A Stray in the Woods



A Stray in the Woods During its original run as a webcomic on Tumblr, this comic was a collaboration between me, Alison Wilgus, and its readers After each update, I took suggestions as to what Cat should do Investigate an object Move into another room Eat something off the floor These commands could be mundane or ridiculous, foolish or brave, serious or silly the only rule was that they be possible for Cat to do, given the current circumstances.When I sat down to draw, I would read through all of the commands that had been submitted and select one as the basis for the next page.I sometimes edited for length or corrected minor errors, but every command in A Stray in the Woods came from a reader While I began with a basic idea of the story I wanted to tell, the community ultimately shaped how Cat s adventure would unfold, and I m grateful to everyone who took the time to guide A Stray in the Woods.
