''Safe Havens'' is a fantasy comic strip by Bill Holbrook, launched in 1988 and initially set in a daycare center. In 1993 the preschool children began aging in real time, and the strip has followed them as they've moved through K-12, college and now young adulthood. The main character is Samantha Argus, a personable and enthusiastic young woman with the skills of a MadScientist who has unlocked the secrets of genetic manipulation.

* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Several characters can speak with animals, but only so long as they mentally retain some aspect of their childhood; those who "grow up" lose the ability and eventually forget they ever had it.

* ArchivePanic: As noted, the strip's been going on since 1988. The online archive ''only'' goes back to 1999, so that's still almost 20 years available online.

** Often caused continuity problems thanks to King Features' colorists, who did not remain consistent with crossover characters, e.g. Patina being a redhead in ''Fastrack'' but having brown hair in ''Havens''.
** As the more unusual elements of ''Fastrack'' have faded away (while going UpToEleven in ''Havens''), the number of crossovers have dwindled. With the bulk of the ''Havens'' cast set to spend three years in space, this trend seems set to continue.
