BOOK DESCRIPTION: 

The story of a wombat on an incredible journey of discovery Kurt Busiek calls "utterly charming with a delightful (and refreshingly practical) hero."
Digger Unearthed is the story of a shrewd, sensible wombat engineer named Digger-of-unnecessarily-convoluted-tunnels, who finds herself stranded in a fantasy world that is far from logical. Thrust into the middle of a puzzling and often perilous situation involving gods, demons, destiny, and redemption, she finds her way based on a pragmatic honesty and the sincere belief in doing the right thing.
This tale manages to be both serious and light-hearted: it explores complex themes of honor, responsibility, and the gray areas between right and wrong, but it does so with a frequent application of humor, wit, and absurdity that makes the journey fun.
To celebrate its tenth anniversary, Digger Unearthed offers the complete webcomic collection in a single volume that can be fully enjoyed by young adult readers, yet also contains layers of sophistication that become deeper and more meaningful with age and experience.

REVIEWS:

"A rich fantasy adventure, a bitingly sarcastic satire, a meditation on myth and religion, and possessed of a quirky and beautiful black-and-white art style."
—Eric Lindberg, Broken Frontier

"Digger is an amazingly successful comic that wouldn't work in any other medium. I love it!"
—Phil Foglio, Girl Genius creator
