I have been trying to get my hands on this book for ages. When I first started getting into graphic novels years ago, “The Saga of Rex” by Michel Gagné was one of the earliest ones I bought. I really loved his soft, cartoony style, gorgeous rendering and dreamy landscapes. I’m also absolutely obsessed with rabbits. When I found out that he had a book called “Insanely Twisted Rabbits”, I had to have it, but couldn’t find a copy anywhere. I even tried to get into contact with the artist himself, but with no success. Then recently, while browsing my favourite secondhand book store, I noticed that they’d had a big influx of graphic novels. Flicking through the titles I was absolutely stunned to see none other than a copy of “Insanely Twisted Rabbits”! I bought it immediately.
This book is pretty self-explanatory. It is literally a book filled with illustrations of the most ridiculous rabbit-like monsters imaginable. In the foreword, Gagné explains that back in his animation days, he and his colleague used to compete together drawing rabbits of more and more ridiculous proportions. He ended up collating all the drawings and putting them together in a book.
Anyway, there’s no story, no plot, no characters. This is simply a book full of weird rabbits and it was right up my alley. If you are also partial to weird rabbits, I would suggest you check it out.
