I received this back when we were working under a different name and I thought it so ridiculous that I never gave it another look, but since I’ve been having trouble finding anything to review I pulled it out of hiding. Good thing I didn’t throw it away. This comic makes so much fun of karate that by the end you think you’ve just seen “Enter the Dragon” sixty odd times. This comic is so simple that this is what makes it funny. It has that Sunday comic strip flare where every page is a one shot deal. And there is basically nothing but karate guys in text book poses telling each other about their techniques and how they’re going to kick each others ass. The top student is Karate Snoopy who kicks everyone’s ass. Then there’s Normal Man, See-Through Motherfucker, The Fingerprint Fighters and The Circulatory System. All these guys talk how they’re going to beat each other up and send one another to the hospital. After twenty pages this makes you a little giggly. You feel like you can actually hear the bad dubbing. Then, right in the middle, the author puts in one page that has absolutely nothing to do with karate, fighting, or anything else. It has this guy screaming for his straw hat because he’s going on a big date. The other guy, smartly called Gary, tells him to come to his room to see what he’s done with it, and in the last frame we see the guy with a chimney of bricks on his head with the subtitle stating “A lesson from the three little pigs.” I’ve got to tell you, if you remember the guys in high school that were taking karate, kung fu, or ping pong and remember how frickin’ stupid they sounded when discussing their macho misadventures, you’re going to laugh, cry, and reminisce about those jerks and about how their lives have been captured in the pages of a comic book. The only way, I guess, you can get this is from this guy’s website, so here it is. (davidrees[at]mail[dot]com)
