"Pet My Danger" was my contrabution to 2001's Viva La Monkeysuit! , the third volume of the Monkeysuit (wow, that site's still up?) comics anthology series a bunch of us animation guys self-published together, back when I was still pretending to be Chris McCulloch.
I was living in L.A. while drawing this one (but finished it in New York) and had been in the network television trenches all year writing for The Tick live action series, so I desperately wanted to create something weirder, angrier and more free-form without having to pass it through several rounds of notes from three sets of executives. For some reason, I decided to tackle the "funny animals" genre I so loathe and had a Freudian field day with it.
Yes, The Sluggo Rabbit is basically Brock in rabbit form, and yes, that's supposed to be me at the end.
We Love You,
(Editor's note: I stole the title from my friend, the inimitable (and AWOL) Eli 5 Stone. Where are you, Choppy?
