Forest Hill is a furry webcomic by T. Rodriguez, aka Campion Lapine. The comic revolves around the daily lives of a loose-knit group of friends and their families. The first strip was published on January 1st, 2012, and was hosted at Smackjeeves until November 2018, when the author moved it to another host due to the content the comic being too disturbing for Smackjeeves.
Initially, the comic posted on Tuesday, Friday, and bi-weekly Sunday until June 2013 when the comic then went into hiatus. The format used during this initial run was that of a grey-scaled newspaper style, with a full color half-page comic on Sundays. After returning from hiatus in September 2013, the short-form strips on Tuesday and Friday went full color, and the Sunday half-page comics were discontinued; however, the author has noted that he might post a new half-page comic on occasion. In 2014 February the webcomic became weekly.
The comic takes place in a world resembling the 1990's. The world is populated by anthropomorphic animals who were created by humans in the distant past. Humans have disappeared and their technology has been lost. Their creations worship them as gods.
