Ballerina Mafia is a furry webcomic by Immelmann. It is as gag-a-day comic with no stories or drama, in contrast to the author's first webcomic, Concession. It shares similarities to At the Heart of it All, as some strips feature Immelmann himself and deals with events of his real life (though purely humorously this time). It's initial premise was to avoid recurring characters, but the comic eventually evolved to have a main cast.

This comic re-introduces Shugwar, Immelmann's real-life friend and now room mate who first appeared as a Protoss Warrior in At the Heart of it All.[1] Various other real-life friends of Immelmann have since appeared in the comic.

On January 8th, 2012, the comic was put on indefinite hiatus, with Immelmann stating that "I need to focus on keeping up with commissions", and that "I haven't started my new comic, so I really, really, need to work on launching that". On Tuesday, March 27th, 2012, Ballerina Mafia was nominated for the 2011 Ursa Major Awards. Despite the hiatus, an April Fool's comic was made on April 1st, 2012.

On July 2nd, 2012, the comic returned with a weekly updates.
