I apologize to my readers who aren’t nerdy enough to get this joke.
This comic has actually been in the works for quite a while. My friend, Mike had the idea of “Manny” being saved from a mugger way back when I first started this project, but I couldn’t figure out how to make the joke work in a way that satisfied me. I considered using angels, ninja, and even Ninja Turtles, but then I saw Marvel’s newest show on Netflix back in April and things finally clicked into place.
Or maybe they didn’t, at least not for folks who don’t know relatively obscure (at least until recently) superheroes.
Regardless, thanks for looking! And remember, Google is your friend.
