I'm a new guy... let me just say I frikken love this webcomic. Jack does a superb job at keeping us interested/hooked to his work! It's also refreshing to see that he's not another stereotypical "furry" artist who feeds his fans endless pervy drawings... Jack has created believable characters. The fine line he can tow around awesome, and funny makes me value his art.
with that being said: I have a question about the nature of the world our heroes find themselves. someone probably already asked this, but I just want to know. this is for Jack or anyone else who has info or ideas on it. Basically, is there a background story as to why there are anthropomorphic critters walking around? The story was very ambiguous about it at first, and Pip even ridicules Art a couple times when he mentions alerting the authorities to the various adventures they find themselves in! this makes me think that the public would think it strange to see a squirrel or cat-girl or a penguin perv... but wait... they go out in public all the time! Kat works as a photographer! Vanity is even a famous author!
so what's the story? are animals just an inferior race of sorts (the Quads basically being lab-rats at Quinten)? or are they a construct of art's overly creative mind?
