The Klysadel is back!

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

Those who were around when Furry fandom was starting up from the late 1970s to the early 1990s will remember Fara Shimbo and her Klysadel stories, told in over a dozen fanzine text stories and comic strips, about Wargentin College on the Moon several thousand years in the future, and its bizarre faculty and students mixing humans, talking animals, and Furry aliens, notably the satamuri (roughly a cross between cats and baboons). Shimbo also entered paintings of her characters in the Art Shows of the first couple of Furry conventions. Then she dropped out of fandom.

She has just returned with her own website, where everything is being posted including a 70+ page color comic book. For those of you who want to catch up with the adventures of Thobo the Hat, Fara Maki, Dark Jon and the others, go to http://klysadel.net/

I dropped by once and a spent a couple of minutes talking to her mom...Yay!! This series is probably what was my very first exposure to furry, about 17 or so...In 1978!
