Tamberlane is a webcomic about a clumsy bat and her very human baby...

The animal citizens of Treehollow have discovered a small, strange creature wandering alone in the forest: a human child! And they have no idea what it is. Clearly much too young to be on her own, it’s anyone’s guess how this mysterious being, named Tamberlane, ended up in their town of Treehollow.

Fostered by Belfry, the accident-prone bat, and guided by a colorful cast of animal characters, Tamberlane’s mysteries continue to unfold. But questions burn in everyone’s minds: who, and what, is she? And could she have something to do with the far-off and unspeakable taboo, Abroad?

Rated PG-13 for themes of xenophobia and childhood neglect.

Hello everyone! We are SUPER excited to announce the public release of an EXTENSIVE edit of the first four chapters of Tamberlane! During our production of the Omnibus collection for the recently completed Kickstarter, we spent hours pouring over every page of the first Arc (Chapters 1-4), tweaking dialogue and art when needed, both for story consistency and to ensure the best telling of this story! Over the years, the Tamberlane Saga has evolved significantly, and it was super gratifying to be able to go back and make adjustments.

Don't worry! The story you know and love has not been altered! While we've made dialogue adjustments when necessary, we prioritized keeping as much of the spirit of the original as possible in every edit that was made. It was important to us not only to celebrate where the comic is going, but to preserve the spirit and art of the original work. This isn't a complete rewrite or page redraws! We think you'll be pleased with the new definitive version. We know we are!

Thank you all so much for your continued support over the years, and we hope you enjoy getting to go back and re-experience the first four chapters of Tamberlane!

We also have the Tales from Treehollow, a collection of short comics and stories that round out the world and characters of Tamberlane! They're all written by the team and drawn by independent artists, and each sale supports the indies who worked on it. Pick up some Tales from Treehollow!
