Digger

Digger is a story about a wombat. More specifically, it is a story about a particularly no-nonsense wombat who finds herself stuck on the wrong end of a one-way tunnel in a strange land where nonsense seems to be the specialty. Now with the help of a talking statue of a god, an outcast hyena, a shadow-being of undeterminate origin, and an oracular slug she seeks to find out where she is and how to go about getting back to her Warren.

With an irreverent sense of humor and a fantasy protagonist with a healthy dose of skepticism, Digger rapidly gained a huge following of devoted fans eager for the twice a week updates on the webcomic anthology site Graphic Smash.

Digger has been the winner of the Web Cartoonists' Choice Awards in the categories of Outstanding Black and White Art (2005, 2006), Outstanding Anthropomorphic Comic (2006), and in 2006 was nominated for a Will Eisner Comics Industry Award in the category of Talent Deserving of Wider Recognition. In 2012, Digger received the Hugo Award for Best Graphic Story.
