Softpaw publishers close after five year run
Dream Field Comics, creators of Softpaw Magazine, spin-off Finding Avalon, and Ulster, have closed. The publisher was notorious for their popular pornographic magazines depicting young furry characters.
Softpaw's US$20-$25 issues consisted of 64-96 full-colour glossy pages containing a mixture of comics, pin-ups and stories.
At press time, most Dream Field titles were in stock at Rabbit Valley.
Update (19 Jun): Dream Field co-founder Jery Softpaw provided an explanation for closing:
A few people have asked for more details about Softpaw/Dream Field closing, and perhaps the public announcement didn't explain things fully. I don't have the time or money to keep doing it. It's pretty much that simple! I'm just one person helping artists where I can. But my situation has changed and I can't devote those resources to Dream Field or Softpaw any more.
For 5 years we all worked hard to produce that huge series. Just like any serial magazine, there was no "finish" planned. If we published another dozen it'd still end at some point in the same way. But the good news is none of the stories need to end there.
It's up to the artists to get them published on their own now. None of them rely on me to publish! Some are working on continuing their stories, to release in hardcopy or digital. Inkbunny.net is the best way I can continue to help all furry artists publish and sell, and it doesn't take the same personal financial resources that our comics did.
Thanks everyone for your support. We never expected so much acceptance, popularity and help. I hope you continue to show the same support to your favorite artists and encourage them to create comics and publish their work!
