"THANKS FOR COMING
"(Call the police.)"
In which a pink bunny is jabbed repeatedly in the head by a hypodermic needle and injected with whatever it takes to keep the comic going.
Yes, it's mother of invention time.
When creators attend conventions they find it useful to have something to sign and to sell - a print or a comic - to help pay for their way and give their readers an incentive to visit their tables. Jhonen Vasquez, creator of JOHNNY THE HOMICIDAL MANIAC and SQUEE and INVADER ZIM, found himself in need ahead of a San Diego Comic Convention so turned the first of these four fillers around in 24 hours.
That's what these are: fillers. Far from deceitful, Vasquez sets out his stall immediately: he had to fill fifteen pages without a clue how to do so except subject poor Fillerbunny to as much pain as possible. He ran out of ideas on page six. Didn't matter: that was the joke.
Of FILLERBUNNY #3: MY WORST BOOK YET, Mark wrote:
"This book is a bestseller at Page 45. Hordes of dark munchkins sweep through the shop on a Saturday, examine the same shelf as always, point at a few things and then leave. It's a thing."
He wasn't joking.
