Heavy violence meets heavy metal in Murder Falcon, a new full-color comic series from Image. “From Daniel Warren Johnson, the creator of the Eisner-nominated series Extremity, comes Murder Falcon! The world is under attack by monsters, and Jake’s life is falling apart: No band, no girl, no future… until he meets Murder Falcon. He was sent from The Heavy to destroy all evil, but he can’t do it without Jake shredding up a storm. Now, with every chord Jake plays on his guitar, the power of metal fuels Murder Falcon into all-out kung fu fury on those that seek to conquer Earth. It’s time to shred!” You heard it here — Loudly! Check out the preview video too.
After over a week, 700 visitors, and over 80 registered users, Flayrah.com is chugging along fairly well. We acquired a logo about mid-week, courtesy of Jen Hayden...thanks! Some of you have emailed me with niggling little code bugs, and I've noticed a few myself. Some of these I've been able to fix, many I haven't. The developer of the weblog code I'm using is promising a large bugfix release early next week; I'm hoping this will fix many of the problems, and I'll be rolling it out on Flayrah.com as soon as I can. Unti then, thanks for the support!
This was posted earlier, but it's worth noting again after Further Confusion...Padwolf Publishing has released World Tree, a new furry roleplaying game. The website is at www.world-tree-rpg.com, and you can also read Flayrah.com's interview with creators Bard Bloom and Vicki Borah-Bloom. Did anyone get a chance to play the demos at FC?
Please go to CFM's Website for futher ordering information.

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

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.

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:
Furry Spring Break is a new furry convention, taking place March 2-4, 2001 in Orlando,
Florida. Click below for a full update on how their convention is proceeding.

KGTV in San Diego is reporting a serious fire at the The Escondido Humane Society's animal shelter. 125 dead animals have been discovered, along with 85 survivors after a fire late Saturday night.

In 1998 a comic strip began known as Satin & Silk, based on a pair of female skunks stranded on Earth. This strip was then joined with other strips and was lost for a short time amidst them, put on the backburne. Satin and Silk has now resumed, and is being updated three times a week along with other strips starring the sister skunks on Cyantian.net
