''Extinctioners'' is a comic book created, written and drawn by Shawntae Howard that features a superhero theme, but uses anthropomorphic animals as its main characters. With an ongoing run beginning in July 1998, the series has been published by Vision Comics, Shanda Fantasy Arts, and Angry Viking Press.

The comics follow hybrids, humanoid animals possessing special powers which augment some species characteristic. The humanoid animals on the planet Alden, or humanimals, were genetic constructs created for the purpose of avoiding having animals become extinct on an overpopulated Earth. During a global war, the humans discovered a new fresh planet though a wormhole that would be habitable for mankind. Thinking the idea risky, they sent a seeding of humanimals with human trainers to the planet to terraform it and build cities and set up social organizations. However, they lose contact with their humanimal constructs, leaving them alone on the planet.
