KinokoFry #104 – A Stormy Night

Chickens are the loveliest company.

This comic is now available as a beautiful limited edition print!

As usual, on thick, card-like 100% recycled stock. Each one comes hand stamped, individually numbered and signed with a unique little doodle.

Get it now in the store!

A quick note that I’m going to be at The National Young Writer’s Festival/TiNA in Newcastle again this year. There’ll be more info coming up, but I can tell you that I’ll be doing some workshops, talking shop and also hosting some really fun comic activities. Very excited about it!

Another splendid piece of work, Ms. Clements. Other comics may be able to make one laugh, but only yours does so while simultaneously making the reader feel so very good on the inside.


Ah, that’s convenient, someone with the same name as me has already left a comment that I agree with. Saves me from having to make my own comment.


Hi Rebecca,

I just came across your awesome drawings today. What a great find. Your comic certainly made my day. I love today’s comic. Is there any plan to make it a print?

I so gonna get the bundle print now.


Wow, that was clever and adorable and lotsa other things and thank you. You restore my faith in creativity every time!


Yay! Great comic! :] Why did you name your comic KinokoFry?


Someone asked me on Formspring awhile ago which you can read here.

But to make it easier, here’s what I wrote:

It’s a long and uninteresting story!

When I decided to make a webcomic, I had no plan. I had hardly done more than 5 comics previously. So creating a webcomic was just some motivation to make some comics, and I had to come up with a name for the website.

My internet nickname at the time was “Kinoko”. “Kinoko” is Japanese for “mushroom”, which was a food, a plant and a word I liked okay, as well as having a fondness for ‘k’ words, for no reason whatsoever. But I wanted a word that wouldn’t already exist EVERYWHERE on the internet, so I could call it my own.

A few years back, I had joined a forum Patrick Alexander created for chickennation.com, which required both a first and last name. So I added “Fry”, because “Kinoko Fry ” made no actual sense, but could be read in a number of different ways. I suppose I also liked Futurama and Stephen Fry.

It seemed like a good name.

The fact that I eventually started drawing mushroom characters has absolutely no relation to the name, but it works out pretty nicely, I guess!

So yeah.


Please make this into something wearable, so that everyone can see it as I parade around the proverbial town square declaring my adoration for it!
