Sunday Morning Funnies: Gnomish Investigation Agency

Amanda Miller

Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

Every week, SMF has been featuring a regularly updating web comic about, or inspired by, World of Warcraft. This week, meet The Gnomish Investigation Agency:

The Gnomish Investigation Agency is written and created by Scott, who is, among other things, an anthropology student. Scott started the comic as a fun project for himself and his guild, and it evolved from there. He uses iPhoto, Comic Life 2 and Image Tricks to create the comic, but may branch out to other programs in the future. Everything is shot in-game.

The comic itself is about a gnomish private detective by the name of Mr. Wizworth Coggling, who, after witnessing various tragedies befall his people, decides to form an agency to help gnomes who have fallen on tough times. The motto: "We make your big problems seem small!"

Other characters include Dr. Fizton Lightspanner and a mysterious, top-hatted gnome.

The Gnomish Investigation Agency updates once or twice weekly.

And now for this week's comics:

In comic news this week, Contested Territory has uploaded the end to Chapter 2! Check it out above. The comic will be on hiatus until the end of July, when Chapter 3 will begin unfolding! In the meantime, there will be plenty of fun filler content, so we'll have something to tide us over.

Away From Reality is still unveiling a special series of comics, so don't miss out! And I totally am apparently going to get my gnome-rogue-in-Animal-Crossing wish! I can't wait. Yay Mary!

If you were interested in Guilded Age and its Kickstarter fund for some animated shorts and Volume 2 in print, it's coming along nicely but still has room to grow. There are also a couple of updates to check out.

And, last but not least, we have a new, WoW-inspired comic to add to the list! Check out Experience Boost, or XP Boost, above!
