Again in November, I shared a Kickstarter for Aubrey Sitterson‘s “Leftist Himbo” comedian e-book Beef Bros (which I simply acquired my copy of!). Now Sitterson is again with a brand new comedian challenge he describes as “Kung Fu Hustle meets Pineapple Specific. Or Drunken Grasp meets Cheech & Chong for the previous heads!”
Enter: STONED MASTER.
Stoned Grasp is ready within the fictional Los Angeles neighborhood of Chavez Heights, the place a rapacious conglomerate is corporatizing and gentrifying all the things in sight. And the one ones standing of their manner? Burnout kung fu savant Frankie Wong, his drunken grasp, and his buddies from the native hashish dispensary.
Think about Kung Fu Hustle meets Pineapple Specific. Or, for the previous heads, Drunken Grasp meets Cheech & Chong. It is all the extreme, clever struggle scenes you anticipate from a martial arts epic, mixed with gut-busting stoner comedy laughs, then totally baked within the Southern California solar.
Stoned Grasp is co-created and illustrated by Chris Moreno, who’s additionally labored as an animator on Muppet Infants and Xiaolin Chronicles (and brings the same cartoon-ish aesthetic to Stoned Grasp). Moreno and Sitterson beforehand collaborated on The Comic Book Story of Professional Wrestling: A Hardcore, High-Flying, No-Holds-Barred History of the One True Sport — and if there’s any consistency all through Sitterson’s work, it’s that gleeful kayfabe kinetic of a dedicated wrestling fan, even when he is trolling the military industrial complex with GI Joe.
Kickstarter rewards embrace not solely digital and print copies of Stoned Grasp #1, but in addition plenty of good vibes delivered in multiples of 420. Good.
