    Out of curiousity, just trying to get a feel for who reads the strip…are you male or female, what age are you, and why do you like or dislike the strip? Again, just curious. -Ed Power

    Male, 43, loving the comic because it’s fun, nicely drawn and well written. Heck, I even got the first book… (by the way, you planning on doing others?)

    1. Yes.
    2. Ageless.
    3. I like everything about this strip except for one thing; it’s all reruns. If Gocomics gave you and Melissa the money for new strips, then I would love everything about this strip (The art, the writing, the concept, etc.) without reservation.

    1. Male
    2. 34
    3. Love the interpersonal dynamics. Me and my coworker have much the same thing as Norm and Ashley, if the genders were reversed. I’m the psycho one.

    3. It’s fresh and interesting (I realize these are re-runs, but it’s my first seeing them). The humor is nicely cynical with a dash of sincerity, and the artwork is good. Facial expressions can be kind of static, though (this strip is a good example).

    Male, late fifties,
    -caught this strip on a different site just before it ended -love to see the reruns and would be estatic to see anything new.
    - its funny and bizzar with a touch of pathos.

    Love the interactions, similar to ‘Barney Miller’ or ‘Mash’

    1. female
    2. 16; 17 in July
    3. animals; I think its association with Dilbert is a good thing; I started reading this strip because I was attracted by the use of the sentence, “In the future, all the humans are gone.” I’m really into post-apocaliptic stuff.

    Male, 45, loving the interactions and the play with archetypes and twists with stereotypes that the strip developed through time (such as Maureen’s goals). Also the pretty art. :)

    Male, 58, I like the mix of likeable and snarky in the cast.

    1. I like the strip.
    2. The characters are all talking animals.
    3. No frequent swearing like the characters in the strip Endtown (which is a good thing)
    4. This would make a great animated series.
    5. I give it four stars.

    1. Male

    3. I love the everyday life feel of the strip combined with the fantasy of talking animals. I think it’s a great combo.

    Male, 32, The strip seems to speak to me. But then again i’m an aspiring artist in a job I dislike and i’m balding and a little chubby.

    1. Male

    3. Several reasons, in no particular order: First, I love the art. The strip is consistently pleasing to look at. Second, I love the pop culture references (especially the mash-ups) and general playfulness of the strip. Third, I really enjoy the characters and their relationships. Those relationships always feel real and well-drawn.
