We’re back with the almost last look at the most and least popular Bun Toons of the year 2011!
The #2 most popular sparked quite a bit of controversy in out comments section, where Peter David, Kurt Busiek, Leonard Kirk and a host of others got “into it” with our regulars about the meaning, philosophy and specific point of my little Bunny Funny for the week. Also: racism in America and the comics industry in general was discussed.
All because of some new kid playing Spider-Man in the Ultimate Universe…
For a normal post, we might get five or ten comments on a Bun Toon. This one got comments into the hundreds, and sometimes the conversation got nasty.
Our Unpopular Bun Toon entry got nasty on panel, with some grim dialogue about killing the Easter Bunny. It was one of my personal favourites for the year actually, but it didn’t get much of an audience when it went up on Easter Sunday. Is the Easter Bunny a religious icon? Is it sacrilege to mess with him now?
It’s equally possible the Easter Bunny/Comic Book Bonus moment is what frightened people off that day….
It sure scared the hell out of me.
See you tomorrow, with the final entry of 2011, the top rated Bun Toon of 2011, and one of my favourite failures.
