"Sluggy Freelance is a popular, long-running daily webcomic written and drawn by Pete Abrams...

While the strip began as a gag-based series in which the three main protagonists (Torg, Riff and Zoë) would stumble from one brief, bizarre, parody-centric adventure to the next, the characters and plotlines have gradually become longer and more serious. However, even the more dramatic and soap operatic story arcs often conform to the common gag comic strip format. While there is often sexual innuendo and cartoon violence, the comic contains no strong profanity or explicit nudity.

The characters in Sluggy Freelance are a varied and diverse lot. The primary protagonist Torg is a cheerful and impulsive nerd, who frequently finds himself going on wild adventures (though rarely of his own volition). Often, these adventures are enabled by Torg's genius inventor friend, Riff. Zoë, the most normal character of the bunch, serves as the futile voice of reason for the cast. They are accompanied by their sometimes-witch friend Gwynn, a psychopathic switchblade-wielding rabbit Bun-bun, the hyperactive ferret Kiki, and a shape-shifting alien named Aylee.

Sluggy Freelance has featured several yearly reoccurring themes, although many of them have eventually been broken or discontinued due to developments in the overall plot..."

"...Very few Sluggy Freelance comics work as stand-alones, but part of the charm of Sluggy Freelance is its serial nature...

...Sluggy Freelance is better thought of as a series of novels..."
