Dr. McNinja and the Monster

The latest Dr. McNinja story may be the best one yet. I love the wacky weirdness of this long-format webcomic. We're talking about a guy who was born a ninja, but felt that being a doctor was his calling -- despite the opposition of his family. And he has a gorilla for a receptionist.

The latest story concerns the arrival of a fellow who was part of a superteam the doctor joined when he was in college. This fellow's power is to turn into a big purple monster. Maybe he'll eat people. He has a dad who references a certain famous disabled scientist. Their relationship is painful and hilarious. The comic plays with emotions in a powerful way, no matter how silly it may sound. Check it out.
