Life on pulp, part 1...

Borrowing a bit of style from Slashdot...

Bahumat writes: "In my exploration of furry artworks, particularly serialized comics, both online and on paper, I find that there are a few comics out there who's writers and artists combine so well, that not only is the comic an enjoyable read, but the characters seem -real-, as opposed to merely archtype characters. Few titles and series seem to grab my attention and interest as well as these rare few that make me forget the characters on paper are merely that; characters. To me, in some cases, they seem like living, breathing extensions of a slightly surrealistic mirror of the world in which we live."

"The two titles that immediately spring to mind? Shanda the Panda, and Sabrina Online."

Anyone out there care to contribute their chosen titles, and experiences?

Confurance Group and ZonieCon

No votes yet

Darrell Exline posted the following on alt.fan.furry: "Well, we're still working out the logistical details, but The ConFurence Group can now say that we have THREE (yes, *three*!) furry conventions to brag about.

Adding to our existing "ConFurence" each April (Southern California) and
"CritterConDiego" in July (San Diego), The ConFurence Group is proud to announce that it is now also an organizational part of "ZonieCon" (Tucson, Arizona) in October.

This is something I've been discussing with some of the staff members of
ZonieCon since last October's convention (ZonieCon 3) and I believe that it is a good fit within the goal of The ConFurence Group. Our exact position within ZonieCon's staff is still being nailed down, but is likely to be limited to handling pre-registration, structuring the business model, and helping to organize the convention running process.

The ConFurence Group's mission statement has always been "To promote
anthropomorphic fandom related events" and helping to host ZoniCon certainly fits the bill.

'B' movies

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)

I like the old 'B' science fiction movies, the sort that used to be considered drive-in movies in the late 50s/early 60s. These are hard to find anymore, either on tape or on television. I've recently found two good sources for them, however:


"Tapes of Terror"
