For those of you who aren’t familiar with Dr. McNinja, the hilarious webcomic by Christopher Hastings, let me give you an idea of what you’re in for.
Dr. McNinja is a doctor – a real, medical doctor, with patients and everything. He’s also a ninja, raised by a family of ninjas, and is somewhat of a disgrace to his ninja parents for not following their path and becoming a full-fledged ninja in his own right. And now, Dark Horse has the earliest issues of Dr. McNinja here, in this 500+ page omnibus. If you haven’t been introduced to the good doctor yet, this is a great place to start.
The strip is story-driven, with several major storylines featured in the Omnibus. The humor is outrageous and laugh-out-loud funny. Some of my favorite moments take place when McNinja’s parents – and Ben Franklin, his mentor! – show up on the scene.
