I've never been the biggest fan of the "furry" genre, but I do make certain exceptions.  Tracy Butler's Lackadaisy is set in Prohibition-era St. it the late-1920s...which, naturally, is populated by cats.  In this age of manga-inspired (and done on the cheap) everything, it's not often that you find a web-comic that is so well researched and illustrated.  Not just the characters themselves, but everything from the period clothing and settings, right down to the cobblestones on the streets of St. Louie.

Thus far the web-comic has been awarded or nominated for nine Web Cartoonist's Choice Awards (2007-08), two Ursa Major Awards (2007 and 2009), and an Eisner Award (2011).

So, with that said, when Tracy offered up a pre-order for a limited run of hard-bound copies of Lackadaisy Vol. 1 back at the beginning of December....yeah, I jumped at it.  Call it a Christmas present to myself.  I got in contact with Tracy about getting the book signed, but little did I know (she nor the publisher made mention of it publicly) that all of the initial pre-order copies were it a Christmas surprise.  She even offered to personalize mine. :)
