Code Name: Hunter is a furry fantasy webcomic (also available in print) in which a government agency in London investigates magical-related situations. Think Torchwood with animals.
It’s drawn by Darcy Sowers and co-written by her and husband Matt. Based on the background material, they’re thinking of it as a long series destined for print, so the serialization is page-at-a-time, not stand-alone updates, with three pages promised a week.
To get an idea of the art, try their “stand-alone issue” of two short stories. The first adapts a Ray Stevens song, which struck me funny once I realized what they were doing. The second is two guys in a bar, which’ll tell you more about the dialogue, before becoming a kind of origin flashback story.
I thought the characters have personalities obvious through the art (they’re distinctive, in other words, which can be difficult to achieve) and the hand-done colors are lovely. I didn’t have time to dive into the longer storylines, but I’d like to. Check it out and let me know what you think.
