He’s a Doctor. Who’s Also a Ninja: The Dr. McNinja Omnibus is here.


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.

mcninja chickenYes. He’s high-fiving a roast chicken. 

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.

Pick up the book when it hits shelves next week. And then, go hit the website. And if you’re so inclined, check out the beta version of the video game. Until then, enjoy a sneak peek:
