Go, Read: Post on Suicide Rabbit

imageThe Washington Post has a profile up of a feature called Suicide Rabbit, apparently popular with comics readers in China. You don't see these "captures the spirit of the times" articles about too many comic strip, and even fewer about on-line strips, so I found that sort of interesting. Also, the fact that the character kind of gently lampoons the abuses of capitalism by having its lead suffer through many travails is an approach I don't think would work in most Western countries, not anymore, anyway.
