'Omaha the Cat Dancer' reviewed by The Onion's A.V. Club

Your rating: None Average: 4 (4 votes)

The Onion's A.V. Club has published a retrospective review of Omaha the Cat Dancer, recently re-released as a recompiled set. [Tmachine]

While Noel Murray notes the sex scenes on the NBM covers "border on the gratuitous", he praised the comic for rising above its steamy origins:

Omaha, on the other hand, became less about the sex and more about story over time—even after the book migrated to Eros. [During] the series’ heyday, Omaha sensitively explored devotion and jealousy and hypocrisy, via the ever-shifting relationships of the main characters. It was no masterpiece, but it was entertaining and more fun to read that about 95 percent of what was on the shelves at the time.

HILARIOUS parody with anthro flavor

No votes yet

theonion.com, a popular news parody site, has posted a very funny story about "sexism among animals in nature." There is heavy anthropomorphication (if that's a word) of natural animal behavior on the part of some "scientists" conducting thier "research."

Not strictly furry, but VERY funny and apropos for those interested in behavioral aspects of anthropomorphics.

Despite the seriousness of the topic of protecting what little Florida wetland remains, I had to get several chuckles out of this spoof in The Onion:

Endangered Manatee Struggles to Make Self Understood to Congress

Note from Gene: I'm one of those people who normally find the Onion just a little too sophomoric to actually be funny, but I got a chuckle from this one, as well.
