Killer Moth, Vulture, Catman. Their names may bring to mind your last trip to the zoo, but as any comic fan knows, they are also the names of popular (and not so popular) characters.

Cardboard Monocle has compiled their list of the Top 20 Animal Themed Comic Characters, and the list isn’t half bad. Check the comments section to see why your favorite character may not be on the list.

  1. Matthew Peterson on

    The funniest thing there (other than the inclusion of Black Talon, who has none of the attributes of either a chicken or a duck, the two animals in his suit) are the fifty people whining about where Wolverine is. :)

  2. Thanks for the link and the kind words, Matthew! I’ve been a fan of your site for a while, and read it all the time.

    Admittedly, Black Talon was a bit of a guilty pleasure. And as for Wolverine, I really believe he shouldn’t be on the list, and the chastising the whiners is what make these lists so damned fun!

    Thanks again, and keep up the great work.

  3. Gotta love Black Talon. Though thanks to Aqua Teen Hunger Force, all I can think of as I look at the picture of BT is:

    “Chicken arise! Arise, chicken!”
