Cover of the 1st comic strip collection book
The Suburban Jungle was a webcomic written and drawn by John "The Gneech" Robey and colored by K. "Hikaru" Dickinson. It is set in a fictional urban community and centers around the life of its star, Tiffany Tiger (a model/TV personality), and her circle of friends and associates. Among the numerous other characters appearing in the strip are her roommate Yin the Panda, her boyfriend Leonard Lion (owner of The Watering Hole, a frequent setting), and Dover Cheetah, a computer nerd who tries to woo Tiffany but eventually marries her sister, Comfort, and Drezzer Wolf, Tiffany's agent.
The world of The Suburban Jungle is like our own, but solely populated by anthropomorphic animals. Predation (in the style of Kevin and Kell) exists, but with many laws, written and moral, concerning where and when a kill may be made. The Suburban Jungle was first published online 1 February 1999, and ended its run on November 6, 2009. The full archive is available on the web. Four books have been published by Plan Nine Publishing.
When it absolutely positively needs to be pouched overnight

's Avalon, an entire magically-hidden city. (comic
Housepets! is an anthropomorphic webcomic by Rick Griffin. The comic is loosely based upon a series of sketches created in Griffin's childhood about a dog named Bino, who also appears as a supporting character in the comic as it exists today. Griffin came up with the idea of expanding his sketches into a full webcomic in 2006, drew up a few rough strips in 2007, and unveiled the comic itself on June 2, 2008. Housepets! won the 2009 Ursa Major Award for Best Comic Strip
The primary setting is Babylon Gardens, a suburban neighborhood somewhere within the United States. Most animals are sentient; most mammals are fully anthropomorphized, able to walk and talk, and live double their normal lifespan. Animals also enjoy certain rights (for example, a police dog can arrest humans), but wild animals not kept as pets have no legal status. Pets are regarded much like surrogate children, referring to their owners as "Mom" and "Dad" as well as adopting their surnames, and may be kept by humans who opt not to have children of their own.
The plot centers around Peanut Butter and Grape Jelly, pets of the Sandwich family, and their various misadventures. Most strips depict Peanut and Grape dealing with common problems, such as coping with boredom, visiting the vet, and interacting with other pets. Some pay tribute to Griffin's inspirations; one full arc is a homage to familiar scenes from Bill Watterson
's Calvin and Hobbes
, and the faces of most humans in the comic are never seen, as for adults in Charles Schulz
Code Name: Hunter is a webcomic by Darcy "Darc" Sowers and Matt "Gyrfalcon" Sowers that follows the adventures of Max (Hunter) McConnor, a gray mouse employed by The Royal Center of Special Investigations (RCSI), a branch of the British government.
RCSI's purpose is to investigate odd occurrences such as disappearances, diplomatic missions, ritualistic murders, vampires, werewolves, and rampaging fey.
Code Name: Hunter
started in 2001 as a series of illustrations; it was reborn in webcomic form in August 2003. Financial supporters get the comic an issue ahead of regular readers. (comic
Exterminatus Now is a webcomic drawn in Sonic-style, following the adventures of two Inquisitors, a mercenary, and a daemon hunter as they fight the many evil and dangerous creatures that inhabit the world of Mobius. It is written mostly by Garry "Lothar" Webber and drawn by Alan "The Virus" Graham, with contributions by Martin "Silversword" Faulkner and Stuart "Eastwood" Edney.
The comic has many references to the Sonic the Hedgehog series. The setting is the same Mobius referred to in the English-speaking video games. Lothar resembles Knuckles the Echidna, while Eastwood bears a passing resemblance to Miles "Tails" Prower, much to the artist's irritation. Chao like Blasphemy were created in Sonic Adventure - and, in one comic, Lothar tells how he was turned down from appearing in the Sonic games in preference to Shadow. There are also numerous Warhammer 40,000 references; the name of the comic itself is taken from Imperial doctrine.
The comic and its setting is a parody of a fan project which tried to create a new Mobius with a deeper backstory and history; a full mythology, political and social set-up. The project has been underway for years with no sign of completion. (comic
Anakuro is a webcomic written by furry artists Ana (Stacie Pasman) and Kuro (George Takahashi). The slice-of-life comic follows the two title characters through events that sometimes parallel the lives of its creators, and takes place in a world populated by anthropomorphic animals whose species reflect their ethnicity.
The comic currently updates on a bi-monthly schedule, but is due to return to weekly updates in May 2009. Strips are presented in greyscale, and distributed under the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0
Tails From the Mynarski Forest is a webcomic by Richard T. Matheson, centering on Skippy, a twitchy but good-natured cottontail rabbit, and his sociopathic red vixen denmate Liska. It debuted on 20 May 1997 and is updated weekly. Older strips, which went by the name Skippy and Liska, were also mirrored on Yerf.
Liska's character was originally inspired by the character Liska Bystrouska (Czech for "Vixen Sharp-ears") from Rudolph Tesnohlidek's novel The Cunning Little Vixen
. Much like her Czech counterpart, the Liska of the comic is crude, brutish, and often tactless. She is also a terrible hunter and has learned to subsist on roadkill and discarded human
food, her favorite food being gophers. (comic
Furthia High is a furry webcomic by QuetzaDrake. It is about a human teenager that attends his first year of public high school in a world completely populated by furries.
The comic began in June of 2005, and went on hiatus at the end of 2007. Upon its return, the story had restarted. The old archives are still online and available for reading. In April of 2008, the comic moved from its home of almost 3 years on Comic Genesis to its own server space hosted by Concession.
At the end of July 2008, QuetzaDrake began to put up Spanish, French, and Dutch translations of the English comics in their own sections of the site, with possibilities of Hebrew translations in the future. In August 2008, German, Central American Spanish and Hebrew translations were added, with Italian translations on the way. (comic
The Over The Hedge comic strip is the work of Michael Fry and T. Lewis. Fry is the writer, Lewis is the artist. They first worked together in 1992 on Mickey Mouse comic strips. Each has had success on their own, with Fry as a screenwriter and Lewis illustrating children's books. They live in separate parts of the United States, collaborating electronically on the strip. The strip first appeared in 1995. Four book collections have been published: Over The Hedge, Over The Hedge 2, Knights Of The Picnic Table, and Stuffed Animals.
The strips are not afraid to tackle difficult subject matter. Everything from celebrity worship to stem cell
research has appeared. In 1998, a series of strips had the characters considering the origin of humanity and the likelihood of reincarnation
. The strips were awarded the Religious Communicators Council’s 1998 Wilbur Award for "excellence in the communication of religious issues, values and themes." (comic
Circles is a gay-themed slice-of-life comic written by Stephen Domanski and Andrew French, with art by K-9.
The comic deals primarily with six characters inhabiting a house at the fictional address of 6 Kinsey Circle (a pun on the Kinsey scale, where a rating of six means that the subject is exclusively homosexual). The first four issues focus on Marty and his way out of the closet and towards his first love, while later issues develop the other characters.
The setting is Boston, in the early years of the 21st century. The first issue is dated Spring 2001, and each issue corresponds to one season of time, so the latest issue as of this writing, issue #7, is Fall 2002.
is published by Rabbit Valley
and is available through their website
. There are seven issues of the comic as of January 2008, and one anthology collecting the first four issues. (more...
Concession is a furry webcomic by Immelmann based around the employees of a movie theater concession stand. Its humor varies wildly between themes of violence, parody, and increasingly frequent adult situations.
Launched in July 2006, the comic now updates in color twice a week. Initially, the comic focused on the characters as they acted behind the stand, but over time it moved to show them outside of work, mostly at home or school. (comic
Sequential Art is a webcomic of furry interest created by Phillip M. Jackson. The series' Earth uses the same set-up as our present world, except that is is populated with a combination of anthropomorphic and human beings.
Sequential Art mixes the "slice of life" genre with a peppered pinch of video game insights, covered in layer of geek culture pathos. Its tale follows the hopelessly intertwined interactions of a group of mismatched anthropomorphic room mates, and the poor human graphic designer that allowed them to stay in his apartment.
A book of collected strips, Sequential Art Volume 1
, was released through Lulu
in October 2007. (comic
Entre Nous (French for Between Us) is about a group of furry characters living together in the fictional town of Mercer Bay. The humour comes from the seemingly constant failure of the ambitions of the cast. The comic is written by Matthew Johnston and drawn by Richard Van Cleave, and started on 30 October 2006.
The comic normally updated every Monday and Thursday. However, on 15 October 2007, the creators announced that due to pressure of work, the comic would be replaced with an irregular series of one-shot stories. A print collection of strips and extras is in development. (comic

#6) was published through Lulu.com in September 2007. (comic

The comic centers around their day to day lives, which often involves getting into (and out of) trouble. Also included are the parents of the main characters. Some are not around due to living situation, or other problems. The comic has several science fiction
undertones, as the world the characters live in is rather advanced (sporting technology such as beam swords, hover vehicles, and force-fields). (comic - more
A Doemain of Our Own has been drawn by SusanDeer since 24 April 1999. The comic covers the life of a doe writer named Sue Hartland, the strange adventures she finds herself in, and her hectic social life.
In the beginning, the plot dealt with Sue's romantic life with her husband. Real life issues invaded the strip, and the character of Eric was written out in late 2004, leaving Susan single. She has recently been dating a tiger named Bennie. Other regulars include characters from Vinci & Arty and Sue's non-anthro pet cats, Gwynn and Ginger.
The collection A Doemain of Our Own, Vol. 1

The comic features the daily life of Artisan P. Sunspot (Arty), a Yumar with a craving for Krispy Kreme donuts, and Richard Nicolaides (Vinci), an anthropomorphic raccoon attracted to "shinees". It is published every Tuesday.
The central events of the comic are parallels to the real life of the authors and the strip is usually in black and white. Although the title characters form a gay couple, much of their interaction is almost indistinguishable from a heterosexual couple.
Vinci & Arty
was first published in February of 2003. In November of 2005, Vinci & Arty
introduced the AskArty Show, an Internet radio program that was broadcast until recently every Wednesday through the LT3M
website. The show is offline due to scheduling matters, but has not been wholly abandoned. (comic
Jewel Vixens is a online furry webcomic co-written by Aelius and Steven Swanson, the comic's main artist. It follows the adventures of eight anthropomorphic vixens living in the 1970s as models while working as undercover agents for a mysterious benevolent organization called F.U.T.U.R.E.
Jewel Vixens parodies 1960s and 1970s spy media such as Danger: Diabolik
, James Bond
, Charlie's Angels
, and Mission: Impossible
. It also references local pop culture of the era and employs many popular stereotypes of the era in a comedic fashion while at the same time lampooning the popularity of vixens
within the furry fandom and vixen jokes
Bristled is a webcomic by Stephanie Mebius centered around the lives of three female roommates - Azraelle the raccoon, Beth the rabbit, and Ruac the cheetah. Started unofficially on deviantART in the summer of 2006, Bristled was given its own domain and website on 30 November.

USA; the locale is unspecified, but is generally considered to be an urban environment. (comic

, Jenny Curtis
and Kathy Grrsn

Gold Digger is an manga-like action/adventure/fantasy/science fiction comic book written and drawn by Fred Perry, and published by Antarctic Press. Originally appearing as a series of serialized, 4-page short story segments in the pages of Mangazine #11-14 in 1992, it featured the high-adventure hijinks of Gina Diggers and her adopted were-cheetah sister Britanny.
Fred turned the story into a four-issue Gold Digger miniseries published in 1992 and 1993, and though sales were fairly low (barely over a thousand copies for each issue), he continued the comic as a bi-monthly black and white comic book series beginning in 1993.

Captain Carrot and His Amazing Zoo Crew is a DC Comics comic book property about a team of funny animal superheroes called the Zoo Crew. Published from 1982 to 1983, it was created by Roy Thomas and Scott Shaw!.
The team originated while Superman was investigating a strange phenomenon causing the citizens of Metropolis to begin acting like their primate ancestors. He found a ray streaking at him from a strange barrier surrounding the Earth, and used a meteorite as protection. When the ray struck the meteorite, Superman and the meteor's fragments were sent from Superman's native dimension into Earth-C. There, Superman met several of the world's residents, who had gained superpowers when they were struck by the various meteor fragments.
The animals and Superman soon teamed up to stop the source of the ray, which turned out to be Starro, a sentient starfish. After defeating the villain, the animals decided to stick together and form the Zoo Crew, and Superman returned home. Although the series lasted only 20 issues, the characters still appear occasionally in cameos in the DC Universe.(more...)
Lackadaisy is a webcomic created by Tracy J. Butler and set in a Prohibition-era 1927 St. Louis inhabited by anthropomorphic cats. The plot follows the fortunes of the Lackadaisy Speakeasy after its owner died, leaving the establishment to his wife.

Atomic Mouse is a pioneer of the funny animal comic genre that first appeared in March 1953 and continued for 54 issues through June 1963. The creation of the series is credited to cartoonist Al Fago, but his brother Vince Fago invented the character and did many of the stories. Atomic Mouse was the first and most successful superhero series from Charlton Comics, running into the 1960's with original material and occasional reprinted runs thereafter into the 1970's.
Atomic Mouse was briefly reprinted in the '80s by the American Comics Group, and saw a revival through Shanda Fantasy Arts, first appearing in SFA Spotlight #11 in May 2001, and getting his own series in September 2001. Vince Fago, the creator and original artist, gave his blessing and even contributed some art for the new version. The new comics juxtaposed reprints of Vince Fago's original series with all-new stories and art in which Atomic Mouse is "transported" from the classic comics into modern-day "reality" to protect the city of Rodentia. The series is currently on hiatus.
In the original comic, Atomic Mouse protected the citizens of Mouseville from the evil Count Gatto and his sidekick Shadow with the help of superpowers gained from U-235 pills developed by Professor Invento.
In the new series, a planet of funny animals is threatened by a meteor and Professor LaSerne creates a machine that brings images to life, placing an Atomic Mouse comic in front of it. Atomic Mouse subsequently goes to the publishers of the comic, and they provide him a home and headquarters from which he protects the city of Rodentia from such villians as the Mustard King, Professor Pizarro and Super Rat.

Main characters include:
- Viana Doesulen, a white-tailed deer and resident grouch who always seems to find herself in the most outrageous situations at work.
- Velvet Hairyson, a horse who can be cheerful to the point of irritation, somehow managing to stay carefree while also being very intelligent.
- Thomas Millwood, another deer who, while normally an easy-going guy, has a hidden violent streak that shows itself on rare occasions.
- Woola Ramson, sheep and faithful friend to Viana, always there to make her friend laugh or just offer a shoulder to lean on. (more... - comic)
Lacunae, the Book of Missing Spaces (usually just Lacunae) is a furry comic by artist Silverblue about a near-future post-disease Australia inhabited by both Changelings (the diseased) and Purebloods (the clean). The strip began on February 1st, 2002, and continues through the present, although there was a long gap of three years in between. The author is currently updating it between one and three times a week.
The comic centers around a group of antagonists (Crimson's Haemophage Pack) and protagonists (the Changeling Control Division of Saint Kilda). A third group, the owners and inhabitants of the Hotel Nevertel, appears to maintain a neutral stomping ground for a mixture of Changelings and Purebloods.
Crimson's pack are a group of blood drinking Changelings, called Haemophages, which are murderous and half mad. While not entirely evil, they often commit atrocious acts, unable to control their appetites. By comparison, the CCD is a highly controlled group of Purebloods and Changelings who work to try and bring peace to both Changeling and Pureblood communities. While there are chemical suppressants which can enable a Changeling to be non-infectious and suppress their darker sides, the drugs have painful and occasionally terminal side effects. The issue of how to humanely handle Changelings is a difficult one in the Lacunae world, and has been solved variously through execution, gulags, drug regimes, or counseling. At the moment, no clear solution is present.
So far, Hawthorn of the CCD has become involved with Silverblue of Crimson's pack, interfering in her attempt to 'rescue' an ex-pack member on suppressants who was in hospital dying of an aggressive cancer. Rather than allow her to 'infect' the dying patient again, Hawthorn shot her with a living bullet. Silverblue has since run into the Commeddia, strange mask wearing creatures who removed the burrowing bullet. (more... - comic (mature audiences) )
21st Century Fox: Romantic Comedy of the Future is a webcomic that debuted (in its current form) on February 14th, 1999. It currently updates Mondays and Fridays, sometimes making use of animated GIF files for special effects.
The strip is written and drawn by Scott Kellogg, and follows the exploits of Jack Black, a fox, Cecil Stuart, a giraffe, and various other anthropomorphic animal characters in the high tech future world of 2066. Jack is a traveling engineer, roaming from one assignment to the next, repairing equipment for TLATech in his high powered 2066 Thunderbird. (more... - comic - high-res)
TwoKinds is a webcomic created by Tom Fischbach, following the adventures of Trace Legacy and his companions, Flora and Keith. It has run since 22 October 2003, and updates three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays.
The world of TwoKinds is made up of at least three races: humans, Keidran and Basitin. The latter two races are "furry", with the Keidran having at least three clans - tiger, wolf, and fox. The three races have various levels of animosity toward each other; most humans and Keidran have a good deal of contempt and hatred for the other race, and some Keidran have been shown as slaves to humans.
The main characters, especially Trace, appear to be pawns in the games of the demi-gods who created the races. The fact that Trace and Flora have fallen in love seems to have put a crimp in some of their plans; others are to be determined. [more... - comic]
Kevin and Kell is a web-based comic strip created by Bill Holbrook staring a cast of anthropomorphic characters. It has run daily since September 1995.
The comic is based around Kevin and Kell Dewclaw, a married couple consisting of a rabbit and wolf, respectively, who have a son, Rudy, and two daughters, Lindesfarne and Coney. Kevin runs an ISP out of his house, and most storylines revolve around funny and sometimes touching slice-of-life situations that often play off of the fact that all of the characters are animals. (more... - comic)
Y? (often spoken as "Y question mark", not simply "Y") is a furry comic by artist Chad Burbidge about lesbians living in this day and age. The strip began in August 2004 and continues through to the present, currently being updated a couple of times a week.
While made for a mature audience, the comic isn't about sex: it's about life. The characters are real, down to earth, and could be seen in any comic outside of the furry realm. The dialogue is believable, and the art is very stylised - with the only colors being black, white, and shades of blue - and are definitely distinguishing features of the strip. (more... - comic)
Extinctioners is a science fiction, action and adventure comic book that follows in the superhero genre, but uses anthropomorphic animals as its main characters. Written and drawn by Shawntae Howard, its original release in 1998 was by the independent comic book company Vision Comics. After a year of hiatus it was picked up by Shanda Fantasy Arts, which publishes it quarterly. There have been a total of 16 issues and 3 annuals as of February 2006.
Extinctioners follows a group of characters on the planet Alden, who learn that they are hybrids possessing special powers, and that their creators are on their way back to their planet with plans of taking over. The humanoid animals (or humanimals) were genetic constructs created by humans. A miscalculation in a wormhole's temporal properties caused the humans to lose contact with the humanimals, leaving them alone on the planet for years.
Without direct guidance, the humanimals developed on their own and would eventually create a social structure suitable for their vastly diverse races. Now with the memory of mankind vague in the social conscious, humans, or The Makers, have been elevated to an virtual deity status among much of the humanimal population. The humans, however, are still on their way to Alden, and the Extinctioners are the only ones that know that they are coming. (more... - comic)
The Mink is a long running action/adventure story created by Kjartan "Karno" Arnorsson that ran in the pages of Genus and Savage Funnies for nearly a decade.
The story centers primarily around Laura, better-known as the magically adept and exceedingly well-endowed superheroine "The Mink". Once a gawky, unimpressive teenager, Laura finds a grimoire of exceptional power, abandons her studies, and throws herself head-first into learning magic, finding that she had an amazing talent for spellcraft. Now well over six feet tall, exceptionally strong, and with a body that no man could resist, The Mink set about to being a far stronger woman than she had ever been as "Little Laura".
The Mink ran as a serial-format story, beginning in the original issue of Genus in 1994 with The Mink saving her old friend Shelly from an alleyway mugger. When Genus changed to "adults only" after issue #4, the flavour of the story changed dramatically. No longer bound to a "soft R" rating, Karno was free to include quite a bit of violence and his trademark over-the-top sex.
After the twenty-third entry of the serial, the curtain unofficially closed on The Mink. While Karno has not stated that the story is over as it stands, there have been no new chapters in a number of years. (more...)
Inverloch is a fantasy comic drawn in manga style and authored by Sarah Ellerton. New pages are added late Wednesday night/Thursday morning and, recently, on Monday morning as well.
The story of Inverloch centers around a young man named Acheron, from a horned wolf-like race called the da'kor. After a chance encounter with an elf, he finds himself setting out on a seemingly innocent mission - that of trying to locate Kayn'dar, another elf who has been missing for the past twelve years.
Meeting up with new friends and companions along the way, Acheron quickly begins to learn that the world is not quite the peaceful place he believed it to be - embroiled with prejudice, racial segregation, and hidden danger. And the truth behind Kayn'dar's disappearance is something none of the party would ever expect...
Inverloch was nominated for the 2005 Web Cartoonist's Choice Awards in four categories, eventually winning the award for Outstanding Fantasy Comic. (more... - comic)
Sabrina Online is one of the best-known furry comics, with over 350 strips produced by artist Eric W. Schwartz since September 1996. The comic follows the life of a skunkette named Sabrina, a computer geek who works at the Double Z pornography studio as a graphics designer.
Despite her workplace, Sabrina is shy, and does not get involved in the videos outside of making the VHS and DVD covers, no matter how much her employer Zig Zag may wish otherwise. She's 22 years old, has a raccoon boyfriend (R.C. Raccoon), and conservative parents, as well as a considerably younger sister named Tabitha.
The comic has given birth to several fan projects in the 'SabrinaVerse', including Sabrina Online: The Story and the Sabrina Online Radio Play. Updates typically come as four black-and-white strips at the beginning of each month. (more... - comic)
Better Days is a comedy/drama comic written by Jay Naylor. The strip began on April 18, 2003 and continues through the present. It is updated twice weekly on Mondays and Fridays.
Better Days is about Fisk and Lucy Black, two fraternal twin siblings growing up in the U.S. state of Georgia, and their mother, Sheila. All of the Blacks are cats. The comic is divided up into "chapters" (story arcs) of varying length, each one portraying a significant and sometimes difficult episode in the life of the Blacks. Fisk and Lucy are also seen in Badly Drawn Kitties by Mat Sherer.
The comic is known for its conservative outlook, as well as for featuring controversial and sensitive issues such as incest, the Vietnam war, racial issues (Jews are represented as mice, African-Americans as hyenas), rape, and sexual abuse. There is profanity and some violence, but the comic is not sexually explicit. (more... - comic)
The Bohemians has been authored and drawn by Sophie Cabra since August 2004. Inspired by the Broadway musical RENT, the web comic deals with many of the same social issues as the musical, including (but not limited to) poverty, LGBT and HIV, and the main characters are intended to be examples of Bohemianism.
Just like RENT, the comic is set in Alphabet City, Manhattan, but the time setting is the present day (mid-2000s). As such, it's unlikely the main characters have the same 11th St. and Avenue A address as the main characters of the musical, since Avenue A has been redeveloped since the musical's time setting.
The comic's setting is unique in that species tends to be connected to gender - all males are canine and all females are feline. There is also a distinction made between Wild and Domesticated canines and felines, and species tension similar to real-world racial tension is hinted at, including mild violence and language. (more... - comic)
Las Lindas is a webcomic created by Chalo in El Salvador, partially written and hosted by SoulKat in California, with assistance and additional writing by ID_Fox in Kentucky. This unlikely team has provided Las Lindas on a weekly update schedule with one full color page (recently upgraded to two) per week. Las Lindas began on 6 September 2004, and has continued through 85 comics.
Las Lindas is focused around a cow, Mora Linda, who has recently inherited her father's farm and homestead. In honor of her parent's passing, she decides that she must continue the family business of traditional farming on the now antiquated and dilapidated Las Lindas vegetable farm. Mora is strong-willed, blunt, and independent, but she is quickly overwhelmed by the work and is confronted with the challenge of building a team of workers to help her with the farm by non-traditional means.

Note: This Comic of the Week was an April Fools joke. See the complete front page for that day.
Shawn Keller's Horrifying Look at the Furries is a well-considered and comprehensive review of the fandom in comic book form. Its 32 pages touch on almost every part of the community, from plushies and pawpets to FurBid amd fursuits.
Shawn's rendering is touchingly detailed at times, and it is clear that his love for the fandom is second only to his love for those in it.

The Class Menagerie is a furry webcomic written and illustrated by Vince Suzukawa. The series ran for four years on Keenspot and ended in 2002, though the website continues to run reruns as classic TCM. The story is a college life comedy with a developed background story. Most installments are in a traditional comic style, but deeper and more serious story arcs unfold towards the end.
TCM takes place on the third floor of Richter Hall in Redwood Dorm at fictional DeMontfort University in California. It centers around the lives of nine university students who live in the rooms of this floor.
The furry fandom is the comic's primary audience. TCM and its characters continue to be popular, years after the series finished. (more)
Furfire is a furry web comic by Angela Beaman, otherwise known as Silverfox Relahstar. The comic is separated into many arcs of variable length, and is updated on a weekly basis.
Furfire originates from a story Angela wrote in the early 1990s named The Twilight Magic Project. She put the project on hold for a while as she experimented with Furcadia, which eventually led her back to the project with renewed interest. Angela added the concept of "furmentials" and their powers over the elements and rechristened the project Furfire. In 2002, Terry Bailey joined as a scriptwriter.
The story begins in the city of Talla'doon. Three races populate the world of Furfire: Humans, faffurs (anthropomorphic animals), and furmentials (faffurs with magical elemental powers). Later, due to a strange incident at an ancient temple, the story shifts to the world of the past. (more...)
Jack is created by David Hopkins and debuted on 1 March 2001. It has an overall storyline based around Hell, sin, and redemption, woven into individual story arcs. The comic varies between black and white and color presentation, and centers around decidedly mature themes.
Jack prominently features Hell and its Seven Sins, but also Heaven, as well as angels. The two forces do not fight each other much - for the most part they appear to work together without any major problems, although this may be due to the focus on Jack, a rather ragged green rabbit in rags, the most amenable of the Sins.
On occasion, strips are published which pertain to real world events, like the Angry Brian story arc which depicted events similar to those of the horrific Columbine High School Massacre, and which sparked heavy feedback, earning the comic a large reader base. Other features of the comic include the appearance of real places like the former World Trade Center.
The comic can be morbid, but it has its tender moments and optimistic highlights. Not all the characters of the comic are doomed to Hell for eternity. They all have a chance to eventually live on earth again as a test to see if they have "learned" from their previous life's mistakes; if so, they are admitted to heaven.
Newshounds is a humorous webcomic drawn and written by Thomas K. Dye. The comic updates every weekday from Monday through Friday, and it is hosted on the Internet by the online comics syndicate Keenspot.
The comic follows a group of anthropomorphic pet animals and their human owner, living in an unnamed American city and together operating a small news station, KPET. There are eight central characters and several minor characters with recurring roles.
Newshounds used characters whose bases came from an earlier comic strip Boy Shop Pets, also by Thomas K. Dye. In 2003, Dye began a graphic novel, Manifestations.
Furrlough is an anthology comic specializing in anthropomorphic adventure, currently published by Radio Comix. It holds the honor of being one of the longest-running anthologies in the American comic industry, independent or otherwise, and has maintained its monthly publication schedule faithfully since 1993.
Originally released by Antarctic Press in November 1991 with the intent of specializing in military tales of an anthropomorphic nature, the focus of the book slowly shifted to "military and adventure" and eventually just "adventure", as the tone of submissions to the anthology likewise shifted. Although Antarctic's founder Ben Dunn launched the title as its editor, the company's needs compelled him to pass the role on to the contributing duo of Shon Howell and Brian Sutton, who acted as co-editors from issues #2 - #17.
Elin Winkler took over editing with issue #18, with Furrlough running for a total of 51 issues at Antarctic Press. At that time, AP's success in promoting non-anthro comic titles such as Warrior Nun Areala prompted the company to reinvest its resources in an attempt to concentrate more effort behind its breakout titles. The anthro comics, which sold at a small but steady profit, were cut loose in order to make the necessary capital available.
Ms. Winkler (along with a number of other pro-anthropomorphism stalwarts) immediately founded Radio Comix, which took these discarded titles, including Furrlough, under its wing. The reliable profitability of these titles, however small it might be from month to month, allowed Radio to remain solvent and build its fortunes at a steady pace. Furrlough has since surpassed issue #150, recently celebrating its 14th anniversary edition. (more...)
West Corner Of the Park is a comic based around the denizens of FurryMUCK, although it often comments on issues of interest to the wider furry community. It has been drawn on a weekly basis by Jim Groat since July 1997, and coloured by Cuprohastes since July 2003.
The name of the strip is derived from FurryMUCK - the real West Corner of The Park is the centre of the FurryMUCK universe, being the place where new characters emerge from (under the bandstand), and is generally the focal point of much of the MUCK's activity.
The many running gags at WCotP include:
The strip usually takes a break the week during and sometimes before a convention attended by Groat, followed by the previous weekend's public art jam before new strips resume. The deaths of prominent artists and entertainers are also noted in strips. (comic - more)
Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures (or DMFA) is a furry web comic by Amber Panyko. It updates three times a week, normally on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, and recently celebrated its 600th strip. The comic is partially based off of the online game Furcadia and several of the main characters are based off of the artist's friends there.
DMFA began in 1998, when Amber promised a shrine of sorts on Furcadia to anyone who could find a particular song for her. When a friend who went by the name of Daniel Ti'Fiona found the song in question, Amber made good on her promise and created the shrine. As a joke, she added a sign proclaiming "Coming soon: the Misadventures of Daniel Ti'Fiona, the comic!" Daniel took this seriously and prodded her to start the comic until she gave in, posting the first comic in 1999.
Initially featuring Daniel and Miss Mab, the cast of the comic soon expanded, including both friends of Amber's on Furcadia and characters of her own creation. Later on in 1999, the comic fell into a hiatus for about a year. Amber resumed comic production in 2000, and the comic has been updating steadily ever since.
The comic's arcs revolve around the adventures and misadventures of the cast. Most of these exploits are whimsical and humorous, sometimes parodizing aspects of popular culture. Most events occur in or around an inn/pub called Lost Lake. The first five arcs are in black and white. Starting in the middle of the sixth arc, the comic has been in color. (comic - more...)
Tales of the Questor is a webcomic by Ralph Hayes, Jr., who is also the creator of Nip and Tuck and Goblin Hollow. It tells the story of Quentyn, a young 'Rac Conan Daimh' who grows up as a farmer's son in the land of the Seven Villages, a place set in pseudo-medieval times.
The Rac Conan Daimh (a race of anthropomorphic raccoons) are the wielders of a power called Lux which has magical properties, such as telekinesis. Quentyn has almost no Lux himself, which leaves him in an awkward position in his community. Enchanted by the adventure stories he reads of the adventuresome Questors, he aspires to live up to the heroic characters he idolizes. This is not immediately welcomed by his community, as the office of Questor has been vacant for over a century.
Quentyn receives encouragement from a magical white stag who appears to him while he is contemplating his future. With the combination of a malfunctioning magic sword, a night of drinking, and stumbling into a wizard's workshop, he goes off in search of his future. (comic - more...)
Freefall is written and drawn by Mark Stanley and hosted at Purrsia. It is updated three times a week, and celebrated its thousandth strip in August 2004. It is in black and white, but the first 388 strips are also available in fan-colored versions.
Freefall is a humorous science fiction story detailing the misadventures of the starship Savage Chicken and its crew: Sam Starfall, a lovable alien con artist; Helix, a childlike robot; and Florence Ambrose, a genetically engineered "Bowman's Wolf" (an anthropomorphic canine). The comic's seven years has so far covered only a few days' activity in the story.
Stanley began writing and drawing Freefall on 30 March 1998 as a feature for the occasional furry zine, Yarf!, with the intent of telling the actual story behind the characters, some of which also appear at the Cross Time Cafe. (comic - more...)
Faux Pas (pronounced "fox paws") is a comic strip created by Robert and Margaret Carspecken. The name is a play on the phrase faux pas, a social blunder. The central characters are the foxes Randy and Cindy.
Faux Pas originally appeared in newspaper spot illustrations and one-panel gags in late 1970's Boulder, Colorado. The characters have appeared in newspapers, newsletters, fanzines, comic books, APAs, and art shows since then, but were only redrawn into a coherent series in 2001, using scripts written in the 1980's.
Faux Pas won the 2005 Ursa Major Award for "Best Anthropomorphic Comic Strip". A book based on the comic was published by Plan Nine Publishing in October 2003. (comic - more...)
