Faux Pas #588

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...)
