Upcoming furry comics for April 2008 (Previews only)
Everything this month is more of what came before except an interesting hardcover from Dark Horse. I didn't notice anything particularly furry in the Free Comics Day stuff, so go out and buy!

Helen Killer #1 (of 4)
by Andrew Kreisberg & Matthew JLD Rice
'In 1901, twenty-one year old college student Helen Keller, with the aid of a fantastical device invented by her friend and mentor, Alexander Graham Bell, regains her sight and hearing as well as near super-human strength and agility. Helen is enlisted by the Secret Service to protect President William McKinley who has been targeted for assassination by Anarchists. As a deeper conspiracy to destroy America unfolds around her, Helen discovers that her new abilities come with a dark and terrifying price!' This isn't furry and I'm certainly not recommending it but I wanted to quote the premise, which I think outweirds 'Battle Pope'.
