Deflecting? What’s that?

Site News:

I’ve reshuffled the Comics Worth Checking Out section! It dawned on me that it’s a bit silly for me to link big-name comics that everybody has heard of, when I can do a hell of a lot more good for some of my esteemed up-and-coming associates. Check out these additions that you should already be somewhat familiar with if you’ve been paying attention here:

Forsaken Stars by Rob Lopez – It doesn’t have Uncle Chuey, but Rob is a pro and his comic is definitely worth a look if you like sci-fi, horror and fantasy.

Times Like This by Thomas Overbeck – Time travel and occasional nudity? Yes, please. From the artist who made receipts much less boring.

Welcome Back To Roxboro by Landon Fitzgerald – The man who brought you this chilling NSFW tale also presents an offering of slice-of-life anecdotes.

Academicon by Kai Lynk – Kai keeps bringing that Ranma 1/2 influence we’ve seen brilliantly displayed here before, this time in his own original story.


Nate: Man, how pathetic is it that they needed to make a law to keep people from shtupping animals?
Steve: Furries. Oppressed throughout history.

Nate: So is “beating a dead horse” covered under this or the Necrophilia section?
Steve: “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth, you fucking pervert.”

Nate: “You can lead a horse to water, but you can’t fuck it in the ass.”

  1. *Monty Python mode* Get on with it!

    The Negro Guy says what the hell are you getting distracted for?

  3. Shannon says:

    I have to agree, I really want to know what he’s getting to.

    • The Negro Guy says:

      So much suspense for one law.

    • Kevink says:

      Can almost sense that its the legal age in the state is dropped to 17, and that he and Rose split off from the relationship because he was freaked over nothing….That or there’s a new “no having sex in the freezer law” now into effect.

  4. Brendan T says:

    The “You can lead a horse to water…” bit is going in my repetoire of advice.

  5. Jax says:

    The joys of living in NZ. Legal age for sex is 16, legal age for booze is 18.
    It’s a great country – full of teenage mothers and binge-drinking alcoholics.

    • Shinteki says:

      Canadas better, well the Alberta part: Sex 14, booze 18 and as an added bonus the only law about bestiality is you can’t do it infront of a minor. Its a great province full of drunken rednecks and horny furries :P

      • FWATANG says:

        roadtrip? lol

      • Zane says:

        Well that’s not 100% accurate. Yes here in Alberta it is 18 to drink, but the legal age to consent to sex with anyone is 16. 14 and 15 year olds can only consent to sex with people within 4 or 5 years of their own age (I forget exactly how far it is). As for the bestiality laws I can neither confirm nor deny whether that is true since I’ve never met any particularly attractive sheep.

      • Dickweed the Elder says:

        Well of course everything is legal in Canada. that’s because A) there is nothing else to do but get drunk and ****a goat (who also happens to be your ‘kid sister’, and b) even if it is illegal, there are so few people per acre that no one will ever know.

        Sorry, couldn’t resist. Actually, I have a great respect for Canadians. They never get so full of themselves and holier then thou the way we do in the States.

    • Broketoon says:

      Ah Canada…Legal age for sex…16
      Booze…17, 18, or 19 depending…Cant drink in ontario? GO TO QUEBEC! Can’t drink there? go to newfoundland, cause they be always drunk, why else do you think they have that funny accent? Permashmash

  6. Welshbux says:

    I saw this coming and yet… GAH! Still, It’s what really would happen when two geeks attempt to talk about serious things that involve this “real world” I’ve heard so much about on the moving pictures box.

  7. Toaster of Vengeance says:

    Watch the law be about something totally unrelated to sex.

  8. MegaHentai says:

    You realize, of course, that I`ll never be able to hear any of these expressions again without referencing the new-and-improved versions. Dammit.

    On subject of great NSFW webcomics, be sure to give http://www.menagea3.net a look. It`s a personal fave by some fellow Canadians.

  9. Vince says:

    A friend of mine in high school would break awkward silences with the fact that “Bestiality is perfectly legal in Pennsylvania”. It usually caused more awkward silence.

  10. Lando says:

    Arigato Gozaimasu my friend!

  11. Bubbaclaw says:

    As a fur the people that fuck animals and dress in those damed fursuits make the other 90% of us look bad. The majority of furries, myself included, just like to look at the art and the idea of actually fucking anything covered with fur, [and this includes that Italian chick you took to prom] disgusts the hell out of us.

  12. OverlordLaharl79 says:

    blast… why don’t I live in NZ or Canada… the ex and I would be together still if not for that thing… blast. But come on… I wanna see what’s coming up next!

  13. Celtic says:


    I’ve been reading webcomics for years, QC, CAD, PA, OOTS, and etc… but I can honestly say that after recently stumbling onto Treading Ground, it’s become my favorite by far! I may be biased because I’ve found myself in many of the same situations Nate has been in, but who knows.

    Keep up the good work. I can guarantee you’ll always have at least ONE person checking this site every day! :D

  14. Samwise says:

    I laughed pretty hard at these, but I found myself slightly disappointed that you couldn’t work in “a horse of a different color” somehow. I have no suggestions, unfortunately, so i’m also slightly disappointed in myself. It seems like it would be so easy.

  15. chris says:

    It’s back to Skeevy Stevie. Good to see he’s still well in character.

  16. chumash99 says:

    “Dammit! No further distractions! I’m downloading the ultimate yaoi hentai video, and I want you to watch it with me!” At least, I *think* that’s what Steve is saying. ;)

  17. Cassius says:

    I’m guessing that this MIGHT have to do with sex laws…
    Like how in Texas the age of consent is 16, this might be similar. Just an educated guess.

  18. Chrysalis says:

    “A picture is worth a thousand faps.”

    “God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference between furry porn and art.”

    “You catch a lot more flies with honey than with vinegar. And what you do with that fly-covered honey is done of my damn business.”

    “There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a man.” ~Winston Churchill (I didn’t change that one at all)

    “God forbid that I should go to any Heaven in which there are no horses.”
    ~R.B. Cunninghame Graham, on being a animal-loving sick fuck.

    “I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two foxes diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less yiffed by,
    And that has made all the difference.” -Robert Frost

  19. Jack says:

    Damnit! I was using your sidebar to peruse my comics, becuase i was too lazy to click a button and bookmark them.

  20. Wes says:

    Furries are funny until a cult of them moves in next door. Now I have to keep my dogs inside because they constantly try to tell me their “real” names. Banjo and Doctor Ninja are perfectly good names as far as I am concerned.
