Cucumber Quest is a webcomic by Gigi D.G. It takes place in a world called Dreamside, inhabited by anthropomorphic rabbits, and centres on the quest that a reluctant boy called Cucumber is sent on in order to save the world from the evil Nightmare Knight.
At present, there are six complete chapters and several interludes:
- Prologue: Thanks, Mom and Dad!
- Chapter 0: The Nightmare Knight's Return
- Chapter 1: Disaster in Paradise
- Chapter 2 : Makin' Some Noise
- Chapter 3: The Title Match
- Chapter 4: Mismastered
- Chapter 5: The Quaking Point
While available free online in its entirety, Cucumber Quest has been split into three books and sold both digitally and physically, along with bonus content, thanks to three successful Kickstarter campaigns. These books are no longer available, and a new series of books is being released by publisher First Second.
