Air Pirate Funnies is where parody met lawyers

Air Pirate Funnies was created by Dan O’Neill with the help of Bobby London, Shary Flenniken, Gary Hallgren and Ted Richards back in 1971. Only 2 issues were ever printed. The first in July, the second in August of that year. Air Pirate Funnies was an underground comic (meaning it was not published by some major publishers but by those who worked hard creating the work). Air Pirate Funnies was drawn in the style of the 1930s Disney comics but showed the characters engaging in purely adult behavior such as sex and drugs. I know this seems very tame by … Continue reading Air Pirate Funnies is where parody met lawyers

COVID-19 and Furries: The impact today

The novel coronavirus COVID-19 is everywhere – and this affects everyone, no matter which part of this planet you happen to live upon. Furry conventions and meets are of no exception – there are numerous of them being canceled, especially those scheduled earlier in the year such as Canada’s Furnal Equinox, the US’ Furry Weekend Atlanta and Thailand’s Thaitails. To add on, as governments gradually tighten measures to prevent the furtherance of the virus, from gathering restrictions to stay-home notices, more meets were forced to cancel as well. Other cons which are scheduled later in the year have released numerous … Continue reading COVID-19 and Furries: The impact today

MFF 2019: Friday Dec 6

Yesterday was my 1st day at MFF this year and it started off with some confusion. You see, this year I decided to be a Sponsor – I knew I’d get some benefits but who knew it was going to start off with a lot of confusion. First I was sent in one direction, then another. I had to ask 5 people where to go when you are a Preregistered Sponsor, and then was sent to 5 different places with the last one being the correct one. I found that some people even suggested upgrades to cut wait times and … Continue reading MFF 2019: Friday Dec 6
