A New Comi: Buni

I kind of the like off-beat. That probably why in the corner penthouse of conservative Madison County, I’m a Democrat. Or at least a wishy-washy independent with leftish socialistic commie leanings.

That’s probably also why I like Ryan Pagelow’s Buni comic strip.

Reading Buni is almost like watching those silent movies, where the actions have to speak louder than words because the words have to be written out on a card and pasted on black pages between the action. It adds that bit of Chaplinesque humor mixed with a bit of surrealism, as in the following examples.

The rainbow unicorn one while he’s riding the broken-down kid toy in the slum is my favorite. I like the drunken bum bear especially.
