A nasty bunny this one. No Easter eggs or hot cross buns, this guy comes bearing porn tapes, an alcohol problem and a wide range of swear words.

Psycho gets into a range of scraps: there's a yelling match between him and another drunk on a train, some seedy goings on at the carnival. Bunny is a loud mouth, and the humour comes from his gruff, insulting manner. He doesn't like other people/animals and talks to everyone in a rather direct manner.

The humour is muted. Farting bums don't really rock my world. The idea of Psycho Bunny is more interesting than the actual execution. Michele's art is 'flat' in terms of a lack of 3d details. She experiments with a variety of toning techniques but has yet to settle into her own style. Here's hoping things improve for #2.

In a Word: Rough.
