Furry Comic
Laura: I will never get tired of seeing a hippoman shooting guns.
David: SET IS USING MP5s LIKE COLT 45s
Laura Hudson and David Wolfkin, "The Complete and Utter Insanity of 'Batman: Odyssey'"

Basically, a comic populated by Funny Animals (some higher-quality comics may actually be full-on Petting Zoo People), with varying levels from the simple Talking Animal level to the full anthropomorphization (sometimes abbreviated 'anthro' in the wide circle of Furry Fandom), with characters that look like cuter versions of escapees from the island of Dr. Moreau.

More commonly than not, Furry Comics have mammalian stars, probably because it is easier to anthropomorphize something that's morphologically closer to humans, although high primates like gorillas and chimpanzees are often too close with Unfortunate Implications in racial themes. Still, many of this kind of comics rely on animal behaviour humour as an easy source of jokes.

Although Funny Animals are an easy source of humour (Funny Animals, anyone?) and cuteness, it's an easy target for Rule 34 (if not a consequence of it), to the point that fans and authors of innocent Furry Comics might get really offended about the sole mention of it.

See also Furry Webcomics for its Internet equivalent.

Common associated tropes


Examples

Note: Many of the following links are to external sites. You may want to open them in another tab or window.
  • Albedo Erma Felna EDF
  • Apocalypse Meow aka Cat Shit One: Covers The Vietnam War in all its horror but replaces the various sides with Talking Animals, the species apparently being selected based on common stereotypes. Cat Shit One is a special ops unit of American GI rabbits who have to carry out various strategic objectives in the steaming jungles of 'nam. An Animated Adaptation is being planned with the setting updated so that it takes place in the Gulf War.
  • Associated Student Bodies: Similar in format to Circles below, ASB deals with a young college lion inadvertently shacked up in the campus' gay-oriented dorm room, and his issues with dealing with all of the crazy characters he finds there as well as the conflict between his strict religious upbringing (and those of his family) and his budding homosexuality. A bit more sex than Circles, but it's still considered one of the best comics in the fandom to deal with real issues with the gay community.
  • The Astounding Wolf Man: A 25 issue series by Image comics written by Robert Kirkman. Adventures of a werewolf superhero.
  • The Blackblood Alliance: A pack of dire wolves must fend off a pride of saber-toothed cats.
  • Blacksad: A French-Spanish comic book about an American cat named John Blacksad who is a private investigator in the 1950s.
  • CHEVALIER (hosted here) : A furry fantasy adventure about a heroics mouse who fancies himself a "mouseketeer" trying to save a kidnapped princess, stop a war between two kingdoms, and claim his destiny.
  • Circles: An ongoing gay-themed slice-of-life comic book. Word of God has said that it is a case of Purely Aesthetic Species. Oddly notable for the ads for porn in the back cover, a former pornographer as the main artist, being distributed by a company known for porn, but thankfully not actually being porn. There is plenty of fanservice, however.
  • Cruelty: A comic by Rukis about a wolfdog and his fennec best friend.
  • Dracula is a straight adaptation of, well, Dracula. The furry aspects are only in the artwork, while the plot follows the original rather faithfully— which sometimes causes interesting questions like why a coyote would need to shave.
  • Eternity Street: Dinosaur Comics with foxes who are engaged in a domestic relationship!!
  • Evon: A comic about a young and developing sorceress named Evon. Living in a world that is a combination of Ancient Roman and Medieval society, Evon travels the world with her friend, Herodotus, fighting all odds to escape from the people that mean her harm and to uncover her past (more exactly, she pays him for protect her from a powerful mage).
  • Exterminatus Now: Sonic-like characters working for the equivalent of the Warhammer 40,000 Inquisition. And yes, they use the line.
  • Extinctioners: Another superhero-based anthropomorphic comic, this one taking a more serious approach than Supermegatopia below. There are several portfolios that the creator has pumped out, including many "Women of Extinctioners" pinups, three tutorials demonstrating how he draws the species in his comics, and— most recently— modifying existing superhero action figures to create toys of his characters.
  • Felicia Sorceress of Katara
  • Fritz the Cat: The origins of funny animal fandom derive from this and earlier comics by Robert Crumb.
  • Fuzzy Things: A comic about the adventures of eight kids on a planet both mundane and futuristic. It started life as an action comedy with occasional bouts of seriousness before pressing the Reset Button and becoming what it is now.
  • Geronimo Stilton: Now has graphic novels.
  • Grandville: A badger detective and his mouse partner solve crime in a steampunk era.
  • The Great Catsby
  • Guardians: is a comic about wild cats gifted with elemental powers, using them to defend the world and overthrow the resident Evil Overlord. A perfect example of Panthera Awesome and Scenery Porn, but sadly, is not updated often.
  • Havoc Inc
  • Heathen City
  • ISO: A gay-themed furry comedy comic book series by Vince Suzukawa. I.S.O. takes place at the fictional DeMontfort University in California, and much of the story is set in Richter Hall, a fictional three-story dormitory building.
  • Morefuyu is a Doujinshi of Morenatsu.
  • Omaha the Cat Dancer
  • Outrim, a hard science fiction comic about genetically uplifted rodents operating a scruffy space freighter.
  • Outside Interference: A newspaper-strip style in a Slice of Life style, without much of an overarching plot. Found here.
  • Poppy O'Possum: An opossum with Super Strength tries to make a decent, quiet life her her and her daughter in a World of Funny Animals where opossums are victims of Fantastic Racism.
  • The Pride Of Life: A webcomic about a dog-like teenager named Kedamono, who, after eating a legendary fruit, transforms into a 'superbeast' and gains super powers. He quickly finds out that this isn't necessarily a good thing. Largely a comedy with fantasy elements.
  • R. H. Junior comics: An assortment of comics by one of the most notable conservative Christian furries.
    • Goblin Hollow: A comic set in the title arcade.
    • Tales of the Questor: A sword and sorcery strip, with a strong element of C.S. Lewis' Christian allegory style ala Narnia, about a young raccoon boy who lives his dream to be a Questor, a professional adventurer.
  • Rocky: A Swedish autobiographical underground comic by Martin Kellerman.
