A Guide to The Adventures of Ashley Plath
Here are a few things to aid you in following along or catching up.
Each series is told in a numbered group of comic strips. For example, Series 1, Number 3, is the third strip in Series 1. You can see all the pages in a series by scrolling down the sidebar to the list of labels (titled "Where The Girls Are") and clicking on the series number.
[Please note: due to the Blogger format, the posts are in reverse order. To view the series in the chronological order you need to go back in the archive and work your way forward.]
In addition to the main series, the SSK Girls have individual and group pictures. These are used to give you a sense of the characters and provide background which doesn't fit in the regular, numbered series. Click on a character name in the labels list (titled "Where The Girls Are" near the bottom of the sidebar) to see the pictures featuring that character.
See also The Files for a background on each character.
Ashley and the girls are looking for information regarding the disappearance of their friend, Emily. Together they devise a scheme to go undercover whilst offering custom-made events for an exclusive clientele.
