Weekly Wonderous Moment in Comics #34

In 1969 Harvey published a female Archie knockoff called Bunny. It was wild, it was kicky, it was mod, it was fab.

Who were the stars of this book?

Well, there was Arnold Van Greenpockets, the rich British kid

Bunny, the star

Esmerelda, the evil dark haired rival of Bunny's

Honey, Bunny's litttle sister

Some guy/girl who is never seen again

Marcy, a stylish black woman

and Gideon, the...... uh, the .....
what the hell is this guy supposed to be?
An African-American Emmit Kelly dropping acid?
I'm so glad that the African American male doesn't dress foolishly anymore.

Oh good grief. Why is it that the blonde is always the heroine, and the brunette is always the bad girl?

Why does the British guy have a Dutch last name? Where is Waldo? An Elizabethan neck ruff on the African-American?

Where do you FIND this stuff?
