ChaComics is a furry comic that serves as the best representative of furry fandom. For those who aren’t aware, the furry fandom is a subculture of people who are enthusiasts of anthropomorphic animal characters with human characteristics and personalities like in Disney’s Robin Hood, The Great Mouse Detective, Chip and Dale Rescue Rangers, or any of the Merrie Melodies shorts (starring Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy) as well as any of the Warner Bros.’ Looney Tunes animation offerings. An anthropomorphic character is someone like Goofy or Dippy Dawg that has the ability to speak, wear clothes, and walk on two legs versus someone like Pluto who is just a cartoon dog that can’t speak. ChaComics is one of the premier furry fandom comics around with its colorful characters and engaging stories.
What’s the Appeal of Furry Comics?
* Making furry comics (a neologism for funny animal comics and animation) is appealing because kids from different generations have loved these talking human-like animals for probably decades. Many fairy tales feature cartoon animals that could talk and interact like humans. It’s appealing to see a cartoon character exhibit facial expressions and intelligence that’s quite human while at the same time retaining their animal characteristics.
* They’re also popular in animation because many directors believe that it’s pointless to do something in animation that you can film in live-action. The best cartoons or animated features are those that involve things you couldn’t do on live-action (as dependably or as well), such as portraying anthro cartoon animals that could talk and do human-like things.
* Most furries or furry enthusiasts have been made infamous on the Internet because of how many of them tend to fetishize the funny animal characters they’re fans of, especially when it comes to women cartoon characters. This is because many of the child fans who grew up with such cartoons tend to grow up as fans as adults and adult expectations.
* ChaComics serves as a proud and dependable webcomic that the furry fandom can be proud of because of the way it parodies furry fandom in general while still retaining its own stories and character development so that it could be a standalone comic with an engaging storyline of its own even without the satire part of the equation. It works on multiple levels as a furry webcomic.
