As a great agent of vengeance once said (or at least felt, it’s difficult to remember), rabbits are the devil. Sure, they’re cute when they’re hopping about, munching on plant life, and blissfully luxuriating the way prey animals do. But make no mistake—they are dangerous. Also, kind of rude.

You know that feeling you get when someone with an egg avatar slides into your DMs at 3 a.m. to tell you how much they wish you didn’t exist, and you wonder to yourself, “Who the is this person and what the hell is wrong with them?” Of course you do. So do the heroes of this week’s best new comics.
