Aww, Feathers! logo

Fur, scales, fins, or feathers, everyone has a story!

Recommendations

Here are some of the webcomics (in alphabetical order) that I enjoy and recommend to others. Each has a brief description, as well as an informal rating; I'm not a ratings board of course, but I do offer my opinion for which ones are family-friendly and which ones are better suited for an older audience.
I'm still working on this list. (I follow a LOT of comics!) But if you know of any other comics you think belong on this list, especially those that are furry-related, clean, and with a decent archive, let me know!

Awkward Zombie

Link: awkwardzombie.com

Categories: comedy, gaming

Description: A collection of comics in which the artist, Katie, inserts herself into the games she's currently playing, usually to make humorous observations on the game's story or mechanics. The art style is fun and stylized, and occasionally even animated!

Rating: PG - mild language, occasional blood

Cloudscratcher

Link: cloudscratcher.com

Categories: adventure, comedy, furry

Description: A ragtag group aboard a sky-ship faces off against foes from the Serpent Kingdom, some of which are bumbling and humorous, but others are deadly serious. The art style is reminiscent of 90's cartoons and the story often feels like it too. Every once in a while though, it reminds you that the stakes and danger are very real, but it quickly returns to its light-hearted tone.

Rating: PG - mild language, violence

Curtailed

Link: curtailedcomic.com/

Categories: autobio, comedy, furry, gaming

Description: A collection of comics based on the life of a young furry couple. Lots of gaming references. Often sarcastic, and occasionally mean-spirited, but mostly fun and with a nice hand-drawn style.

Rating: PG - language, suggestive themes

Doc Rat

Link: docrat.com.au/

Categories: animals, comedy, drama, furry

Description: A rat practicing medicine and living in Australia. The story takes place in a society of animals that are intelligent and civilized, but that still prey on each other. The strip contains a mix of animal and medical related jokes and visual gags, as well as the more serious story of those who are trying to put an end to the practice of predation. A handful of comics featuring furry or animal characters address the question of what the meat-eating species do when they need to eat; Doc Rat is my favorite treatment of that question.

Rating: PG - violence

Drive

Link: drivecomic.com

Categories: comedy, sci-fi, space opera

Description: "The story is serious, the characters are hilarious" (Jeff Kapalka). Drive takes place in a future in which humans steal faster than light travel and begin colonizing the galaxy. Unfortunately, the original creators of the tech want it back. Featuring a varied collection of extraterrestrial races, each with distinctive look, culture, and abilities.

Rating: PG - mild language, violence, one instance of rear nudity

Categories: animals, comedy, nature

Description: Duff the bear and his loyal friend Carl the snake befriend a family of humans who operate a bed and breakfast. Full of puns and slapstick humor and with a loose, colorful art style. The jokes are sometimes a bit lowbrow, but enjoyable enough to stick with it.

Rating: G

Furry Experience

Link: furryexperience.com/

Categories: comedy, drama, furry, LDS

Description: Furry characters attending school in Utah Valley. It should come as no surprise that this is the webcomic that inspired me to create Aww, Feathers! Lots of humor, a touch of drama, and plenty of commentary and good-natured satire on Utah Latter-day Saint culture.

Rating: PG - mild suggestive themes

Galactic Dragons

Link: galacticdragons.com/

Categories: adventure, comedy, dragons, sci-fi

Description: A crew of dragons on board a space ship is on a mission to rescue a stranded colony. But there's plenty of mischief and hijinks along the way! An excellent example of story-telling done in the condensed format of a four-panel strip.

Rating: PG - mild language, mild suggestive themes

Gratz

Link: gratz.thecomicseries.com

Categories: adventure, comedy, fantasy, furry, gaming, LDS

Description: The world and characters are based on the World of Warcraft universe, but it's not required to be familiar with it in order to understand and enjoy the story. Featuring fun characters battling dark forces while also forging relationships. Several chapters also feature themes and symbolism that will resonate with those of a religious, and especially an LDS background. In the first several chapters, the artwork is very rough. But the artist steadily improves as he goes. (Compare the first page with the most recent, and you'll see exactly what I mean!)

Rating: PG 13 - violence, blood, occasional suggestive themes

KatRaccoon Comics

Link: katswenski.com

Categories: animals, comedy, gifs

Description: A collection of comics that add hilarious context to well-known or trendy gifs, particularly those featuring funny and/or adorable animal antics! Occasionally political, though rarely, and with a humorous spin.

Rating: PG - some language, occasional suggestive themes

Kevin & Kell

Link: kevinandkell.com

Categories: animals, comedy, furry, politics

Description: The world's longest running daily webcomic! Takes place in a world where animals are intelligent and have formed civil society, but sometimes give in to their more primal urges. Frequently uses animal traits as a metaphor for current political and social issues, though there are also plenty of strips that aren't political. There's a fair amount of implied death, as the characters sometimes hunt one another, and it's sometimes off-putting how casually they do so for what is otherwise a light-hearted comic.

Rating: PG - violence

Lackadaisy Cats

Link: lackadaisycats.com

Categories: comedy, drama, furry, horror

Description: Takes place during Prohibition era United States and featuring an entirely feline cast. Rival moonshine operations battle for dominance, often resorting to violence or trickery, while also dealing with their own inner demons. The artwork is absolutely stunning and the characters are very expressive. Sadly, updates are few and far between. But whenever they do come out, it's always a visual treat. (There is also an animated version in the works, and the previews for it look excellent!)

Rating: PG 13 - alcohol consumption, occasional strong language, violence, blood, scary images

Litterbox

Categories: comedy, furry, parenting

Peter & Company

Link: peterandcompany.com/

Categories: comedy, drama, furry

Humorous and heart-warming. (Note, there is a "sequel series" to this comic called Peter & Whitney that features the same characters as adults. While I haven't read it myself, it's described by the author as containing adult situations and intended for an older audience. P&C however is family friendly.)

Rating: G - mild violence

Phoebe and Her Unicorn

Categories: comedy, fantasy

Description: A young girl befriends a vain unicorn, Marigold, who accompanies her to elementary school, spends time with her at home, and learns about these funny creatures called "humans", while remaining thoroughly convinced that it's much better to be a unicorn. But being a unicorn that's friends with Phoebe is even better!

Rating: G - bullying, occasional potty humor

Scurry

Link: scurrycomic.com/

Categories: animals, drama, post-apocalyptic

Twin Dragons and Gamer Dragons

Links: twindragonscomic.com, gamerdragons.com

Categories: comedy, furry, gaming, urban fantasy

Description: Kay and Kaya are two school-age dragon kids living in a world where humans and anthropomorphic animals called "hybrids" coexist. They navigate the typical challenges of school, friends, and family, while also dealing with the inherent differences that come with each hybrid species. The writing is sometimes a little lacking. But the characters are very fun and the art is excellent, making it still very enjoyable overall.

Gamer Dragons features the same characters, tone, and art style as Twin Dragons, but in various video game worlds. It updates less frequently and doesn't have to do with the main story from Twin Dragons, but it's a fun bonus whenever it does update.

Rating: G - bullying

Categories: Christian, comedy, drama, furry

Description: Furry characters figuring out life after college, including relationships, work, and volunteer work at the local church. While not exclusively a Christian comic, several of the stories feature Christian themes and retellings of biblical stories.
