Lucy the Octopus
Lucy the Octopus is a weekly webcomic about a teenage girl who happens to be an octopus.
Lucy is staggeringly unpopular both at home and school. Still our heroine soldiers on, armed with a guitar, a pufferfish and the occasional Chunky Muffin shake.
“Inventive and witty, with a colourful cast of characters, Lucy the Octopus remains one of the most engaging UK originated webcomics out there.” Andy Oliver, Broken Frontier
