New Web Comic 'The Tail' strives to push Furry mainstream
Hyrax Productions new web comic “The Tail” is about a young Chirran named Ayan, born with no tail, living in a society where your tail is your status symbol. Marked with shame, he and his family are servants and surfs to a noble house within the land. Ayan decides to break with this life and tries to become a knight. When this fails, it leads him to meet Mieu Notra, the Blue Maiden. The girl awakens something within Ayan, and from then on, for better of for worse, their fates are intertwined in a web of love, betrayal, and redemption.
“Furry” is a genre, sub-genre (whatever) that is often looked upon as being on the fringe. Content that is furry tends to hover around two extremes; extremely cute and neuter, or extremely sexualized and containing strong themes of sexual identity, particularly of an off-beat nature. Both extremes are trivialized by the mainstream. “The Tail” is a web comic that attempts to bridge the gap between the off-beat appeal of furry culture, and solid, entertaining story telling that is crucial for mainstream acceptance. — By Hyrax Productions
