ACTIVE IMAGES JUL031908F page 238
Hip Flask: Unnatural Selection Widescreen Limited Edition Hardcover -
color, 48pg hc - $29.95
by Starkings, Casey, & Ladronn
I didn't think the original was anywhere near great enough to deserve this pricey special painted-art edition, 'collecting the re-mastered and expanded "widescreen" art and story from Unnatural Selection and also
pages and covers from Hip Flask: Elephantmen'. YMMV.
PAGE 241 AMAZE INK (SLAVE LABOR) JUL031929E
by Jamie Smart
More of the suffering teddy bear.
PAGE 244 ANGRY NAKED COMICS JUL031963E
Crackurz 48-page Super Special #1 - 48pg - $3.95
by D.J. Coffman & James Patrick
'Remster and Loagster are two birds stuck in a cage, and, like most odd couples, they hate each other, but not in the secretly loving-and-respecting-each-other sort of way.' I had a look at http://crackurz.s5.com/crk.htm and decided to try it.
PAGE 256 ARCHIE COMIC PUBLICATIONS JUL032004E
Sonic the Hedgehog #128 - color, 32pg - $2.19
by Benny Lee, Dawn Best, & Jim Amash
'"Starmada": Sonic hooks up with a fleet of alien mercenary starships, banded together to find and destroy a space being of incredible power that has left a trail of galactic devastation in its wake! It turns out
to be a nemesis from Sonic's past, namely E.V.E.! "E.V.E.-Ill": Originally Robotnik's creation, E.V.E. was set free by Sonic way back in issue #22. Now Sonic finds out what she has been doing with that freedom... destroying whole planets. Sonic feels responsible and sets out to find her first. Can he put an end to this "eve of destruction?"'
If Sonic is responsible for the deaths of billions I think it only just if he perishes (nobly) in the attempt.
PAGE 264 BETTER COMICS JUL032051F
Complex City Volume 1: All in a Day's Work tp Signed Edition - 120pg -
by J.E. Smith
'This first trade paperback collects issues #1, #2, and #4, along with 22 all-new pages.' Why not #3? This is the story featuring an
anthro-canine cop but no other furries I know of.

Gutwallow: Fury of the Furry tp - 112pg - $12.95

Tokyo Mew Mew v. 4 (of 10) - 5x7, 192pg - $9.99

'Ichigo knew she had cat DNA, but she never dreamed she'd transform into an actual cat!' Started as a furry superhero team fighting off an alien invasion, looks like it's turning to romance.
