DARK HORSE COMICS (http://www.darkhorse.com)
OCT100041 Finder: Voice sc, 208pg, b&w, 6"x9": $19.99
by Carla Speed McNeil
Marginally furry; an earlier story arc revolves around a tribe of lionmorphs working at a warped version of Disneyworld, and other morphs are in other stories less prominently. However and regardless, this is the best SF comic ever (what CSM calls 'anthropology of the future') and you should read this and then buy the two-volume collection of all the backstory, originally in six self-published trade paperbacks, as soon as it comes out. Highestly recommended. Or highliest if you prefer.

edited by Matt Dembicki
'All cultures have tales of the trickster--a crafty creature or being who uses cunning to get food, steal precious possessions, or simply cause mischief. In Native American traditions, the trickster takes many forms, from coyote or rabbit to raccoon or raven. The first graphic anthology of Native American trickster tales, Trickster brings together Native American folklore and the world of comics. More than twenty tales are cleverly adapted into comic form, each written by a different Native American storyteller who worked closely with a selected illustrator.'

And find out the dreadfully comedic and tearfully sentimental events that took place before Taisho [the cat protagonist] said good-bye to his food cart days. And what will dog-hating Taisho do when Mariko drops off a cute puppy at the shop?!'
