Crowdfunding Spotlight: New “Penned Guins” book heading our way

The critically acclaimed, extremely silly and thoroughly enjoyable comic strip the The Penned Guins by Alan Henderson returns to print with Coincidence – an all new collection of the daily cartoons that appeared online through early 2020.

The Penned Guins comic strip features the fun antics of a funny group of penguins penned by writer/artist Alan Henderson. With family friendly humour for all, the daily webcomic has been running for over seven years and appears on a variety of social media.

The crowdfunder for this latest collectors is already over 200 per cent funded, which is great to hear. If you haven’t already, check out the Kickstarter before it ends soon.

To date, Alan has successfully funded six books by this approach, all of which has enabled the penguins to ‘fly’ round the world, reaching all corners of the globe and even allowing him to make the statement “We’re big in Finland!”

The Penned Guins – Coincidence comes packed with 100 pages of penguin laughs and giggles, around 180 strips in all, none of which have ever been in a printed edition before.
