Bobbins is John Allison's comic strip introducing the Tackleford universe. It ran originally from 1998 to 2002, and was then revived in 2013 for intermittent updates, including strips "retconned" into the timeline of earlier Bobbins strips, as well as "New Bobbins" strips taking place in the present day and featuring characters from Bobbins as well as other Tackleverse characters. New Bobbins strips will be added to the curious domain name bobbins.horse. An archive of old Bobbins strips is also online.
In 2015, Allison tweeted visual notes regarding the Bobbins characters.
