The Confectionaries Review

The Confectionaries are described as:

Long ago a wizard created magical creatures made of candy. Left all on their own these candy characters soon find that the world is stranger than they imagined, and they may not be alone after all!

The Confectionaries follows the adventures of two children who discover the castle, and the new friends who live there.

The Confectionaries is full of magic, mystery and adventure!

In the same vane as The Littles, and The Secret World of Arietty we get creatures that are there but go unseen by most. Except in The Confectionaries they are anthro and human size.

Review:

Overall I though the story interesting, as every few panels you want to know more. If you like stories about hidden worlds you should give The Confectionaries a try.

Akela by Ben Goodrich sample Review

I know the description sounds fairly strange but so are the current circumstances with this book. But I’ll try and explain. I picked up this sample from Goal Publications when they were at MFF 2021. I really didn’t know what I was getting I originally thought it was a short story of some kind, after all it’s only has 12 pages. Until I actually read it.

But since Goal Publications are going out of business, so where does that leave the author on Amazon of course and the percentage they take out.

The Review:

The plot says anthros have always been there, but in hiding until something happens and they meet.

The 9 pages of actual story is truly interesting, are they here or just am I imagining things. Seeing something out of the corner of your eye and unsure if it is real? It’s extremely well written and in my opinion it’s worth getting a copy. So where

The Sprawl Review

I picked up The Sprawl while looking for material to post reviews later from MFF. I want to say I knew nothing about it, and maybe your the same. But what I found WOW!!!!

The Sprawl is:

Sci-fi/horror meets dark fantasy on a dead world.  Its only inhabitants are the descendants of an ill-fated colonization mission.

Now, the descendents live huddled together in an ever-growing mega-city known as The Sprawl.

After a survey expedition disappears at the south pole, a search and rescue mission is dispatched.  Tasked with discovering the fate of the expedition what they uncover could unleash unfathomable horrors upon all those who inhabit The Sprawl.

The Sprawl is rated Mature. It contains scenes of violence, horror and nudity.

But what I found was the most intense and action packed tale that I hadn’t seen the likes of since and I am not joking Spawn. Not only is it very well written, but the one I picked up should be called a graphic novel, and not just a comic.

As the description above says it is mature, and I promise if you love intense action give The Sprawl a chance. You will not be disappointed.

1-3 of the comics are available as a collection and they do have a volume 4

Jack Legend In… Adventure of a Lifetime Review

It is described as

The Legend family has a grand legacy that goes on for generations. Each member of the family had a mastery of a trade, craft, field, or area of expertise. Warriors, artists, inventors, leaders, and many more made up this family. Lately, they’ve gone silent and almost faded into myth, but rumor has it, one member of the family lives on…

Join Jack Legend and his gang as he is cast into a world of adventure, in a quest to find his greatness! A little bit of comedy, a little bit of action, some cute characters, and adventure galore!

Writer and Artist: Joseph Opossum

Jack Legend is rated All Ages.

But what you get is a different kind of pirate adventure, although Jack knows about his pirate legacy he is currently not a pirate. I know it sounds strange but the story starts in the middle of a forest where he finds a pirate ship broken in 2 with a full crew in hiding. Although I did find the story entertaining I was wanted to know more.

Currently there is only 1 volume, hopefully Ringtail Cafe will give us more over time to flesh out this rather interesting adventure.

Foxes in Love Volume 2 Review

Yes I got both and after reading the pair I am delighted. Foxes in Loves can make you smile and laugh and at least for a little while make you forget about the way the world is. What can I say I loved both books.

Interesting enough Foxes in Love Volume 2 is only available from Fenris Publishing

Ringtail Cafe Comic Series Review

Ringtail Cafe describes itself as Secret organizations, sarcasm, smaram and coffee shops. Limited Dental Coverage.

What you get are fast paced stories filled with humor as the entrance to HQ is through the Mens Room door that is pure fun. If you pick up the comic say at a con as I did. Each story is complete in 1 issue and there is a collection of all 30 available in 2 volumes from Ringtail Cafe the publisher.

Overall they are a light read, and like I said fun more spy spoof than James Bond

You can check out the issues here

Book Review: Foxes in Love Vol. 1

Foxes in Love is a cute comic about these 2 foxes absolutely in love with one another. What can I say other than I am a fan. They are cute they sometimes makes me laugh. There is nothing wrong with that. If your a fan go get yourself a copy it’s available both on Amazon and Fenris

Fox Dad Book Review

To me buying Fox Dad was a MUST, I was hoping to get it at MFF 2019, but it was sold out. I know why, it is nothing short of great. If you have been following Fox Dad webcomic as I have, you have grown to love this comic about a family of fursuiters. Each strip is just filled with furry humor, I think being a furry helps and the jokes are something a furry understands.

In short a very solid 10 out of 10 you can not go wrong buying this, as it is just about perfect and well worth repeated reading if you want a laugh.

You can get it here or at your next fur con

Although Ringtail Cafe never quite confirmed this I think it’s safe to say that Fox Dad book was close to be the #1 item sold at MFF

Shark Week edited by Ian Keller Review

Shark Week gives you 19 different stories by 19 authors who all take the simple theme of writing a story about the ocean filled with intelligent life and turns it on it’s ear. What I have found are stories that go beyond my imagination. For example ocean creatures preforming swimming acts, that turn in to a wondrous delight. You actually wonder how did the author manage to write this act of pure wonder. But the one that stands out in my mind was this little tale of this hermit crab and it’s adventure flirting with death seemingly every time it moves, but yet somehow managing to survive it all as if it was nothing.

Each story is like that, taking us to a world most of us have never seen. Sure things are different than they are in real life. But that is what a good story should do. It should take us beyond what we know, to a world unlike anything you can imagine. Each are an adventure, a tale, or even just something on the author’s mind. That in my opinion will delight you with every page.

The World’s Worst Apocalyptic Romance in the Galaxyby Van Millvele Bad 72 Book 1 Review by Ahmar Wolf

Bliss is your standard spacefaring world, a society that is just advanced enough where robots and other intelligent machines are apart of their daily lives. Everyone is at peace, you could even grab a pizza from a nearby restaurant driven you there by a super smart car. Who might have a conversation with you on your journey. Otherwise all is well.

Until something went wrong and all these intelligent machines went on the rampage. They include creepies, jester robots, zombies and happy evil pets so no one is having a good time.

Except for Betty, she is a host from a TV show who came to Bliss to basically takeover the world (insert evil laugh here). Armed with her apocolyptic computer virus.

What Van Millvele have given us is a light hearted look at an apocalypse. Where the Evil Betty plans to make the planet Bliss her own laughable, which starts when she kills her partner Raymond. Who is kept alive for short period of time being loaded to one computer for a few hours before it burns out then being loaded to another and so on. Her partner the Evil King Valor even has his own plans. Meanwhile Betty’s own servants hate her so no one is entirely loyal.

Meanwhile 2 members of her former crew Allen and Delkcoda have enough evidence to put Betty away for life. But like everyone else they want to get off of Bliss.

The story goes in to a lot of backstory of each of the characters and we learn what makes their decisions. Which is rare in a lot of books, especially when for the most part all of the main characters are connected in often surprising ways.

Like the zombies in this tale, who really aren’t zombies. It’s more like someone with a plant based infection which slowly kills them as they hunt for sugar. Oh sure they do go for the standard brains, but they rather have the sugar.

So as you see nothing is like any other Apocalyptic tale you might have seen. Meanwhile Allen and Delkcoda fall in love as they fight off enemies.

Finally the other galactic governments take notice and send help. This is when Col Ghoul Flint enters the story, despite his name is a good guy who wants to help everyone escape the planet Bliss. But also put those behind this in prison for life if not longer.

As everyone starts to leave, evidence is gathered. I really have to give it to the author for including themselves in this tale which can include furries and dragons. Not in person but a quote or even forwarding evidence to the right party.

As plans are finally made for the evil doers arrest. We learn why the backstories were important. It seems Allen and Delkcoda can’t be together…at least not at first. Do to Delkcoda’s family. Who in my opinion could easily be a guest on The Jerry Springer Show. They are that messed up.

Until Col. Ghoul Flint enters the picture and routes out a little corruption at the prison planet – Pit Island is where Allen is now employed. Also making arrangements for Delkcoda can join their true love and get married.

Then it hits you, this is also a love story.

Still one of the most interesting stories I ever read, and you actually understand the motivation of these characters.

I know a lot of people say “I want to read, something different”. This story is and it has enough staying power to hold you through the entire story. I found whenever I got busy doing something, somewhere in the back of my mind. I wondered what happened to this character or that.

I found the ending very satisfying.
