The Autumnlands: Tooth and Claw

Written by: Kurt Busiek and Benjamin Dewey

First line: Here’s what you need to know about us—we were good and gentle creatures

Why you should read this book: Action packed and innovative, this volume introduces a society of anthropomorphic animals, some of whom are powerful magicians, concerned that the magic that holds their civilization together is fading. To this richly imagined world, they summon a mythic hero, without fur, fangs, or claws, who is nothing like what they expected. Seen through the eyes of a young dog with a front seat to all the action, Autumnlands introduces a vivid and convoluted world of shifting alliances, political machinations, war stratagems, and massive upheavals of civilization.

Why you shouldn’t read this book: You can't overcome your prejudice against furries.
