All Hallows Eve is approaching, and nobody wants to be caught last minute without a Halloween costume – not even the funny comic characters Pixie and Brutus. From the creative mind of Minnesota-based cartoonist, Ben Hed comes a new Halloween themed comic strip of the quirky duo.
Led by Pixie, who Hed described to Bored Panda as “a tiny, joyful, energetic kitty cat,” the unlikely pair hunt for best friend costumes for the spooky holiday. Brutus, the large, scar-faced German Shepherd, begrudgingly indulges the cute cat, as per usual, and the result is a hilarious fashion show of coordinating ensembles.
The animal character’s popularity was something Hed never planned, “Honestly, Pixie and Brutus were just another random comic idea I had while at work. I was never planning on making them a series; I just thought it would be a funny idea to introduce a cute little kitten to a big intimidating war dog who then forms an unlikely animal friendship. So I made the first Pixie and Brutus comic, and people liked it so much I just kept making them.”
