Why I read Dr. McNinja, and why you should too
Dr. McNinja is, to put it simply, fun. The webcomic has a simple premise: Dr. McNinja is a doctor who is also a ninja. However, this premise is supported by hilarious writing, entertaining visuals, and a colorful cast of characters, both temporary and recurring. Despite the often ridiculous nature of the situations that befall the protagonists, the comic manages to balance the characters and the scenarios expertly. Elements such as raptor-riding banditos, the flamboyant King Radical, and apocalypse machines that like to play tennis present credible threats to the heroes without sacrificing their whimsical natures, and manage to be both silly and serious at the same time.
Dr. McNinja updates three times a week and has been running since 2010. The comic is separated into a number of issues, which usually either fall between 60-110 pages or less than 10 (for between-arc filler issues), excusing some outliers. Story arcs are (mostly) contained within their own issues, although characters or story elements from one issue can (and often do) show up in another. Most pages have an amusing alt-text message associated with them (hover your mouse over the image).
