Skelebunnies: filthy, funny comics about the skinless bunnies who do Satan's bidding

I just finished my review copy of Tommy Kovac's collection of his Skelebunnies toon, just out from Slave Labor Graphics, and I'm here to tell you that it is juvenile, scatological, offensive, and very, very funny. Here's the basic premise: one day, two cute bunnies are frolicking in a picturesque wood, when a demon appears. He is so sickened by their saccharine romping that he vomits extremely bilious bile over them, skeletonizing them in seconds. To the demon's dismay, the bunnies continue to romp, though they are now the living dead, walking skeletons with Care Bear sensibilities (they are wont to ride a horribly burned My Little Pony as they go about their duties). Satan appears, is likewise appalled, but realizes that the bunnies' vile sweetness has its uses when it comes to sowing evil. For the rest of the strips, that's just what they do: romp, frolic, and commit disgusting acts of pure, unadulterated evil.

Skelebunnies is totally unredeeming, it's pure filth, and I reveled in it. Perhaps you will, too!

  1. Hrm…

    I went through a Slave Labor/Jhonen Vasquez phase in high school. I’ve since grown less fond of that genre of comics, as it seems they often rely on juvenile shock value and forced absurdity in place of real story or character or wit. This sounds similar.

    But for it to garner mention ’round these parts suggests it might be a bit better than the run of the mill Hot Topic Comics. I can’t say I’ll buy it, but I might flip through it if I see it somewhere.

  2. I’ve liked all your suggestions for comics so far, Cory, so I’ll give this a try.

    I have a lot of catching up to do since I didn’t really start buying comics until the age of 30.

  3. Wow! Mr. Kovac was my junior high school librarian back at the turn of the millennium. The whole place used to be plastered with big cutout illustrations encouraging kids to read, but they were always a little bit goth and creepy. We found him fascinating. Best library ever. I bet the kids drove him nuts.

    I found out he made comics much later, and collected a few – wonderful.

    I love it that Cory mentioned him here.
