I wouldn't consider Squirrel Girl "furry" simply because she has a tail, though that's just an OPINION.

The art though... for somebody who is slowly mastering the brush, that is a high goal to aim for.

Well, I'll be...

Your rating: None

I thing my usual comment is "vaguely furry" or "semi-furry" (and not because of the tail, but because of the ability to speak to squirrels which renders the squirrels furry supporting characters). Perhaps a more cynical way to put it is "furrier than most of the movies to win the Ursa Major this decade."

Also, that's Skottie Young; he's amazing. Just do a Google search.

Wait, I already know him!

Well, I'll be...

We got a suggestion for Autumlands, apparently out monthly.

That is actually interesting.

Well, I'll be...

Yes, very furry; I actually didn't see it this month. Either they're taking May off, or I just missed it, even though I actually looked for it, and since it's an Image book, and Image is the only freaking company that uses alphabetical order, I should have found it.
