WIGU by Jeffrey Rowland focuses on Wigu Tinkle and the rest of his family. Wigu's favorite television show is Magical Adventures in Space with Topato and Sheriff Pony. A great part of the immediacy of webcomics is the general acceptance by creators and fans of fan art based on the webcomic. Not all fan art, however, makes such extensive use of fine art as this group of pieces dropping Topato into works by artists such as Hopper, Warhol and Van Gogh.
