Thursday night me and a friend saw Wonder Woman.

Let’s just say as long as it was better than Batman Vs Superman, I would’ve been satisfied. Whenever I mentioned this to others, the most common response was this: “Geez, that’s not setting the bar very high…”

Regardless. After settling into those reclining seats in a Manhattan theater with overpriced concessions, the film took me by surprise. It was better than expected. Normally I don’t feed many trends, but this summer is all about Wonder Woman. Better than those silly spinners. The last time I entered into trendy fandom, it was Harry Potter.  Well, kinda-sorta. Never finished the book or the film series. It was more of the idea of Harry Potter being an occultist. So right now, Wonder Woman is all that and a bag of chips.

The next day I tell people I saw Wonder Woman. The response was “did she twirl?”

That was the ’70s television show with Lynda Carter. Not the 2017 film with Gal Gadot.

Growing up, I started with Archie, Harvey Comics and Marvel. From what I recall, I didn’t get DC too much. Then I had one nightmare about Silver Surfer, and my over-protecting mother took away all my Marvel comics. She meant well, but I was stuck with Archie and Harvey Comics. Thanks to the television show, Wonder Woman was allowed. One childhood memory was walking in the street with my mother wearing my Wonder Woman raincoat. Even tried twirling, just like on the show. A few years later, Wonder Woman was left in the dust due to discovering rock music. It wasn’t until a few years after that, in which I discovered Love and Rockets by Los Hernandez Brothers. That forged a path of underground and alternative comics.

In my opinion, Wonder Woman is a MUCH better character than last summer’s girl, Harley Quinn. My disdain for Harley might be explained in another post.

There’s also the backstory of Wonder Woman’s creator, Dr. William Moulton Marston. He was a psychologist, an inventor, and was involved in an extended relationship with both his wife and his domestic partner. All three lived together as both women has children by Marston. Today this would’ve been considered polyamory. This info is common knowledge now, but during his time, the arrangement was kept secret. Let’s also take a moment to acknowledge Wonder Woman’s co-creator Harry G Peter.

Enough digressing here. You probably guessed that this week’s Psycho Bunny sketch of the week is Wonder Woman related. Of course, the lasso of truth revealed only this; that Psycho Bunny is a misanthropic drunk.

Catching up with blog posts that should’ve been online last week. Here I contributed once again to the Sketch Lottery site. That week’s character was the best known bounty hunter in the Star War universe, Boba Fett.

Although Memorial Day 2017 was last week, here’s a Psycho Bunny sketch of the week.

This sketch is different that the others that were posted. Not meant to be funny. Which is why you don’t see the normally alcoholic bunny holding his usual cheap booze. The sketch is about those who sacrificed their lives for the United States.  Now I’m not particularly the most patriotic person in the world. If anything, extreme nationalism irks me. However, there’s something to be said for those who believed enough in any cause to sacrifice themselves for others. This also goes out to those who had no choice but to be drafted.

Over Memorial Day weekend, there were plenty of barbecues, but nary a mention about why this American holiday exists. Memorial Day is more than just a three day weekend.

Introducing the (belated) Psycho Bunny sketch of the week.

Besides this, things have been quiet lately. Transitions take a lot of your time it seems. Meanwhile, don’t forget to check out the two Facebook pages, Psycho Bunny Comix, and Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress.  There’s also Instagram under WitchipooArt. Stay tuned for more updates.

Psycho Bunny is perpetually unemployed.

In fact, he’s the founder, president and CEO of The Unemployment Appreciation Society. It doesn’t mean he doesn’t know an opportunity when he sees one.

Here he tries to apply for a position that’s been recently vacated. It’s a government job. Perhaps someone named Mulder can help…

Introducing the Psycho Bunny sketch of the week for Monday, May 22nd, 2017.

Next month I’ll be at the Artist and Craftsman Zine Fair in L.I.C., NYC. Been keeping a low profile this year, but if you get the chance, come on out. Now here comes the promotional plugs. Don’t forget to click “like” on the two Facebook pages Psycho Bunny Comix and Michele Witchipoo – WitchesBrewPress. On Instagram there’s WitchipooArt. Website still needs updating. Haven’t gotten around to fixing as of yet. In the meantime look out for a new sketch every week.

Psycho Bunny comes from a dysfunctional family. Surprise, surprise. His mother was introduced very early on, in the beginning issues. Below is a sketch dated 2006:

Now here’s a quick updated version. Just in time for Mother’s Day, 2017.

My own mother took slight offense of Psycho Bunny’s mom. She thought his mother was based on her. While I assured she wasn’t, don’t think she quite believed me. My mother passed away in September 2015.

Time for the usual promotional pep talk. Check out the Facebook pages for Psycho Bunny and for WitchesBrewPress. While you’re at it, don’t forget to check out Twitter and Instagram as well. Haven’t had time to fix the website, but one of these days the store should be updated. You can still order comics from the website in the meantime. Besides comics there’s my RedBubble shop. Lately it’s been getting a bit of traffic, but it could use some more. So check it out. Anything else? DeviantArt…that’s about it for now. Till next time.

It’s nice to be back on schedule. Planning on your summer vacation? You might want to take advice from Psycho Bunny…
