In the biblical sense, we are dead on. Here are two of the biggest asses in comic books. If there are others we’ve missed, let us know.
Donkey from Shrek
Why he is a big ass: Oh, Lord Vishnu! Finally, an actual ass in comics. And not just any old ass – a SMART ASS too!
Why he is a big ass: Well, big is stretching it, but he’s an ass because … well … like Donkey, Eeyore really is an ass! That is, in the Bible-sanctioned definition of the word. As for being an ass in comics, we thought that we were stretching it but we subsequently remembered that Winnie the Pooh comics were published by Whitman and others in large volumes back in the 1960s/1970s. So Eeyore counts.
We have a soft spot for Eeyore. His clinical depression is no laughing matter.
