Plus “Babes & Bullets”, the noir pastiche that was basically Blacksad 1.0 and was popular enough to get its own spinoff animated special later. I remember the art for it looking spectacular— just realistic anthro cats in suits doing detective things, in moody greyscale. I wish I could find more images
Don’t talk to me about Blacksad. It could’ve been this and then it did a big What If Furries Were A Racism Allegory
@hi_cial the ONLY reason Maus works is because it’s nonfiction and the anthro conceit is brought up multiple times in the text
@irisjaycomics i honestly think the cavalier attitude w which the holocaust is discussed & amount of holocaust denialism in the usa especially has made ppl miss. That. Aspect.
Insert "wow cool furry race allegory" bullet shooting over the head meme here
@hi_cial y'all tasted the piece of cheese wrapped around the bitter pill of the Holocaust's cruel realities and were like "hey this tastes great, we should make this into a queso dip or something"
@irisjaycomics Oh yeah, I remember that book. I still think about parts of it, especially The Garden. I wish it had been much more of a thing, all those different stories were waaaaay more creative than anything else ever done with Garfield.
@Soreth it was cool! And like PAWS Inc is well-off enough and Garfield is a pretty bulletproof IP at this point, they might as well try it again!
@irisjaycomics I dunno, I think Jim Davis has a screaming fit if anybody tries to be creative with the property these days. We might have to wait for him to pass away before anything cool can happen there again. <..<
@hi_cial god FUCK yes. I can only imagine what they did to fill an entire magazine with garf content
@irisjaycomics a lot of merch photos!! Reprints of older art! Letters! Anecdotes any true garf fan read a hundred times already! Uhhhh i think it hyped the tv show but i honestly dunno
@irisjaycomics mostly i remember ripping out pages and putting them on my wall which was just plastered w garf (including my own fanart of him) and coveting the garf tummy fishbowl w all my wee heart
