About

TwoKinds[1] (also spelled as 2kinds) is a furry webcomic, described by the author as a "fantasy manga", written and illustrated by Tom Fischbach, brother of popular Let's Player, Markiplier. The story focuses on the different species of anthropomorphic animals, known as Keidran, and their relations to humans. Many have speculated on the story's use of race as an allegory for real world race relations.

History

TwoKinds published it's first page on October 22, 2003[2] on the webcomic site Comic Genesis (then known as Keenspace). After some time Fischbach moved to an independent site until 2011 when he moved over to Keenspot[3][23]. In mention to his inspiration for the comic Tom Fischbach said:

I was inspired to write Twokinds after having experienced a lot of racial discrimination from kids at my school, who were predominently white. My writing skills at the time were not very good, but I still felt like I was doing something good by trying to create a good message through my writing. After struggling to create a book for a year, I decided making a comic might be a better option. After working at my art for several more years, I finally came out with Twokinds on October 22nd, 2003.
