Boom! Studios’ Kaboom! imprint have previously presented several graphic novels for Adventure Time with Finn and Jake, but now they present the very first full-length original graphic novel (OGN) from the popular TV series The Regular Show with everyone’s favorite dopey coon and bluejay, Rigby and Mordecai. And the timing is perfect: “The summer is turning into a roast-fest and Mordecai and Rigby are desperate to find a way to cool down. But when a mystery pool suddenly appears and offers a chance to beat the heat, it’s only a matter of time before these two best bros find themselves in totally water-logged trouble.” Written by Rachel Connor (Ed, Edd N Eddy) and illustrated in full color by Tessa Stone (Bravest Warriors), Regular Show Volume 1: Hydration is available now. Find out more at Boom’s web site.
In spite of the claim by hunt supporters that foxes would overrun the UK if the horse and hound fox hunt was banned, the aborted hunt season last year due to foot and mouth has not led to any rise in fox numbers, researchers say. In fact, if anything, the numbers dropped slightly. The Countryside Alliance disregards the fecal drop count as innacurate, claiming farmers have been telling them that there are more foxes. And the debate goes on...
Steven M. Wise, J.D., is the president of Center for the Expansion of Fundamental Rights, and teaches Animal Rights Law at Harvard, Vermont, and John Marshall Law Schools.

(But not dogs.)
I (Kelly 'STrRedWolf' Price) am starting up a hub of webcomics who are doing Sept 11 memorials that day. Further information follows as to where it is and how to contribute. The website domain has just been created.
Hello Everyone. My name is Brian "Axelroo" Chris Baker, head of this year's ConifurNW 2K2 Masquerade. The time is ticking down and we need a head count of those who will be participating in this years event. We got a two dressing rooms and a beautiful backstage to practice on way out of sight from public oncomers. You can be sure, this is going to be a good year for ConifurNW.
YIFFSTAR, a new story archive for yiffy stories only, has been launched. Submitted stories are being hosted, not linked to. We're still looking for folks who'd like to participate in maintaining the archive, as well as story contributions of course..
Everyone knows that meteors heat up in the Earth's atmosphere because of friction and that the moon only looks bigger at the horizon because the thick air acts like a lens... right?
If this and other cosmic myths are your "well known facts", maybe you need BadAstronomy.com

For those of you who follow world-wide internet policies, China's list of banned websites continue to grow, actively filtered out by what's colorfully coming to be called 'The Great Firewall of China'.
Out of curiosity, I began testing which websites are banned.
And the first one I entered to see reported inaccessible? Furnation.
Incredulous, I ran the test again, and a few more times. 1 successful attempt to reach it, out of 20. It leads to curious speculation; is it something as simply benign as a router misconfiguration? Perhaps a few servers along the way had conked out? Maybe Slashdot having linked the testing server has resulted in a sudden drop of reliability of the testing method?
Or maybe the mainland Chinese are afraid of teh cultural revolution that some ears and tails might unleash. (He typed firmly tongue-in-cheek.)
Longtime Yerf and Yiffnet Attic contributor G. Raymond "Angel Bear" Eddy, long overdue for a comic of his own on the World Wide Web, can now boast of the world debut of The Wild Angels on Ottercomics.
Inu-yasha, Rumiko Takahashi's latest animated series will appear this Saturday, (and perhaps later Saturdays) on Cartoon Networks "Adult Swim" programming block.
This series concerns a modern Tokyo girl, a dead ancient priestess, and a half-demon who has feelings for both (or are they one). The half-demon (Inu-yasha) has some dog-like traits in roughly the manner of the reoccuring Japanese cat-girl.
At least six shows are sheduled.
The complaint in the title comes up now and again, when we post a story to the site that isn't directly related to furry fandom. The FAQ only touches on the answer (okay, the FAQ is over a year and a half old, and needs to be rewritten), so I thought I would talk about Flayrah's 'mission statement'. Click below for more.
Richard Cooper owns a talking raven and wishes he could make him the star of a bird of prey show. But instead of saying cute things, like 'come back soon', Zeus, who spontaniously started picking up words at 6 months, keeps telling Richard to shut up, teases the dogs and torments visitors. Not so stupid.
If you are on the bubble deciding if you can afford to go to this year's ConiFur NorthWest, now is the perfect time to check out the current competitive pricing plans that the various airlines are offering. Upon getting reports of very low rates from some of our membership, I've been doing research online and found that round trip tickets are indeed dropping quite a bit. Most coast to coast round trip tickets are at $300 or less! Now you can fly for as low as $236 through American Airlines for example. Fares up and down the west coast average $180 or less. Many others are matching this fare or offering better deals.
Now is the time to shop for those great prices! And don't forget to make your reservations for your hotel room as well as they are going fast.
Just when I thought I couldn't be surprised anymore, here somene broght this to my attention:
I wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't checked it out myself. Islamic furry. Well, I guess the first American Islamic furry artist is now only a matter of time...
