Catching Up With Phoebe and Her Unicorn

It’s much too easy to take good entertainment in a continuing series for granted. I talked about how much I liked the first two books, Phoebe and Her Unicorn and Unicorn on a Roll, and then it seems like I blinked and there were five more. But it’s been four years now that these volumes have been collecting the charming comic strip about an imaginative little girl and her magical friend. Here’s the catch-up run-down, all of which are recommended […]

Phoebe and Her Unicorn Original Graphic Novel Coming

My favorite comic strip, Phoebe and Her Unicorn, has been collected in a series of books. Now creator Dana Simpson has tweeted that there’s an original graphic novel coming in October called Phoebe and Her Unicorn in the Magic Storm. It'll be the first standalone graphic novel (as opposed to collections of strips). That's exciting for me! — Phoebe & Her Unicorn (@HevNostrils) February 7, 2017 Here’s the description: Phoebe and Marigold decide to investigate a winter storm that is […]

Unicorn vs. Goblins: Another Phoebe and Her Unicorn Adventure Available for Pre-Order

I’ve mentioned Unicorn vs. Goblins: Another Phoebe and Her Unicorn Adventure before, but now there’s a cover and a good excuse to remind you how great the Phoebe and Her Unicorn comic strip is. It’s too new to be in this collection, the third, but for example, check out this recent storyline. It starts with Phoebe comparing her friend Marigold to a horse, and Marigold objecting to being misidentified. The storyline continues with Phoebe learning that friendship is more important […]

Phoebe and Her Unicorn: A Heavenly Nostrils Chronicle

When a friend recommended the Phoebe and Her Unicorn comic strip (formerly known as Heavenly Nostrils) to me, she described it as a more modern, girl-centered Calvin and Hobbes. She was right. Phoebe and Her Unicorn by Dana Simpson is the first collection of the strips. Phoebe is playing near a pond in the woods when she skips a stone that hits Marigold Heavenly Nostrils, a unicorn. Marigold is so beautiful (at least, in her own mind) that she was […]

Unicorn Famous

Unicorn Famous is the thirteenth book in the series, collecting the ongoing Phoebe and Her Unicorn comic strip by Dana Simpson. I was surprised to see that it opens with a lengthy sequence about being able to be what you want when you grow up, even if that thing is a unicorn. Of course, they’re magical creatures, so maybe that makes sense, but to a human reader, it’s encouraging, reminding us that we have options and choices. It’s all handled […]

Virtual Unicorn Experience

The latest Phoebe and Her Unicorn collection from Dana Simpson, Virtual Unicorn Experience, is as fresh and funny and entertaining as any of the previous. It’s the twelfth book in the series, so that’s a pretty impressive track record. Since the unicorn Marigold is a magical creature, her sometimes use of spells makes for entertaining visuals, but the realistic elements of this strip are where it excels. In Virtual Unicorn Experience, the friendship between Marigold and the odd but admirable […]
