Basically, a comic populated by anthropomorphic and zoomorphic characters, ranging from Talking Animals to Funny Animals (see Furry Lens) to Beast Men (common in science fiction and fantasy, you get a bunch of humanoids that look like animals), 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.
Disclaimer: Despite the name, Furry Comics don't necessarily have to be remotely involved with the Furry Fandom (Popularity, withstanding). These are just comics that star anthropomorphic animals. The same goes for Furry Webcomics.

- 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 Autumnlands: Tooth & Claw: A sprawling fantasy epic.

- Circles: A 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. Finished in 2015.
- Cruelty: A comic by Rukis about a wolfdog and his fennec best friend.
- Dog House: A short, somewhat erotic story about the romance between a human girl and her "pet", an anthropomorphic dog, from the same creator of Albedo: Erma Felna EDF.<!—/index—>
- 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.<!—index—>
- The various comics of The Dynamite Twins and Friends, including:
- Extinctioners: Another superhero-based anthropomorphic comic, this one taking a more serious approach than Supermegatopia below. There are several portfolios that creator Shawntae Howard has pumped out, including many "Women of Extinctioners" pinups, three tutorials demonstrating how he draws the species in his comics, and modifying existing superhero action figures to create toys of his characters.
- Fritz the Cat: The origins of funny animal fandom derive from this and earlier comics by Robert Crumb.

- Spooo Presents: An erotic anthology mostly based around gay stories. The two biggest ongoing comics featured in the title are "Coyote River", an Affectionate Parody of sorts to Brokeback Mountain (though it still deals with the same serious issues that the movie did), and "Rocketship Rodents", an Affectionate Parody of Buck Rogers with its own spin-off, a parody of (of all things) Doctor Who. The Author's notes indicate that the similarity between Coyote River and Brokeback Mountain is pure coincidence, as he wasn't aware of it until people compared the first issue to the movie. Also, he seems not to have seen the movie until some time after the release of the second issue.<!—index—>
- Super Dinosaur: More of a 'Scaly Comic' really. Stars SD, an intelligent T-Rex who wears a robotic battle harness. Aimed at kids, but readers of older ages like it too.
- Tank Vixens is an Affectionate Parody of both the "furry porn" and "military furries" subgenres. The titular heroines are lesbians who ride around in tanks, the villain is a female mouse who weaponizes her "posing power" and leads a Red Shirt Army, and they all wear Stripperiffic outfits.
