The Bearded Bunny Vote

I've never seen a potential new web comic creator do market research by polling people on what concept he should do. William Hessian, a professional artist and skilled writer, is thinking about a web comic project, and he's dreamed up eight possible themes.

You can review his work and read the themes on his blog, Bearded Bunny.  For those of you who know a thing or two about comics, consider which ideas will, in your opinion, stand the best chance of gaining an audience, and cast your vote.

I chose "Orvil's Basement," because the claustrophobia seems full of dramatic potential and reminds me of a scary episode from my own childhood. From a commercial view, it sums up very clearly, making it easy to capture the imagination of potential readers. With horror themes dominated by vampires, werewolves and zombies, this one sounds fresh.
