* FurryComic: Sort of. Some of the characters are human/bovine or human/goat hybrids. The author handwaves this as "metahumanity" and has at times argued that if characters such as Grij and Shannon are "furries," then Spock is a rabbit and Worf is a lobster.

Among The Chosen (ATC) is a planned seven book graphic novel cycle written, modeled, rendered, pencilled, inked, shaded and lettered by Daniel H. ATC is - superficially - the story of the seven magicians who, at some point in the distant past, all but destroyed the human race. At least that is what the about page indicates. So far the story has detailed a small skirmish in the larger cold war between the MegaCorp Heirotus and its paramilitary nemesis, the Templar. That's ATC "proper" - the color pages, The Dualist and Transitional Voices. Dead City Radio, the black and white bits, seem to be about a disaffected, [[MindScrew sometimes delusional]], college student attending an unnamed art school in 1997.

Among The Chosen Chosen]] (ATC) is a planned seven book graphic novel cycle written, modeled, rendered, pencilled, penciled, inked, shaded and lettered by Daniel H.

The comic is very cryptic, often assuming the ViewersAreGeniuses because [[AllThereInTheManual it's all in the liner notes]]. The military jargon, complex backstory and work in progress nature of the piece make understanding ATC akin to [[JigsawPuzzlePlot assembling a puzzle]], but thats half the fun. The art work is very polished and the integration of 2D and 3D assets is well done.


If you want to get into ATC you'll probably want to read [[http://amongthechosen.com/comic/observer-effect--1-.php the prequel]] before starting on the current story, Transitional Voices. [[http://amongthechosen.com/comic/dead-city-radio.php Dead City Radio (book 1) starts here,]] and takes place five years before the events of the color comics. The Second Edition of [[http://amongthechosen.com/comic/the-dualist.php The Dualist (book 2) starts here.]] [[http://amongthechosen.com/comic/transitional-voices.php Transitional Voices (book 3, and the current book in the series) starts here.]] Cast and cosmology can be found [[http://amongthechosen.com/universe/ here]].

Updates are more [[ScheduleSlip irregular]] than anything this side of Webcomic/DresdenCodak. Of course, this is because the author never tried to keep a schedule until May of 2013, and has acknowledged that the effort required for the creation of CG assets means that the odds of a regular update schedule are unlikely at best. When he does update, he may post one to several dozen pages. In addition, the author has a habit of going back and revising his work. The Dualist, for instance. has been through two major revisions. The authors reasons for this are many and varied.

Three of the books, Dead City Radio (DCR), The Dualist (TD2E, where 2E is 'second edition'), and Transitional Voices (TV), are in various stages of completion, meaning that the story is very fragmented at the moment.
