Goodreads Synopsis: 
What do you get when you throw an incessantly optimistic bunny into a dark, antagonistic world? The twisted and side-splitting hilarity of Buni!

Always positive, Buni doesn’t understand that the cute world he lives in is usually out to get him. The girl he loves loves someone else. And his best intentions never seem to work. Yet he wakes up each day hopeful.

Together with his cynical dad and determined dog, he inhabits a surreal world populated by teddy bears, cupcakes, unicorns, and zombies.

With few words, these comics rely on images to tell the story, which is often twisted, sad and funny all at the same time. But more than anything, they show that nothing will keep Buni down. Because true happiness is a state of mind.
The cover of this book pulled me in and I am so glad it did. This graphic novel is a collection of comics featuring a bunny named Buni. There are no words, it is just images and it is hilarious. I was laughing out loud and sharing recaps with my husband about it. The humor of this book is very twisted and sometimes overly dark and sad but it is that punch that you sometimes need. Buni is SO optimistic that you feel for him even if you just starting reading his comics.  

I really loved this one and would happily own it and laugh along with it again and again. It is for an adult reader though - so keep that in mind.
