Upcoming furry comics for October 2015

Your rating: None Average: 2.5 (2 votes)

Marvel has been rebooting everything, again, which means a bunch of new characters have moved up to official Avengers status, including Deadpool (the big news for comics nerds), Songbird (a personal favorite of mine) and, oh, yeah, on the actually furry side, Squirrel Girl. But that's just me geeking out, so onward to solicits.
