A Doemain of Our Own is an online furry comic created by furry artist SusanDeer. The story concerns the life of a doe writer named Sue Hartland and the strange adventures she finds herself in, as well as her hectic social life.

The collection A Doemain of Our Own, Vol. 1 won the 2006 Ursa Major Award for Best Anthropomorphic Other Literary Work. A second volume, Shift Happens was released in 2007.

Premise[edit]

In the webcomic's beginning, the plot revolved around the romantic life of Sue and her husband, Eric, paralleling the real life of the comic's creator (Sue Rankin) and her husband. In a way, this reflected the model of the non-furry comic For Better or For Worse, which is modeled somewhat on the real life of its creator, Lynn Johnston.

Real life issues invaded the strip (Sue was forced to have a hysterectomy, leaving her barren, and eventually breaking up her RL marriage), and the character of Eric was written out in late 2004, leaving Susan single in the series. She has recently been dating a tiger named Bennie; although his sexuality is at times ambiguous, it is clear that Bennie is romantically interested in Sue.

The comic often deals with light-hearted and fantastic issues, such as despite being an herbivore, Sue has some canine teeth due to her mixed parentage. Also, during one story arc it was revealed the Sue was a descendant of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, leading to her being "drafted" one Christmas eve to lead Santa's sleigh team.

Characters[edit]

Among the major recurring characters in the comic strip are the title characters of Vinci & Arty, who are neighbors and close friends with Sue. The plots of the two comics sometimes parallel each other, so Sue and other Doemain characters have supporting roles in Vinci & Arty.

Sue also has two non-anthro pet cats, Gwynn and Ginger, who are frequently the subject of their own adventures. Both are sentient to a certain degree and able to "talk" to each other, but incapable of verbally communicating with their owner or other sentient characters beyond typical purring, attacking and demanding attention, similar to Garfield and Odie from Garfield.

Strip cancellation[edit]

It was announced in 2007 that the strip would end soon, and would be replaced with periodic comic books.[1]
