So I took a bit of a hiatus from updating the Rabid Rabbit news blog to focus on my own work for a while, but now I’m back and I intend report on a more regular basis. Yes, as the title states so clearly I packed my bags and took Rabid Rabbit to Portland, Oregon for the Stumptown Comic Festival and not long after that I packed up a rented mini-van and drove to Canada for TCAF- These events were fantastic but convention season isn’t over yet! Grand Street comics fest is on the horizon and I’ll be taking the rabbit there so I hope to see you then!

Behold- RABID RABBIT #14- “I ♡ Rabid Rabbit” our foray into the steamy world of ROMANCE. You might be asking yourself what do cartoonists know of romance and that would be a fair question- but you will be surprised at the vast wealth of collected experience and knowledge of seduction and flirtation that Rabbit artists have (probably not so much at the lack of, but there you have it)
If you don’t believe me, just gander at this gorgeous wrap around cover produce by our very own MATT ROTA!

Again. We’re going there again. This time it’s going to be a bit more sweet, maybe you’d even say romantic. That’s right. The theme for the next Rabid Rabbit is “ROMANCE” and all the terrible things that are associated with it. We’ll be having a dual festival debut for this issue- Since Stumptown and MOCCA are on the same weekend this year the book will debut at both!
Stay tuned to this spot- there will be more information appearing here!
The comic above was written by C.M.Butzer, Layout by Paul Hoppe, and Drawn by Chadwick Whitehead
