Grumpy Giles- a Betta Comic Book


Grumpy Giles is a 52 page book of comic strips about me and my (now late) betta fish, Giles. I loved that little guy more than anything I could ever love. After he died, I was inspired to collect the comics I made throughout his life into a tribute book including a few literary pieces, illustrations, and fanart from my readers. I got it printed through Ka-Blam for cheap, so I'm able to sell it at only $5.50, which was surprising for me, given all the other print-on-demand companies out there XDD Anyway, there aren't enough betta comics out there, so I decided I'd forge my way into that territory. PM me if you're interested in a copy n.n

Sorry about Giles. He seemed like a pretty awesome little fella from your comics.

Actually, these are a collection of strips I had done throughout his whole life. After his death, I was inspired to put them into a collection and sell it as a book, including new strips that recollected times I hadn't previously drawn.
