    Ratfist was a Web Series by Doug TenNapel taken offline and printed in
    one handy graphic novel by Image comics. I got my copy through the
    amazon link on and read it in one sitting. Now that
    may not be impressive at 158 pages but Ratfist having to drive the
    daily online readership and still deliver a compelling story arc
    impressed me. The humor is good and the story is well written but
    sometimes it felt dated suffering from Mystery Science Theater
    syndrome. Just to cut that statement I love MST3k and enjoyed Mike
    Nelson’s forward. In fact it was that and Doug TenNapel’s Earthworm
    Jim that attracted me to this book. Normally I would say this baited
    me in but this title surprises and let me off the hook. It stands
    alone and those with at least a couple decades on them will enjoy this
    one. I leave the spoilers to the guys but I give Ratfist 4 outta 5.
