HOT DAMN this is exciting. TCAF is an amazing show, and I’m so happy to be debuting the new book there. I will be on hand to personalize copies. Let me lay some smooth bullet points on this book for you.

  • Dark Horse published it! Awesome!
  • This is the VERY FIRST full color Dr. McNinja book! It contains Monster Mart, Death Volley, and Doc Gets Rad.
  • It features a comic introduction by the amazing Kate Beaton.
  • There is a PRINT EXCLUSIVE ALL NEW 22-page comic by Benito Cereno and Les McClaine. It’s fantastic. I’ve been sitting on it for a year. I can’t wait for you all to read it.

Here is the official Dark Horse solicitation.

What’s better than an evil unicorn motorcycle, monster gang wars, a tennis match against a god of destruction, and banditos on velociraptors—in full color?

…Yeah, we couldn’t think of anything, either.

Award-winning cartoonist Chris Hastings teams up with Dark Horse Books to bring you 232 pages of pure awesome, collecting the first three full-color story arcs of Dr. McNinja, as well as an exclusive-to-print story by Benito Cereno and Les McClaine.

“…almost too awesome for one comic.” -i09

“…a Venture Brothers-like orgy of genre cool, a collage of epic stories that manage to both parody and lovingly exploit the sci-fi fan’s favorite clichés and devices.” -i09

“…comedic genius…” -Comics Alliance

“Seriously the most awesome thing I have ever read.” -Chris Sims (Chris’s Invincible Super-Blog)


Finally, good news for you not going to TCAF. The book is being released EARLY. It’s coming out just DAYS LATER, on May 11th. Info on where you can buy it, as well as info on personalized copies will be posted the Monday beforehand.

Oh boy!
