Webcomic / Bunny: Gore Justice

Go To
Komodo's watching...
Bunny: Gore Justice is a webcomic set in the Colkinom universe. It's described as a dystopian tragedy, depicting a grotesque experiment and the protagonists' attempts to put a stop to it.

It follows Bunny, a strange masked vigilante, in her mission to interfere with Professor Komodo's experiment. The experiment involves brainwashing and mutilating thousands of people into being identical, trapping them on an island, then ruling them with an unpredictable iron fist. Mutinies are seen rising and falling, and Bunny befriends the deserter Chopper. Though Bunny isn't exactly trustworthy, Komodo isn't much better, and the choice to pick a side is a risky choice to make.

As expected from the title, the comic contains large amounts of bloody cartoon violence.

Bunny: Gore Justice contains examples of:

  • Absurdly Ineffective Barricade: Although it's reasonable that Rupert and his mob could bust down the mutiny's makeshift barricade, Big Blue does the same, heavily wounded, singlehandedly, with an injured Ripley over one shoulder. She's the mutiny's tank for a reason.
  • Absurdly Sharp Blade: Bunny's knife has been seen slicing foes with ease, and apparently can cut stone.
  • A Day in the Limelight: The first acts of Chapter 3 focus largely on Dr. LaPinsky.
  • Animal Motifs: Bunny's rabbit imagery. There's also Komodo's namesake, and the reference to Caligula being Komodo's 'faithful hound'. Bunny's rabbit imagery even goes so far as to give her shadow rabbit ears when not wearing the mask.
  • Anyone Can Die: Almost to the point of absurdity. When the webcomic begins, Chopper reveals that 21 of the 27 mutineers are already dead. And then, to make matters worse, 2 more die in the raid on the Shop-Mall.
  • Art Evolution: The first few scenes are very simple and sketchy, but the style develops into something far more tidy and dynamic further along.
  • Artistic License Biology: Most of the gore depicted is... less than accurate. Victims explode into fountains of blood, entrails and chunks.
  • Artificial Human: Komodo. His skin is described like that of a mannequin, and then on page 400, he takes off his face...
  • Art Shift: Commonly used in dramatic scenes, or for comedic effect, juxtaposing the simplistic style.
    • The entire intermission between the second and third chapters is presented in a different style.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: All three villains - Rupert is affably evil and pretends to be nice to Mr 16 until he snaps, Komodo maintains a sickly-sweet facade even while manipulating and bullying his cohorts, and Caligula seems to truly believe that what he's doing is the kindest thing. They'll all be nice to you, but it won't end well.
    • The heroes could also qualify - Bunny's a good friend but attacks without warning, Chopper abandons others at the first sign of danger, and in Chapter 3 we see sweet, kind Dr. LaPinsky fly into a rage and wreck her entire office because Hyeon-Jeong didn't show up for an appointment.
  • Big Damn Heroes: When Ripley is about to be attacked, Bunny saves their skin by opening a repulsion portal and causing an enormous, hideous monster to eat their attacker.
    • Dr. LaPinsky fends off the Repulsion Wyvern, heavily injured, armed only with a bottle of booze.
  • Blind Mistake: Rupert makes one big one. When his glasses are knocked off and he's in a hurry to catch the heroes, he's told to dispatch of a citizen with Catastrophic Rememory Syndrome, and he does this by shooting them. He shoots the wrong person.
  • Blood from the Mouth: Bunny coughs up blood after being impaled by Caligula.
    • Rupert is only convinced to operate on Dr. Dr. LaPinsky when she looks up at him with blood dripping from her mouth.
  • Blood Knight: Caligula. Although he initially appears stoic, he soon takes on the impression of a fanatic who worships Komodo, becoming crazed in his desperation to please his master. Just look at this face. Ugh.
  • Body Horror: Most of Chopper's guilt-induced visions. Some aren't so bad, but the worst include melting flesh, charred pillars of bodies, and heads splitting apart mid-conversation.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Most of Gehren Island's citizens. Especially Caligula, but some of them are willing to tear other human beings to shreds at the slightest provocation.
  • Break the Cutie: Chopper and Dr. LaPinsky, and to a lesser extent, Bunny.
  • Characters Dropping Like Flies: In Chapter 1. It's mostly calmed down by Chapter 2, and Chapter 3 seems downright peaceful in comparison.
  • Cheer Them Up with Laughter: Dodge threatens Chopper with this in Chapter 1.
    Dodge: Because I believe in you!!! And if you don't — I'll tickle you to bits! 'Cos your laugh is — SO CUTE!!!
    Chopper: (horrified) Dodge, n-NO!
  • Conveniently Timed Attack from Behind: One occurs in Chapter 2, in which Chopper conveniently snaps out of his hallucination, hits Caligula with a rock from behind, and allows Bunny to escape his grasp.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Most rebels who are caught by Komodo face this. Being crushed by contracting walls, eaten by dogs, thrown out of the window of a skyscraper, and dropped into acid are among these.
  • Deal with the Devil: Any deal with Komodo. Especially notable in the Dr. Spindle fable from Chapter 3, where Spindle, a failing children's TV star, is horrifically mutilated after making a deal with Komodo to test his inventions on the show.
  • The Dreaded: Rupert and Bunny - their first appearances come with identical reactions from their prey.
  • Driven to Suicide: Big Blue lets a mob tear her to pieces as she can't take the misery of the island anymore.
  • Drowning My Sorrows: Glacier and Spindle are both seen dealing with their troubles by drinking.
  • Eldritch Location: The Repulsion Zone. It consists of huge, red mountains, floating platforms, and many an Eldritch Abomination.
  • Eviler than Thou: Sort of played for laughs between Rupert and Caligula, who constantly seem to be trying to outdo the other as best villain, but played straight with Komodo. Rupert spends a lot of Chapter 2 being the toughest, nastiest, grossest, biggest baddie he can be, but is one-upped and chewed out by Komodo, who gives him these reassuring lines:
    Komodo: You will never be my equal.
  • Fin Gore: Bunny bites off two of Ripley's fingers during the Shop-Mall scene.
  • Flash Back: There's one in Chapter 2, but it's subverted at the last moment - it's actually Mr 16's dream.
    • Played straight to some degree with Chapter 3, depicting Dr. LaPinsky's past, as told by her diary.
  • Foil: Rupert to Caligula, and Dodge to Komodo. To some degree, also, Glacier to LaPinsky.
  • Foreshadowing: LaPinsky loses her camera in the Repulsion Zone when the RePulseChamber runs out of battery, alluding to her later fate during the power outage.
  • Friendly Tickle Torture: Glacier to LaPinsky in Chapter 3, upon discovering that she's ticklish. Also implied that Dodge has inflicted this upon Chopper in the past.
  • The Glomp: Bunny, to Chopper, after she realises he's not dead after the apartment building was blown up.
  • Gone Horribly Wrong: Both teleportation chamber experiments. Dr. LaPinsky is lost in the Repulsion Zone for a month and comes back wrong, and Dr. Spindle is stretched to an inhuman proportion, mutilated and traumatised.
  • Grotesque Cute: The round-faced and big-eyed characters all look pretty cute, until you remember Bunny's being forced to smile by hooks in her mask and Dodge has a stitched-up glasgow smile, to name a few.
  • Guilt Complex: Most prominent in Chopper. His mental state's decline began with deserting Mr 4 in Komodo Tower, and only got worse. He frequently has hallucinations of other mutineers blaming him for their deaths, products of his own guilty mind.
  • Heroic BSoD: Dodge has one after seeing Mr 4's body mounted on the fence of Komodo Tower. He becomes incapable of speaking, and has to be led away by Jazz.
  • Hope Spot: Many times. Often incorporates Yank the Dog's Chain. For example:
    • Just as Mr 16 seems to be turning back to the good side after his brief consideration of surrender, Rupert makes the decision for him, stabbing him in the foot and bludgeoning him to unconsciousness.
    • The remaining mutineers' escape from the Shop-Mall seems to be going smoothly, until a tentacle wraps around Dodge's ankle...
  • I Just Want to Be Loved: This is implied to be Caligula's motivation when obeying Komodo.
  • It's All About Me: Professor Komodo, and to a lesser extent, Rupert.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Rupert's advice to Citizen 733/Morgan is "Don't EVER get addicted to online torture porn". Solid advice.
  • Killer Rabbit: Bunny. It's unknown why she chose the rabbit motif, but it only serves to make her creepier.
  • Laser-Guided Amnesia: The Re-Education. One of the civillians at the start says it 'isn't so bad'.
  • Longing Look: Chopper gives Dodge one of these in Chapter 1, right before Bunny attacks Ripley.
    • Caligula often casts longing looks to the sky. Why? Because Komodo's always watching.
  • Love Martyr: Caligula gives long speeches on how much he adores Komodo - but when he and Komodo are finally seen together, Komodo terrorises him, slaps him, and brings him to tears with criticism - all the while, Caligula's odd smiles imply that he still feels as loving towards Komodo.
  • Mad Doctor: Doctor Rupert Basil Basingstoke.
  • Masochism Tango: Highly implied that Caligula is dancing this, though most of the physical pain is self-inflicted.
  • Mood Whiplash: Frequently, and in multiple directions - when it moves from silly to serious, it's usually because someone just got maimed/died. Deliberately invoked by Komodo, who uses this to terrorize others, particularly Rupert and Caligula.
  • My Master, Right or Wrong: Almost anyone who isn't rebelling seems to invoke this - exemplified best by Megaphone Man, who claims that all the horrible things their master Komodo does are worth it if he keeps his promise. But, according to Bunny, this is unlikely.
  • Non-Answer: Bunny, almost every time she's asked something, either shrugs or just puts her hand on the asker's face until they get frustrated and give up.
    • A recurring theme in Chapter 3, as Dr. LaPinsky struggles to get any information out of Komodo, Rupert or Glacier. She eventually snaps at Glacier and gets some answers, but she's constantly surrounded by vague answers.
  • Only Six Faces: Hell, barely even six! Deliberately invoked as part of the experiment: everyone on the island is mutilated to look identical.
  • Poirot Speak: Morgan peppers their sentences with Welsh phrases and words to indicate that they've regained their identity.
  • Punny Name: Gehren Island, or gore island, was formerly known as Hope Island. Very subtle, Komodo.
    • Dr. Glacier's middle name is 'Mentha', the technical name for the mint plant, referring to her surname 'Glacier' also being a type of mint.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: Bunny is often drawn with bright red eyes. Additionally, Helga LaPinsky comes back from the Repulsion Zone with one red eye. What's more is, when she's angry, both eyes turn red.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: Bunny and Caligula.
  • Repressed Memories: A side effect of the Re-Education. Some citizens seem to 'remember' more than others.
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: Komodo is, obviously, named after a Komodo Dragon.
  • Self-Harm: One of the mutineers, Van, is shown to be prone to this - driving nails through the skin of his own bicep. Caligula also does this, in the form of self-flagellation.
  • Sinister Minister: If this page is anything to go by, Caligula was one of these, likely the second type, running the Church of Komodo. The religious imagery surrounding his 'preaches' emphasise this, and he even gives himself A Taste of the Lash.
  • Survivor Guilt: Chopper. Partially due to the fact that many deaths were slightly his fault, or so he believes.
  • Trigger Phrase: 'There's no Welsh between them', to the Messenger/Morgan in Chapter 2; this causes them to remember their history teacher, which leads to them remembering their entire life pre-Gehren island, in one go, resulting in a breakdown.
  • Vomit Discretion Shot: Mr 16 throws up after repeatedly having his head forced underwater by Rupert, who proudly remarks that it's 'mostly bile and water', and that he managed to get it all in the bin.
  • Wham Line:
    LaPinsky: He took off his face!
  • When She Smiles: LaPinsky remarks that she rarely sees Glacier smile, and when she does, it lights up her face. Awww.
  • Yank the Dog's Chain: Repeatedly. It keeps the tone nice and bleak. The greatest example is the mutiny rushing to escape the Shop-Mall via a fire escape, only for Mr 16 to reveal that Komodo had the fire door bricked shut. The cruelty of this Hope Spot causes Chopper to believe that he's hallucinating, and Mr 16 to break down.
  • You Can See That, Right?: Often invoked by Chopper, though it's wise, due to his hallucinations.
