A new hero rises from mountains of consumer waste, mass homelessness, and devastating climate change. Some call the hero a myth, an urban legend, but others know that it's the JUNK RABBIT come to life!
JIMMIE ROBINSON brings a new take to the dystopian tale of how climate disaster alters not only our world, but also the heroes that literally rise from it. Swamp Thing meets RoboCop.

    Final ThoughtsWhile characters in the dome remain distant in Junk Rabbit #1, those inhabiting the Sink seem more relatable. The actions of Richard Masters and Chela Omina speak to class differences in a gender-neutral world. The relationships among the Poorand their inherent sense of communityremind us that prosperity and happiness are not inseparable. Their devotion to a mythic hero underlines the power of faith. The highly thematic nature of this comic invites contemplation. Is Jimmie Robinson's labor of love more than another byproduct of human existence? As always, you decide. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Apr 7, 2023

    Junk Rabbit is a relentless, slow-moving affair that feels like it might be headed somewhere. Robinson is recycling old post-apocalyptic tropes that have been around for the better part of a century now. To really make an impact on the page, hes going to need to go down the rabbit hole of contemporary cultural anxiety. Otherwise, its going to feel like a perfectly forgettable rummage through the trash of previous pop cultural works of dystopian fiction. Robinson has clearly laid the groundwork for an interesting series. Time will tell if he manages to make something of it. Read Full Review

    Junk Rabbit #1 is an interesting start. It doesn't quite excite but there's something there, lots of potential to be had. If nothing else, the visuals are top notch and really shine. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 3, 2023

    Junk Rabbit #1 is the definition of world building. Though the title character certainly makes their presence known it's not just about them. Jimmie Robinson spends most of Junk Rabbit #1 getting the reader to invest in the world of the series. That is largely accomplished though full long-term investment will be made with how the second issue builds on this foundation. Read Full Review
