Goblin Hollow is a Furry Comic by Ralph E. Hayes (also known for Tales of the Questor and Nip and Tuck). It stars Ben Bruin, his wife Lily (a mountain lion), her younger sister Penny, and a septet of goblins (Sheldon, Velvet, Slick, Zoot, Mort, Gunther and Pif) that Ben inherited along with the old mansion they all live in.In a previous incarnation, the comic was called "Under The Lemon Tree" and the goblins weren't goblins, but aspects of Ben's subconscious brought to life (Ex. Sheldon was his intelligence, Velvet his sensitivity, Mort his pessimism, etc.)Found here. "Under The Lemon Tree" can be found here.
Goblin Hollow contains examples of:
Aborted Arc: There were hints of a mysterious past that would explain why someone of Ben's skills and intelligence was basically working as a janitor at a Woolworth's. This seems to have vanished along with the previous continuity.
Character Development: An odd case. When Penny first arrived, she was very much the Bratty Teenage Sister described above. But as time went on, we saw instances of her playingnice with the other kids, showing more goodgrace about helping out around the arcade, moments of real humor and, most importantly, ferociousprotectiveness of her family. Most of the fandom saw her as having matured out of Bratty Teenage Sister and into a Grumpy Bear with some Deadpan Snarker tendencies and a Mama Bear right beneath the surface. The cartoonist, however, still saw her as an ill-behaved brat who needed to A) be brought up short with the kind of real discipline she's never had before, and B) get the dead little sister issues at the root of her troubled personality dealt with.
Parental Abandonment: You can argue about whether sending Penny to stay with her sister counts or not, but if their parents couldn't guess (or if they did guess, they didn't warn Lily and Ben) that maybe, possibly, in theory, it was not inconceivable that Penny's issues just might have at least some of their source in her best friend's suicide, they were pretty useless anyway.
Uncle Pennybags: Ben was able to start his arcade due to an inheritance from his Uncle Phineas(a Shout-Out to P.T.Barnum)... who rather than leaving him money, left him his extensive collection... of arcade games.
