Dan Flahive is an American conservative artist and writer, and a former anthro cartoonist, who lives with his family in Mesa, Arizona, USA.[1]

Fandom involvement[edit]

Flahive stumbled upon the furry fandom's comic scene quite by accident in 1988 when he picked up a copy of artist Steve Gallacci’s Albedo Anthropomorphics at a comic book shop in Phoenix, Arizona, USA

For a number of years, Flahive could be found at the San Diego Comic Con, talking with fans, drawing in their sketchbooks, or hanging around with the Tucson Mob (including the late Michael-Scot McMurry [McMoo]), other artists like Steve Gallacci, Monika Livingstone, or Jim Groat, or other notable anthro cartoonists and writers.

Flahive was also a member of the funny animal amateur press association (APA) magazine, Rowrbrazzle, as well as being a contributing artist to other anthro publications such as Yarf!, The American Journal of Anthropomorphics, and Huzzah.

Leaving the fandom[edit]

Disgusted with his perceived "hijacking of the fandom by the zoophile and plushophile elements", Flahive left the world of funny animals behind in the late 1990s. Before leaving, he was a member of the critic ideological group, the Burned Fur, but he became disillusioned with their inability to make any major changes in the fandom’s "decaying reputation", so he quit the group, and finally walked away from the fandom.

Dan still draws anthro characters, but these days it’s for his own pleasure or the amusement of his family and friends.

Convention attendance[edit]


Flahive is the author of Space Wolf, a sci-fi space opera comic featuring a cast of genetically engineered animals in a distant galaxy in the far-flung future, which ran three issues in Steve Gallacci's Albedo.

It was later picked up as its own title by Antarctic Press for a 4-issue run, but due to a heavy workload at Dan's real life job, he only completed 2 issues. To this day, Space Wolf languishes in a portfolio in a corner of Dan's studio, where it's likely to remain unfinished.
