And were back. Sort of. Read below for more details.
I was going to have a big announcement about this but things got a bit crazy around here. Anyway the long and the short of it is when I was looking for a new writer for Blade Bunny I encounted a writer that had a very unique idea. It was not Blade Bunny as we know it but it was very good. So I said you know what, let’s make your idea as well. And thus the Ledgend of the Hare was born:
Also. Both this comic and Legend of the Hare are being previews on the same Blade Bunny Patreon as well as a few exclusive comics. We have a story of Bunny and Kyoto being shrunk down to the size of an and as a donor exclusive this week. And not to beat a dead horse but with two comic we need twice as much money so any support will really help:
You probably know I have an opinion on the latest Frank Cho Kerfuffle. I am not on the side of people who pick creative works off of a creator’s personal websites and try to shame them into stop being creative because they believe the creator is being creative wrong. It’s a sadly common action from the whole sex negative/censorship tribe, who, while they are are nothing new online, I still find highly irritating. And yet had this blow up not happened we would have never gotten this awesomeness:

Well played Brian. Well played.
Note: I was thinking of asking Erwin to draw a Milo Manara Pose image but, hell, I can’t beat this.
Frank Cho sold his Spider Gwen image for $1000 and donated the money to a charity for abused women. So just to be clear here:
Total help given to women by butt-drawers: $1000
Total help given to women by all the blogger who were offended by butt drawing on the behalf of women: $0
Actually amend that addendum because I decided to chip in $75 myself.
This is after all a unique opportunity to stick it to the type of people I hate in a way that shines a bright light on their hypocrisy and moral bankruptcy. so;
Total help given to women by butt-drawer and butt-drawer allies: $1075 and counting.
Still $0 help given but the “offended”.
As you know I’m a big fan of the Snow by Night comic. It’s a unique and well researched fantasy comic with a level of character development that is rare to find. Right now the comic is having a kickstarter for it’s next published book and it’s worth an investment.
Now, just for a bit of context, at the same time there is a kickstarter to produce and deliverer blocks of tungsten to people. It has earned $182K. A useless hunk of metal* is earning 200 times that a really good book. There is no justice in this world.
I call on you to support Snow by Night not only because it is a good book, but to try and stem the tide of hipster stupidity. Strike out against the darkness and ignorance of this world and use you money to purchase goods and services not just to be “ironic”. Do it for Adam Smith, Allen Greenspan, the Song Dynasty, and Capitalism!
*On a side note, Tungsten is on of the minerals that funds armed militants in Congo. When buying the tungsten cube to basically just sit on a shelf, even from “conflict free” sources, you are slightly driving up the price of mineral. I guess its unfair to say it’s useless to buy it, you are doing something, specially promoting death and forced labor. Congratulation you had an impact on the world.
** No child labor or murdering of the innocent were engaged in the production of Snow by Night. Just saying.
I am Penfighter, the new writer!
I could wax poetic and confess my excitement to be working on this project but that would get tiresome. Instead, I am more interested to hear what all of Bunny’s faithful readers have to say about her new adventures! Currently, there is only one page out. However, as more find their way here I hope you are all willing to let me know how I’m doing.
As far as who I am, there isn’t a huge interesting story to tell. I am a professional writer working in several fields including theater, fiction, and video game story content. More importantly, I am a husband and a proud father. I am a gamer (Twitch and all) with a passion for good storytelling and competitive multiplayer. (Yes, people like me exist who like BOTH aspects of gaming.)
I am also a fan of Blade Bunny and I hope my fondness for the character helps me write her properly. I enjoy writing comedy and drama to tell balanced stories. This might mean that we see some darker and perhaps more serious moments out of Bunny than we are used to but her whimsical nature and witty banter will serve to balance what is happening around her; As it always has, actually. Speaking of new things, you should expect to start seeing some new regular characters introduced early in the new book. The nature of the Bunnyverse allows for the return of previous characters as well so who knows who will pop in as the pages roll out?
I look forward to seeing you guys around!
Lastly, thanks to Drowemos for this opportunity.
So I was hoping you guys could help me out with something. See, I want to get up early. However, for some strange reason, my bed transmutes to the most comfortable place in the universe every morning. I blame bed gnomes. Or maybe C.H.U.D. I mean Cannibalistic Humaniod Underground Dwellers have to have hobbies right? Sure they are all about eating people but they have to do something in their down time. Switch people mattress might be their idea of fun.
Anyway I’m pretty bad with self-motivation but guilt… I am the master of guilt. So I figure if I had an appointment with someone in the morning that would provide the push for me to thwart the C.H.U.D.’s (or perhaps bed gnomes, I have ruled out bed gnomes) fiendish game and get my ass out of bed. I figure if I set up an open chat in the morning, a time to discuss anything and everything that is going on with the comics it would be something that you guys might be interested in and it would give me a reason to get up early.
So what do you say? Would anyone be interested in a 5:30 to 6:00 am EST time chat? Are you even interested in talking to me?
