An ancient evil will overwhelm the town of Holiday, Vermont, unless Grace, a brave 7 year-old, and her plush rabbit can stop it.

Stabbity Bunny is another publication from Think Alike Productions about a young girl and her stuffed bunny toy. The story starts off with Grace, the girl, being kidnapped. Stabbity Bunny is a very engaging, quick read. It makes excellent use of rhymes as narration and the chronology is well executed. The story’s fluidity is impressive, but certain panels need some more context. I would definitely put Stabbity Bunny in the horror genre. In fact, it reminds me quite a bit of my favorite horror comic of all time, Hack/Slash. The lore has a very similar feel in that it’s creepy in a weird, shocking, magical way. The plot idea gets an A+ in creativity. This type of strange horror is difficult to execute, but the writers did a fantastic job.

My only qualms are that the dialogue needs some more depth and character to it. The primary source of storytelling in Stabbity Bunny are art and narration, but the individual dialogue should not be ignored. Secondly, some of the panels need a bit more context or explanation either through dialogue or narration. Pages 9 and 14 are some that were confusing without an explanation.

Think Alike has a great capability of choosing art talent. The art style in Stabbity Bunny is beautiful and very unique. It fits the story in a childlike horror type of way. The use of shadows, backgrounds, and mist are excellent and contribute to the mystical vibe of this horror story. The colors and choice of font are also reflective of a good eye.

Overall, I would recommend this book to fans of strange or mystical horror, Hack/Slash, or anyone looking for something a little different. The story is definitely not for children. I look forward to seeing Stabbity Bunny progress. It holds a lot of potential to develop a cult following.
