Upcoming furry comics for May 2006 (Diamond Previews only)
Doodles wrote to alt.fan.furry on Sat, 4 Mar 2006:
Things start to heat up as the publishers try to get a selection of big
items ready for convention season. Equally important, May 6th is Free Comic
Book Day, and there's all kinds of fun freebies from Gladstone, Tokyopop,
Top Shelf and Fantagraphics that are likely to be of interest to this bunch.

At long last, Linda Medley's wonderful series is being collected in a single

started with that simple question: Just what _does_ happen to the average

Do yourself a favor and get this one.

by Joe Edkin, Tim Smith, & Al Milgrom
'Eggman ups the ante in his quest to pilfer the Thorndyke space shuttle
by unleashing a gigantic spider robot at the World's Fair! . . . It's
action and intrigue in the hit "Sonic X" animated series style!' Ah, so
there's a new animated series out, presumably ignoring the whole setting
of the old series. A bit more comprehensible now.
Incidentally, I recently got my March order, including Mouse Guard #1
from Archaia Studios. Nice-looking series with minimally
anthropomorphized (but bipedal and metalworking) mice. Worth a look.>>
But I was provoked, I tell you!
