    Default Digger is now concluded

    http://www.diggercomic.com/

    I know that there's been the occasional Digger topic, but they seem to come and go. But the final page has just gone up, and it's time for all the Digger fans to come up out of the woodwork and give it a fond farewell. The world building was amazing, the art expressive, the characters enjoyable, and the story oddly compelling. I liked it, sad to see it go, but pleased that it ended well.

    What do you think of it?

    Coincidence: two great webcomics ended the same day: Digger and The Phoenix Requiem.


    Concerning Digger, the end is a bit of a let-down for me; I'm not sure the poor little wombat has much left home to go back to, as everyone thinks her long dead -- most likely...

    And what of Shadowchild/teen ? There is plenty left unresolved.

    But as they say, even the longest tunnel has an end. Or something to that effect. Still, I for one shall miss this particular webcomic.

    I've spent about 15 minutes on this post, and I'm no closer to having anything remotely like what I want to say, so I'm just going to say what little I've got so far.

    My favorite webcomic just ended.

    I think that it ended satisfactorily, though I can't say for certain until I've done another archive binge.

    I was a very good and unique webcomic.

    I don't mind it ending, though. All stories should have an ending. Dragging the story out forever as some do just makes the comic go lame. This one ended where it should.

    A fitting end for an truly excellent webcomic. While seeing it end makes me a bit sad, I do believe in things ending when they should, and this was the time for Digger. Fare thee well, wombat.
    Truth resists simplicity.

    It ended with happiness and the heroes successful. And it was beautiful. I'm glad that it was created.
    I have a tendency to jump to conclusions. You'd think I'd learn not to while swimming back...

    Wombats, however, are more practical than Hobbits.

    Suddenly disappear in a world where the Gods can take you at whim to fulfill a prophecy? "Oh, dear, not again. Perhaps they'll be back in a year or two."

    And what of Shadowchild/teen ? There is plenty left unresolved.
    But can be done without the titular wombat. Her part in Shadowchild's story is over. She's going home; Shadowchild's home is the forest around the Statue.
    May you get EXACTLY what you wish for.

    Yeah but shes not home yet. Sure they skipped the return trip of bilbo, but at least we got to find out what happened when he got home. Digger? We dont know what happened on this mysterious trip with a strange man traveling through strange places. We dont know what her reception back home will be like. It just kinda.... stops.

    Actually, we do, she, Digger, told us at one point. Basically, they assume if you haven't been back in a few weeks, you're dead from injury or starvation in some cave in or something.
    Also, Wombats for the past few hundred year have been immune to prophesy from gods and pretty much everything. Except slugs, slugs get through.

    Read this in one night since it was concluded. Over all very good. I felt the end was a little rushed at parts but also feel that drawing them out would have made things much worse. Over all...I can't say more because of board rules.

    I still haven't removed it from my daily bookmarks. I found the comic late in its run, but I quite enjoyed it. Kind of reminded me of Bone, really, but had its own good points.

    I'd like to see the various goodbyes if nothing else.

    I loved reading Digger and am sad to see it end, but I agree this is a good point in the story, I guess I'd just like a bit more of a denouement than this.

    It says a lot about Ursula's talent that a story that began as a whim, became very engrossing. It shared equally wonderful writing and artwork, and finally concluded with a highly satisfying ending. Ms. Vernon is one of the greats that other webcomic artists should look up to.

    I only found this comic because of this thread, but it was great. I really like when people find ways to end a long story without resorting to some kind of awful shakesperian-tragedy ripoff.

    Yeah, but I wanted to see Diggers home, how she adjusts to being back and how the fellow Wombats adjust to her being back and changed. I wanted more of a goodbye then this.

    Hell, the trip home alone could be a sequal. From the description, it will take them longer to get home, than digger spent hanging with ganesh. And they will be travelling through all sorts of unspeakable places, filled with incuriosities and such.
