Anthropomorphism gives a non-human being or thing human characteristics. Online this is often shortened to anthro. Today our genre dive looks at comics where the main characters are non-human.
Beyond the Western Deep by Alex Kain & Rachel Bennett
“The four kingdoms of Sunsgrove, Aisling, Navran, and Kishar have a tenuous peace between them – one that will be shattered when the dispossessed race of Ermehn try to retake Aisling, their old kingdom.”
StupidFox by Emily Y. Chan
“The driving force behind the StupidFox strips are it’s moments of childish and careless, moronic brilliance as well as his interactions with his companion friends, Raccoon, Bunny and Bird. Each of them contribute their own personalities and reactions that bring to question if StupidFox is really stupid as his name states, or if his actions are simply misunderstood.”
Tamberlane by Caytlin Vilbrandt
“The animal citizens of Treehollow have discovered a small, strange creature wandering alone in the forest: a human child! And they have no idea what it is. Clearly much too young to be on her own, it’s anyone’s guess how this mysterious being, named Tamberlane, ended up in their town of Treehollow.
Fostered by Belfry, the accident-prone bat, and guided by a colorful cast of animal characters, Tamberlane’s mysteries continue to unfold. But questions burn in everyone’s minds: who, and what, is she? And could she have something to do with the far-off and unspeakable taboo, Abroad?”
Chimeran Legends by Aurum K.
“In a world run by three gods, and dependant on the powers of 6 magic weilding gems, follow the journeys of young furry, feathery, and scaley individuals as they travel through the magical fantasy Kingdoms of Chimera, facing terrifying monsters, ferocious beasts, despicable people, and their own personal conflicts.”
