarily being redone so as to make it easier to publish and enough has been completed to publish the first book.

A Girl and Her Fed Classic

This is why you should practice, practice, practice!

The Author

K.B. Spangler puts an incredible amount of time and energy into creating side-story material for the comic in addition to her other profession as a researcher. While the comic is available for free, there’s a dazzling array of short stories, wallpapers, pins, tees, and this incredible plushie of Speedy the Koala for sale in her store. Also, a full-length thriller novel about a side character is due to be released soon! The first three parts have been released on a sponsorship basis as a sort of self-run Kickstarter. The main character of the novel does not appear until very recently in the comic timeline, so I would definitely recommend the comic first. Speedy the Koala also has a hilarious in-character Twitter feed.

    Thanks. I didn’t know the original art was hidden behind. I’ll have to obsessively compulsively read it again from the beginning.
