Did anybody care for Better Days by Jay Naylor? It was a webcomic that ran consistently for six years (which is something of a shock in itself).
He uses little animal avatars to explore themes of sex, violence, and what it's like for children to grow up with messy, imperfect and unplanned exposure to those things. Sometimes the animals represent different races, and you'll catch on pretty quickly if you read it. He sometimes lays it on a bit thick with his political and gender philosophies, but even if you don't agree with the views presented it still makes for an endearing and well-constructed read.
I went back over it recently and quite enjoyed it. He's now updating one called Original Life which is more light-hearted, I can report back on that when I've read through more.
The writer is also a furry artist, which I don't care for at all, and I understand might make it a contentious topic in most places. I think it speaks to the merit of the comic, though, when even someone who dislikes that aspect can still appreciate it.
