Korgi: The Complete Tale by Christian Slade 

Holy cats, er, dogs, this is the most adorable, delightful thing I have read in a long time! It’s set in a forest of fairy people, where they all live with korgis. (Literally, they’re corgi dogs, like the Queen of England had, but it’s spelled with a ‘k’ because it looks kooler.) But they’re also teeny, like the fairies. The main character is a Korgi named Sprout, who goes adventuring with her fairy friend Ivy. There are weird creatures, fungi, flying machines, magic, danger, and more. And the whole comic is wordless, except for a bit of narration here and there from a frog in a wizard hat. It’s a little bit Bone, a little bit Haru, and a whole lot of adorable puppies. I don’t know how I missed it in its individual trade editions, but I was lucky enough to receive an e-galley of the whole collection, and I am so in love with it; I picked up the finished edition, which weighs almost as much as a corgi.
