Bunny is a daily webcomic by Lem (b. 1984-03-20), the pseudonym of a Welsh artist named Huw Davies. Launched in August 2004, Bunny follows the gag-a-day formula, with no true plotline. The subject matter of Bunny varies widely (with topics ranging from popular Internet culture, to current events to rabbit ninjas), but usually portrays the pink bunny protagonist's uncomplicated take on a given situation. Starting with Strip #862 on 2007-03-31 the comic changed from its long rectangular format to a taller and narrower horizontal rectangular format. The shape of the panels currently vary.
Starting on 2007-12-24 with strip #1067, tooltip (better known as title text) became a part of most comics.
Despite the overall randomness of the strips, Bunny often involves things which may be deemed as relevant and informative. Indeed, one of the things the strip does is point out inaccuracies, irony, and hypocrisy in certain events and figures.
During the 2007 Greek forest fires, the strip "black observational humour perchance" was created, in which the orange Bunny points out the irony between the event and the recent Olympic torch lighting for the 2004 Summer Olympics, which was held in Athens. The strip was accompanied with multiple apologies for the black humor, and condolences to any losses.
The strip "perhaps someone left on the taps" points out the difference between terrorism in the United Kingdom, and the tax adjustments following it, and the same for the 2007 United Kingdom floods, questioning the definition of the "largest threat to society".
The Bunny book contains ninety completely redrawn strips exclusively for the print version. The book was published in August 2006, with orders filled two months later. The book is published by Freak Ash Books, and distributed both by them and Lem (Huw Davies) himself. The second Bunny book, The Book of Perpetual Bewilderment was published in December 2007 by Freak Ash Books.
