The thinking man's cartoon -- a wry look at the absurdities of everyday life.
A fantastic saga of adventure both high and low, of forbidden passion and iambic pentameter, of fays, fools, organists, demons, accordions, heaven, hell and Shakespeare, Pibgorn follows the whims and flights of its eponymous fairy heroine as she plies her conviction that there must be more to life than depositing dew drops on dandelions and sleeping under mushrooms.

Ten abandoned cats live in an old warehouse where they are looked after by a young girl named Annie. They include Chesney, the ringleader, Jack, his sidekick, and Oliver - a wide-eyed kitten.

In 2013, Ten Cats, created by Graham Harrop, won the prestigious Reuben Award in the Best Online Comics - Short Form division.
"Once every 5 or 10 years, a new comic feature emerges that's truly unique, breaking the mold of the tired, formulaic pack that populates most of the comics page. Mike Du Jour is such a feature. The art alone is a joy to look at, bringing a smile to your face and making you linger on it. That alone makes it special in today's comic field, but coupled with Mike Lester's whimsical, unpredictable wit, MDJ is a daily must-read. Mike Lester is truly a master of comic art." —Wiley Miller, Non Sequitur
