Bibliodiscoteque presents: Episode 30 – Josh Latta’s Rashy Rabbit

rashy-ad

Rashy Rabbit is a weed smokin’, rump humpin’, raunchy rabbit who proves how a work can showcase its influences without getting mired in mimicry. Latta creates a book which, upon first inspection, looks like an old Scholastic reader: The anthropomorphic character on the cover, the high-gloss cardboard stock, and the color scheme all seem like a comic I read in the fourth grade…except written by John Waters or R. Crumb. The interior panels showcase the same integrity and detail as Sergio Aragones’ Groo and the content is laugh out loud funny. Both stories in this volume have a sense of charm that make it easy to forgive Rashy for causing so much crap.

Josh Latta: Social Media Queen

5a59f8106e1411e2b20722000a1f97fa_7My pal and incredible cartoonist, Hunter Jin Clark asked me a few questions a while back about the importance of having an internet presence to build/promote a career in comics. While I’m a professional floor mopper slash glory hole attendant I thought I’d take a stab at his questions anyway. Here’s the interview in full, dig it, suckers.

1. What is your primary format for comics? I.e. Mainstream, Small Press, Creator Owned, Webcomics, etc.?

I would consider what I do as creator owned, sure, but mostly I would say is I do a ‘funny animal’ comic.

Lattaland’s Best Of 2012: Forces Of Geek

Best Movies: Killing Them Softly: What a crying shame this movie went over with a thud. From the jarring opening sequence to the hilarious last line. This movie was like heroin to me; totally awesome.  Marley: Look, I’m not really a Bob Marley fan, but one cannot deny he lived quite an interesting life. Just think of how good he woulda been if it weren’t for the Jah bullshit.
Best TV Shows: Boardwalk Empire: Proof that TV is better than movies.  Comedy Bang Bang: Proof that TV is better than podcasts.
Best Books (non-fiction): The Dark Side Of Disney by Leonard Kinsey. Kinsey gives us all of the tips, tricks, scams, and stories that’d have Walt rolling in his cryogenic grave. I love a good scam, especially at a beloved theme park. Life After Deathby Damien Echols SPOILER ALERT  Damien talks about how he killed those kids and got away with it too, dude. Just kidding.

Bibliodiscoteque Episode 30 Josh Latta’s Rashy Rabbit

Several months ago, Erik Carlson  reviewed Josh Latta’s comic Rashy Rabbit and had this to say…

Rashy Rabbit is a weed smokin’, rump humpin’, raunchy rabbit who proves how a work can showcase its influences without getting mired in mimicry. Latta creates a book which, upon first inspection, looks like an old Scholastic reader: The anthropomorphic character on the cover, the high-gloss cardboard stock, and the color scheme all seem like a comic I read in the fourth grade…except written by John Waters or R. Crumb. The interior panels showcase the same integrity and detail as Sergio Aragones’ Groo and the content is laugh out loud funny. Both stories in this volume have a sense of charm that make it easy to forgive Rashy for causing so much crap.

This month, Bibliodiscoteque gave Rashy a soundtrack and I am absolutely jolly-jack  thrilled with the result.

Give it a listen, won’t you?

20 Dollars For Two Sandwiches & Water? A Heroes Con Reflection

L to R: Josh Latta and Rashy Rabbit

Greetings pals, comic nerds or people just googling Heroes Con hoping to find their name.  Welcome to my annual Heroes Con wrap-up extravaganza.  Ugh. I hate the word ‘annual.’ It always reminds me of  non-cannon comics filled with shitty art  that costs more.  It’s not everyday I can make a reference like that, in fact, it’s only 3 days a year when I can, and it’s at Heroes Con, America’s favorite comic book convention.

WANTED: More Readers Like ManLizard Kong Minter

“Rashy Rabbit” by Josh Latta is currently my favorite comic … he’s like a gentler “Felix the Cat” or a naughty “Donald Duck.” The artwork is full of motion and energy. Great, fun stuff. -ManLizard Kong Minter

Shannon Smith On Rashy Rabbit Droppin’ Anchor

“It is a very rich comic.  It really does everything I want a comic book to do and I read them over and over. “- Shannon Smith of File Under Other.

Droppin’ Anchor NOW in color. 

 


Rashy Rabbit (Volume 1) Is Here!

It’s here, man, it’s here! At long last, Rashy Rabbit Volume 1 is in my grubby meat hooks.  Sure, I mean, you COULD look at it as reprints of ‘A Rabbit In King Arthur’s Food Court’ and ‘Droppin’ Anchor,’ but dude, like,  it’s in color and it’s BIG! That’s how my comics were always meant to be seen, in 64  pages in full garish color.

Rashy Rabbit Vol. 1 has a Franco Belgium album vibe to it. I suspect I will be celebrated or  tarred and feathered  in France. Possibly both.  This baby is going worldwide.

 

While I am making grandiose comparisons,  I would say it’s Furry Freak Bros meets Donald Duck.  So if you like to smoke grass and wig out to Yesterdayland, than this is the comic event for YOU! Let’s here it for me!

Look, I can tell you to buy Rashy Rabbit Vol. 1 on Amazon.com until I am blue in the face like the smurfs I so often plagiarize, but I know you’ll do what you want to do.

Fine, I get it. It’s a free fuckin’ country.  But I will make two final suggestions. Come say ‘hi’ to me at Heroes Con (June 22 through 24th).

The next suggestion is to sit back and enjoy hipstermatic photos of a hot chick reading Rashy Rabbit. Think you can handle that?
