Review by: Kendra Hale
When we last left Phil and Floyd, things had gotten pretty dire as Man Goat & The Bunny Man #2 concluded. The Cult held Floyd captive and sent his tail, wrapped in a bow, to Phil to lure him to them for their sacrifice. The Cult aren’t the only ones with targets set on Phil though and a standoff is where we jump into the final issue of Man Goat & The Bunny Man. So let’s jump into Man Goat & The Bunny Man #3.
Possession Is Nine-Tenths Of The Law
A stand-off with Cooper has Phil trying to persuade him of the danger bigger than himself. Sheriff Wendell steps in to take out the would be Monster Hunter and the focus shifts back, rightfully, to Floyd.
Phil and Tammy make their way into where The Cult have Floyd, knowing it is a trap. Phil is afraid of the potential evil dwelling within him as a hell-spawn but his friend needs him and for that he is willing to stake it all. But The Cult’s plans don’t pan out the way they want and it is left to be seen if friendship is indeed strong enough to break demonic ties.
The scene with Lauren is hilarious. Man Goat & The Bunny Man as a series has some of these great and unexpected moments of hilarity. It is a balanced writing that could absolutely fill the bill for fluff but comes off as better. Man Goat & The Bunny Man #3 is fast paced and really has to come to its conclusion in a way that flows easily to the end.
As a one shot of a series I don’t know if I would come back for more than a once read. Not to say that as a complete concept it is bad. The 3 issues just did what they needed to do. However, if the world were to expand and this world explored in depth. I would gladly come back for seconds to see the…misadventures of Phil and Floyd with the other Cryptids.
Man Goat & The Bunny Man #3 gives a proper ending to the series and was worth the read.
