    Default Dr. McNinja IV: What The Chuck?

    As we were saying...


    Latest Comic: http://drmcninja.com/


    The nation of Atlantis? What the Chuck indeed.

    Robots? Those aren't robots, they're actual mermaids using technological mobility enhancers that include sustaining fluids.

    What the Chuck indeed. I most certainly didn't expect to see this.

    The more I read Dr McNinja, the more I think that, in another life, Chris would have been an awesome cryptic crossword maker.

    I can't do cryptics. I love them, but my mind just doesn't work that way. What I really really love is getting the answers and then working out what the clue meant and then going "Oh yeah, clever"

    Here, I like to imagine the convoluted thought processes that I am quite certain went on to end up with this comic scenario.

    It goes something like this:

    Christopher: I need a new idea. Something that hasn't been done before?
    Christopher: Talking robots?
    Christopher: Meh
    Christopher: Frankenstein
    Christopher: Do you even read what I do? I just did that with the Judy story, idiot.
    Christopher: Ghouls, zombies, wild rampaging elephants, pixies, mermen.... You haven't done mermen. Mermen is seriously underdone. What is there? Aquaman? We need cooler mermen
    Christopher: The problem with mermen, idiot. They are stuck in water.
    Christopher: Yeah, but.... What if they had these water bubbles around their heads? Then they could move on land
    Christopher: They've got TAILS. Sheesh, it's like talking to a 2 year old.
    Chrisopher: Jetpacks.
    Christopher: What?
    Christopher: Mermen with water bubbles and jetpacks.
    Christopher: Hmmmm... But couldn't you just pop the water bubbles?
    Christopher: Yeah, but that would make the McNinja's cocky. They'd forget to be careful, too busy gloating.
    Christopher: Yeah, I can work with that. But I'd better make it a flashback story. The Doc would never be that silly.
    Christopher: You DO read the stuff I write, right?
    Christopher: Yes, I do, now shutup. I've got cool mermen jetpacks to draw.

    Depending on how snug that thing is around the waist, it probably has room to swivel around, which it probably needs to be able to do given the lack of obvious control surfaces.

    So, I went back and I noticed that the wing that is on panel 3 is upside down (consistent with rotating). That's brilliant.

    And so we learn that being a contemptible person runs in the family. I begin to wonder, how Sean will turn up, when he'll become an adult.

    This question may be about a year overdue, but how does Dr McNinja have blonde eyebrows when both his parents have black eyebrows? I thought it was a recessive trait. I mean I can see how his dad might be a carrier being Irish but what's Mitsy's nationality?

    That's how recessive traits work, if both of them are Xx then they can make an xx baby. If they both had blonde eyebrows they couldn't have a black eyebrow baby. I don't see why it's surprising.

    Unless you mean black eyebrows are recessive, in which case I am surprised by that fact and have no explanation for you.

    Blonde is recessive. Meaning both parents could be carriers. I myself have light colored hair while my parents both had dark hair. My brother is the same way. We both have enough of our father's characteristics that my parentage is not in question.

    And I think this arc might be also considered the origin story of Sean McNinja, if you know, what I mean.

    It seems an odd coincidence for Mitsy to be a carrier. If anything I'd assume she's full blooded Japanese or other Asian. We do know she's not from Ireland, or at least had nothing to do with the McNinja tree before marrying one. I forget the rest.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adv...#Mitzi_McNinja

    According to Wikipedia she is Jewish and was born in America (I don't recall that from the comic though).

    More damningly, we literally have a ninja gene being passed from generation to generation, and you're questioning the hereditary properties of blonde hair in the comic?

    I feel like Dr Mcninja will have no regrets killing this guy even though he isn't a warlord: Because he used comic sans shamelessly.

    He is like 10. That was before it was even a thing.

    I have a feeling this arc will be about how badly this Burned Doc to stay away from this.

    Comic Sans was released in 1994, but that was as a raster typeface not remotely suitable for that side of printing. I can't find any information on when it was rendered as a vector, but probably not until 1997 (for Windows 98). Do we know how old the Doc is?
