Upcoming furry comics for January 2011 (Previews only)
I let a Thanksgiving vacation mess up my posting so badly that this is about a month too late to be useful for preordering. However, for historical purposes, here it is. At the very least, this is the month of the first Finder supercollection. Attention must be paid.
DARK HORSE COMICS (http://www.darkhorse.com)
NOV10 0042 The Finder Library vol. 1 sc, 616 pg, b&w, 6"x9" $24.99
by Carla Speed McNeil
I can only repeat what I said in October: 'This is the best SF comic ever (what CSM calls 'anthropology of the future') and you should ... buy the two-volume collection of all the backstory, originally in six self-published trade paperbacks, as soon as it comes out.' Well, here's half of it. SIX HUNDRED AND SIXTEEN PAGES of the best, for four cents a page! This is the best deal of the year. And it includes the King of the Cats arc, the most anthropomorphic-laden of them all. Even more highestlier recommended than last month's Vision. Buy buy read read.
DC COMICS (http://www.dccomics.com/)
NOV100251 Looney Tunes #194 32pg, color $2.99
NOV100252 Scooby-Doo, Where Are You? #5 32pg, color $2.99
The descriptions of these in the catalog I have are the same as those for last month. What is the truth? Only our alien space bat masters know.
PAGES 177, 189

The Pirate Cats decide to better their odds by getting rid of Professor Volt, kidnapping him and leaving him in the Cretaceous Period, a time when the earth was occupied by dinosaurs!'

Furry porn by ReDaDillio, Shon Howell, Brian Sutton, Poinko, DAQ, and others.
