Pet Hates is an A6 black and white comic zine about pet hates. Or rather, pets’ hates.
I’ve identified with a lot of zines over the years, but this is the first time I’ve identified with a zine on behalf of my dogs and cat. Haha. Definitely a first for me!
Pet Hates contains twelve comics – one per page with each one featuring a different pet with a different reason to be annoyed. From a camera shy bunny to a snake with dreams of shoes, each comic will make you feel sympathetic while chuckling at the same time.
Confetti’s art style is very cute (as the cover gives you a taste of) and that is also matched well by the font choice. The comics are detailed just enough to set the scene but not distract from the actual pets or their thoughts.
Pet Hates had me hooked straight away with the camera shy bunny. My lovely dogs really don’t like cameras of any sort. I love how Confetti features a different kind of pet each comic. Your ‘traditional’ pets hates would have been (and would still be) welcome, but the variety of pets kept me curious about what I would find in the next comic.
This is such a gorgeous little zine. I hope it’s the first of a series, and I hope you check it out.
