The Guild is a comedy web series created by Felicia Day about a group of online gamers. The show started in 2007, and for the first season, was solely supported by loyal fans through Paypal, before Kickstarter was created. From seasons 2-5 the show was sponsored by Xbox in a groundbreaking web video deal that kept the show independently owned. It ended its run on YouTube in 2012 with the final season 6. The Guild Library Edition collects the two original The Guild trades, a one-shot comic, and an unpublished story in a deluxe, oversize format hardcover.
