ROCKET RABBIT #1
by James Baker
(James Baker. Also available in the Poopsheet Shop.)
Wow! This comic is like something that Maggie from Love And Rockets would pick up at the store to read while dining on an entire box of Pookies. It's a boffo SF robot animal adventure: the eponymous rabbit hero, whose ears are jet propulsion tubes, seems to be getting a bit of a swelled ego, punctured periodically by his handler The Professor, a zaftig young braniac. The adolation of the masses doesn't help; but he is unfailingly there when called upon to beat down a team of riotous gorillas, led by Jack Ass, a pinstripe suited mule whose attributes change frequently with his name – Wise Ass, Hard Ass, etc.
It'd be great for kids, despite a little cartoony chesecake. Older eyes might find the first few pages difficult to unbundle – James's page layouts can get a bit frantic – but once the story takes hold, it's a tale the whole family can dig upon.
