Goodbye Rubbit Comics Review

Stories with cute cartoony characters are just for kids, right?… And they can’t teach you life lessons, right?…

Wrong! If you’ve read Goodbye Rubbit by RH Quilantang, you know there are those kinds of stories out there that aren’t exclusively kiddie stuff.

As the cover tells us, this comic book is also subtitled as “A Simple Story About Moving On” and that, along with the actual title, pretty much gives you a hint what this comicbook is all about.

For me, the beauty of the story is that what you get from it depends on what you bring when you start reading. The tree stump is something symbolic and could mean many things. On top of that, you will surely see yourself and relate with the story’s main character, which is Rubbit himself.

I really loved the line that said “I love walking… because I know I’m going somewhere”. That simply hits home and  sums up the whole point for me.

Of course, I wouldn’t want to end up spoiling more for you about this so just in case you haven’t read this yet, you better look for it during comic conventions. Suffice it to say that storywise and artwise, Goodbye Rubbit is a very unique book. Any reader, young and old, can enjoy it much. It takes a few minutes to read but the message can stay with you for a long time.

    I like it. :p And you’re right about the tree stump. It could really mean many things plus it depends on the person reading it. I love the question “Why leave the comforts of your tree stump Rubbit?” because sitting in that tree stump can be really tiring, right?

    Not a big fan of comics but I agree that this one can relate to a wide range of readers. :) Plus, this book is the kind that made me smile in the end. :)

    @ Mela, Im glad you liked the comics as much as I did. For more Rubbit stories, you may check out Porkypine Rood and the upcoming Relating Ships. I’ll let you know when they’re available at the comic conventions already! :)
