REVIEW: ‘Auntie Agatha’s Home for Wayward Rabbits,’ Issue #6

Reading Time: 2 minutes

It’s always bittersweet whenever a comic series ends. On one hand, it’s incredible to see how the story ends and looking back at the series as a whole. On the other, it’s sad to know that your favorite series is ending. Auntie Agatha’s Home for Wayward Rabbits #6 which is published by Image Comics, is written by Keith Giffen and illustrated by Benjamin Roman has been one of the few comic series that I keep up with every month, without fail and marks the end of the series.

Sawyer and the rabbits finally have the upper hand on J. Jackson and his goons. They have Naomi and Raquel tied up in the shed. Wanting to prevent any further attacks on Auntie Agatha, Julie, and their home, Sawyer must decide what to do. Regardless of what he decides, this might not end well for everyone.

I have to say that this is a fantastic way to end the series. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time as I tried to figure out if Sawyer did go through with the plan to detonate the explosives to get rid of Naomi and Raquel. Even though the majority of the comic has had a serious tone, it never lost its humorous and heart-warming elements. It balances the entire comic out, which has been one component of the series that has remained consistent.

One of the more heart-warming moments in that stood out can be seen in the panel above. Sawyer is conflicted on whether or not to detonate the explosives. It provides an easy solution to the problem overall, but it does mean he would be murdering people. He’s going into his backstory, explaining just how much Auntie and Julie mean to him. He owes so much to them for saving him and the other rabbits. It makes sense for him to try and do everything he could to protect his loved ones. It also delves into animal neglect that people don’t sommelier’s to talk about often.

Overall, I’m confident in saying that I’ve enjoyed not only reading this comic but the entire series. The creators blend elements of fantasy, real-world issues, humor, and a bit of the absurd together to create a comic that anyone could enjoy. The issue is a perfect conclusion to the series, tying everything together and ending in a definite manner. Neatly wrapping everything up in a limited series could hurt the story overall, but since the issue focuses on the theme of family, it provides a heart-warming feeling that will surely leave readers happy. I will surely be re-reading the series and will definitely recommend it to others.
