Ozy and Millie
A Furry Fandom favorite moves further into the eye of the mainstream, thanks to AMP! Comics For Kids. Now they bring us the Ozy and Millie Graphic Novel Volume 1 — written and illustrated by Dana Simpson, of course. “From the creator of the enormously popular Phoebe and Her Unicorn series comes Ozy and Millie, a playful comic exploring the friendship between two foxes. Meet Ozy and Millie, two middle-grade students in Seattle who also happen to be foxes. This comic centers around these two best friends as they take on the everyday challenges all middle-graders face-bullies, tests, and the dread of going back to school after a surprise snow day. Ozy is a young male fox whose adoptive father happens to be a dragon and frequent presidential candidate. Ozy’s calm and thoughtful demeanor is constantly tested by Millie’s rambunctious and rebellious pursuits.” Find out more over at Previews. Available now from Andrews McMeel.
The strip is to be completed with a final storyline and print collection, possibly followed by other projects involving the characters.
Simpson cited ongoing personal development as the reason for the change, finding a lessening ability to "deliver good [strips] that are up to my standards".
Mwalimu writes: I was able to access all three of these strips just now, and haven't encountered any particular difficulty over the last few days for the two I follow regularly. Fans of another strip, Wyldfire, might be interested to know that it (and its parent website, MPrints) recently moved to a new address. It can now be found at http://home.attbi.com/~mprints/wfire.html.
