Meet Timmy McAllister. a normal kid who lives in the 100% pure vanilla town of Cherry Creek, Indiana (pop. 23,745) where everyone and everything is . . . normal. Normal, until the day Timmy orders his very own ninja! As a little kid, who needs imaginary friends or even man¿s best friend, when you can have your very own Ninja? Timmy and the town of Cherry Creek will never be the same... That¿s the basic premise of 'Mail Order Ninja', which, btw, is 96 pgs of B&W goodness and is the brainchild of myself and artist Erich Owen. It¿s a fun, quirky all-ages comedy with plenty of action guaranteed to keep even the most ADD-addled youngster riveted. Now when I say ¿all-ages comedy,¿ I mean all-ages comedy. It¿s (I hope) like the classic Looney Tunes cartoons... I loved ¿What¿s Opera, Doc?¿ when I was a kid because Bugs dressed as a girl and sang all funny. Then when I got older I suddenly realized how clever the whole thing was with all the Wagner riffs and what-not. Plus Bugs was dressed as a girl and sang all funny. And that¿s hilarious no matter how old you are. Anyway, the current plan is for MON to run six volumes. And in those six volumes Timmy and his ninja companion Jiro of the Clan Yoshida will battle evil ninja lawyers, evil ninja accountants, Santa Claus and the French toy designer, international arms dealer and conceptual artist Jacques de Jacques. Like I said: quirky.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
