Webcomic / Turner Academy
is a Furry Webcomic found on the author's Deviant Art account.
It is a slice of life comedy focusing on a group of teenage canine Petting Zoo People
, who attend school at Turner Academy for the Visual and Performing Arts,
an international boarding school focusing on the arts. The webcomic mainly focuses on the drama club members: Alex Lovatt, Chloe Cygnet, Beau Remington, CB Mc Cartney, Kit-Milo and Geneva Klinemann, Ginger Foxx, and Dani Grenier.
Turner Academy contains examples of:
- Boarding School: The title school is one of these
- Camp Straight Alex
- Drama Club: the main characters
- Ears as Hair: All the girl characters with floppy ears (out of the main characters, Geneva and Chloe)
- Everything's Better with Penguins the school mascot
- Famous-Named Foreigner: CB McCartney
- Foreign Exchange Student: Justified, as the school is an international boarding school. Out of the main characters, the ones that fit this category are CB (England), Kit and Geneva (Germany), and Dani (Canada)
- Friend to All Living Things Ginger and CB
- Furry Female Mane Ginger, Dani, Kit Milo, and CB all have full human-like hair and Geneva and Chloe have Ears as Hair with human-like bangs, while and Beau and Alex just have tufts of fur between their ears that look like hair.
- Hime Cut: Chloe.
- Limited Wardrobe: Subversion. Excluding the occasional costume, each character has no more than four outfits: a signature school uniform combination, and two outfits worn off-campus (spring/summer and winter/fall), plus some kind of shirt and shorts combination for in theatre class, usually overlapping with their off-campus outfits.
- Multi National Team The main cast of characters is sort of a downplayed version. Half of the main characters (Alex, Chloe, Beau, and Ginger) are American (but from different parts of the US), a quarter (Kit and Geneva) are German, and the other two, CB and Dani, are English and Canadian, respectively.
- New Transfer Student: Ginger, though her origins are never really specified more than Deep South, and Dani, from Canada, are the newest editions to the drama club.
- Non-Uniform Uniform: The school's dress code allows many variations, with most of the main characters having a signature combination.
- Official Couple Beau/CB
- Species Surname: Both played straight and subverted. Ginger Cohen-Foxx is a fox, but Chloe Cygnet is an Afghan Hound.
- World of Funny Animals: All the characters are canines, and the majority are domestic dog breeds.
- Zettai Ryouiki: The school uniform allows girls to wear skirts and knee-socks together.
- Also, Ginger has markings on her legs that naturally give her this look whenever she wears a skirt or dress.
