Overview

Ranklechick was a child Ghoul who lived in the depths of space.

From voice actor (GIR from Invader ZIM) and graphic novelist (ShutterBox and Super Information Hijinks: Reality Check!) Rosearik Rikki Simons and illustrator Tavisha (also ShutterBox and SIH: Reality Check!) comes a bit of absurdist baroque punk comic melancholia in the form of Ranklechick and His Three-Legged Cat! Oogaly-glee.
Obsessed with contacting the ghost of his brain-dead mother, Ranklechick invents an absurd collection of devices, like his Bliss Extractor, which he uses to try to get an autograph from the ghost of Charles Dickens, or his Sphere of Belligerence, a spacecraft propulsion system that literally insults physics.
Life ticks on at a lunatic pace as poor Ranklechick flees from handshaking lessons, avoids being made into candy by the evil android, Nathan Burblepinch, gets repeatedly decapitated, suffers the company of oniomaniac children, suicidal brains, ham, and a grumpy three-legged cat for a best friend ... and all the while he fights the unseen power that continues to make him believe he is becoming a comic book character ... .

Editorial Reviews

Jhonen Vasquez
Rikki Simons is a monstrous creature, with arms and a head, and legs as well. This book exists as proof of all these nightmarish qualities for which this horrible man is known. Having been beaten by Rikki himself into reading this, his latest masterpiece of … something, I can honestly say that I suspect that Simons may very well also have a brain.

-Jhonen Vasquez, creator of Squee!, I Feel Sick, and Invader ZIM

Intelligent humor. Just brilliant sci-fi/fantasy. My only complaint is that the fantastic artwork isn't formatted quite right to show on my Nook Tablet screen. The bottom gets cut off. Will definitely recommend. Awesome!
