Aka, a funny thing happened to me on my way to retirement.
I was, getting ready to close up shop. The comic had reached a good stopping point and hiring another writer had not decreased the amount of work I was doing but it did decrease the amount of fun I was having. I was ready to fade away as it were. And then I got a weird email from Antarctic Press.
Antarctic Press is a publishing company that prints some pretty cool comics. Gold Digger and Steam Wars are my personal favorites but all and all they it’s a solid catalog. And the weirdness of the letter was they were asking to publish Blade Bunny.
Obviously, I said sure why not. We started the process of reformatting Bunny for print. Honestly, I thought the deal would blow up at some point. I mean, this is a real company and I am just some doofus on the internet. But against logic it looks like this thing is really happening. You can now preorder the first Blade Bunny comic here:
Or you can go to your comic book store and ask them to order it with this code:
That bit blows my mind. Blade Bunny is going to be on the shelves of a comic book stores next to real comic. I am definitely going to head-canon slashfic Bunny, Cylcops and Jean Grey in a polygamous love triangle… Is Jean Grey alive, evil or dead right now? I lost track.
But the moral status of Jean Grey is not the point here, although that’s going to bug me, the point is that you can buy Blade Bunny in print. And by doing so you can resurrect the series as a whole… like… like Jean Grey being resurrected for the 5th time… or is it 6th?
Going through the old pages of Bunny to reformat them has really started to inspire me for the character again. If the print book does well enough to pay for Erwin to draw it, I am ready to start up making new bunny comics. That’s right all those dangling plot threads will… um… probably remain dangling as my haphazard writing style adds to them creating a huge tangled ball of plot twine. But there will be more senseless murders and nonsensical thought trains form our favorite ninja bunny girl.
