In issue one of Man Goat and The Bunny Man, we got the joyous, and sometimes cringe-inducing, pair of cryptids, Floyd and Phil. They walk a perilous line of helping keep people safe, while trying not to be found out, as well as keeping those like them as in check as they can. But with monster hunters and a satanic cult after them, they may not be able to escape the limelight.
Let’s hop into Man Goat & The Bunny Man #2! (Yep, went there.)
Looking For Love In All The Wrong Places
Readers are treated to some background on Phil as he awakens from a nightmare in which he is a defiant hell spawn who wants nothing but to defy the expectations his creator has for him. Floyd’s biggest problem is that he wants love, the love of the pretty pet shop girl.
The feeling of a lack of respect, no matter the good intentions, causes a fight to happen between our guys. They go their separate ways, one to investigate further and the other to his date. Neither of them were prepared for what they find, and as Phil and Tammy try to make it out alive from the trap the cult has set, Floyd has much bigger problems, and sadly, they aren’t going away in 4 seconds.
This series would seem to fall so far and away from what the a typical series is for Zenescope, but it doesn’t fall far from the tree. It has some extremely funny moments, like the joke about a rabbit vibrator with year old dead batteries doing more than poor Floyd. The creative team gave us an enjoyable story and the same level of art that one expects when reading Zenescope, with great expressions and beautiful colors being just a few of the excelled at points.
There isn’t much depth to Man Goat and The Bunny Man yet. Then again, that could be the point, that the series isn’t about having depth, but being all stuff and fluff. With one issue left and a cliffhanger that catches the eye, I am hoping to see more, more to draw me and make me care.
This is the hard hitting issue where things begin to move at a faster pace. I will say that it is outside of the box in presentation. It really feels like being in a buddy cop-style comedy.
