Mowgli with Grey Brother

Mowgli is a fictional feral child character created by Rudyard Kipling. His first appearance was in the 1893 short story In the Rukh where he appears as an adult. This was shortly followed by Mowgli's Brothers, which became the first of three Mowgli stories in The Jungle Book. Five more stories about Mowgli appeared in The Second Jungle Book (1895). Pamela Jekel's The Third Jungle Book (1992) is a collection of new Mowgli stories in a fairly accurate pastiche of Kipling's style.

There have been several film, radio and television adaptations of The Jungle Book, nearly always concentrating on Mowgli's adventures, but almost invariably changing the story until Kipling might not have recognised the result. This is especially true of the Disney cartoon version, made in 1967, which uses the names and basic appearances of Kipling's characters but changes almost everything else.

In most of the film and television adaptations the Mow of Mowgli is pronounced to rhyme with go, although according to Kipling it should rhyme with cow. Modern adaptations always depict Mowgli wearing a loincloth or similar garment. In the original stories he is always naked except while living with humans.

A Doemain of Our Own

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 won the 2006 Ursa Major Award for Best Anthropomorphic Other Literary Work. (comic - more...)
