A Home for Mr. Easter
Written & Illustrated by Brooke A. Allen

A Home for Mr. Easter is something else. High school outcast Tesana discovers a bunny rabbit that lays colored eggs, and quite naturally presumes the fluffy critter to be the Easter Bunny.
A frenetic, breakneck flight from cliché high school jocks, mad scientists, animal rights protesters, a maniacal pet store owner and more ensues. It’s a madcap comic adventure in the best sense, silly, light on character, but full of twists and gags, and relentlessly forward moving.
Allen’s rough, kinetic artwork suits A Home for Mr. Easter’s over-the-top narrative, bouncing quickly from panel to panel without taking time to noodle over unnecessary details. It’s fast and absurd, and a terrifically fun ride.
