More Classic Funny Animals

Felix the Cat is, of course, one of the classic funny animals from both comic strips and early animation. Now IDW is collecting together the former in Felix the Cat: The Great Comic Book Tails (coming in hardcover this June). Felix’s original artist, Otto Messmer, wrote and drew the bulk of Felix comic strips and comic book stories for Dell and Harvey during comic books’ “Golden Age”. Now IDW presents more than 200 pages of full-color comics, showcasing the magical cat’s journeys on his flying carpet to surreal lands, past times, and Toy Land. Comic historian Craig Yoe edited the collection and wrote the behind-the-scenes introduction.

Coming Soon: The Belfry Boys

The Belfry Boys is a new full-color independent comic book title created by Richard Gaines. He’s self-publishing it, and he’ll be releasing it soon according to the press release on his Deviant Art site. You can see a bigger preview here and here on IndyPlanet. What is it? Belfry Boys is a full-color funny animal comic about “Three goofy bats who bumble through life and cause mayhem wherever they end up. Their adversaries, theĀ  Noo-noo Heads, are annoying creatures that try to pass as funny cartoon characters but with ugly humanoid heads.”
