Overrated furry comics and why they suck

I feel a bit left out here, in the fact that I actually liked Concession, except for the fact that it just...ended without much wrapping up of the character's stories.

What I think happened:

START
Immy: I think I'll make a comic soup. With dark humor and dry wit and furries. Something like that, yeah.

But soon...
Immy: Fuck I am BORED and this soup is bland. I think I'll give the characters some backstories. Hey, let's make this guy a psychic assassin and shit. Yeah. Oh and gotta add controversial subject matter... pedophilia, drug use, murder, suicide, religion. Yeah, let's throw it in and stir this mess up.

Then...
Immy: AHAHAHAHA OMG THIS IS CRAZY I JUST KEEP THROWING MORE CRAZY SHIT IN AND STIRRING THE POT AND ALL OF THIS COMES BOILING OUT I AM SO GOOD I AM A MASTERFUL COMIC-SOUP-MAKERER GIMME THAT BEAR-WITH-SCREWED-UP-LEGS-AWARD BITCHES YEAH

And then...
Immy: Fuck's sake, look at this mess! What was I trying to cook? Fuck it, I'll just wipe it up and dump whatever's left of this mess into a bowl for the dogs. I mean readers. Yeah.

In keeping with my recent soup related rants, all Immy needed was 25% more salt in that comic soup to replace the stuff that Campbell's took out.

But seriously that comic got really messed up by the end. Which is a shame, because it wasn't tooooo bad a comic to start with.

There are English translations abounds, both from the fans and from the publisher. Definitely worth a read.


It's not a webcomic ;) Blacksad is a published comic.

My dad bought that comic in english is amazing I have to say. Like how the hitler group is animals all against non white furred furs. oh and they have kkk costumes too.

Its like real history and the animals actually do hate each other and dislike certain groups and such and its not one big happy family. That and I love the art work

This is a thread about pissing and moaning about sucky comics, not praising ones you like. Be relevant to the topic, please.

Original Life.

Overrated because: Jeez, even one person liking it would mean it's overrated. Sucks because: That's why.

i agree that it got really weird at the end... the beginning was really funny but once the comic actually started to have a plot it started to suck...
well, the first plot about matt and joel was actually kinda cute (minus all the apparently mandatory buttsex of course...) but once it got into the whole thing about joel's weird machine thingy or what ever it was it got REALLY weird! and the ending was a joke in my opinion.

it really is overrated.

i also dont get why he decided to change the style of the comic all the time. i can see that artists improve over time and the style evolves but the changes in this case are so radically different my ass got whiplash!

Typical Furry comic that easily becomes overrated, I was even shown one with a plot so horrid it was begging to be mocked.

The only decent (and note, non-furry) porn comic I've come across is Oglaf, because it doesn't take itself too seriously, and actually has plot and character development. (Of course, the link is NSFW, duh.)

I'm currently reading about Concession, which sounds like the funniest damn thing ever. Unintentionally.

Gene Catlow is a comic which appears decent enough on the surface, but is really droll, cliched, and tiresome, once you get into it. It's merely "competent."

I'm another person who really enjoyed Ozy and Millie back in the day. The characters were extremely likable, the dialogue was fun and quirky, the jokes were solid, and it did indeed remind me of Calvin and Hobbes. And the political sermonizing wasn't nearly as bad as in Raine Dog and I Drew This, Simpson's two other main comics.

To the person with the Pinkie Pie avatar who mentioned (positively) Lackadaisy--Thanks! This comic looks awesome! I'm reading it now.

I'm absolutely addicted to Endtown, and will go to the ends of the earth to defend everything and anything by Ursula Vernon, especially Digger.

You guys are scaring me. I've had this story I'm writing in my head for about a decade and I'm finally illustrating it and It's most likely going to be a webcomic. But the way you all are talking about all these webcomics makes me wonder if I should wait another few years until my art improves (I'm not the best artist) or if my storytelling and character development is pristine.

I think this one was already posted here maybe but I have to say Housepets. I used to really like it when I first started reading it! The original stuff was funny, but the newer stuff now just isn't as funny to me.

(Also I may have really really hoped to see Fox and King as a couple but that's totally not the point!)

Fur-Piled was good. It has good artwork (Black and White except for the last few pages), and it had a good down-to-earth story that made sense and was easy to follow. The characters had fully developed backgrounds and they explained each one in depth at different chapters.

They're all stupid, poorly written, and overrated.
Ever read Lackadaisy? How about Dreamkeepers?
There are few good ones, but the majority does indeed suck

Oh, god. Lackadaisy. That one is fantastic.
But, it's not really a furry comic in the way that, well, this is a furry comic.
It's a well-done comic. The artist could have chosen to draw it with humans, but chose to use cats since she can draw so many more expressions.
Those who are reading it knows that she can draw humans alright.

Basically, it's just furry the same way that The Lion King is furry. Or Donald Duck.
It's not the artist going "I'm gonna make a comic with furries" or "I'm gonna make a comic where animal characteristics does a great deal to the story".
...Not completely sure how I should put it.

I wouldn't call it overrated, but The Penguin Capers is truly one of the most odd comics I've ever laid eyes on. It made my sister laugh her head off.
