Math classes have the potential to be so much more interesting. I mean, how boring is it talking about how many apples Frank has left after giving Sally 3? Where's the fun in that? See, I want real world applications. Like take the following equation. What do you get when you add Bob, a man that knows his way around the ranch and has a proclivity for shootouts, Jeff, a man that runs on rooftops while silently assassinating his targets, and Olaf, a Viking? You have either the anachronistic start to an angry mob or a new comic from Image called Cowboy Ninja Viking #1. Cowboy Ninja Viking #1 is the brainchild of writer AJ Lieberman and artist Riley Rossmo. Dr. Sebastian Ghislain is a rogue psychotherapist/covert op/DJ faced with the unenviable task of creating a counter-intelligence unit that doesn't feature Jack Bauer. The logical landing point are "Triplets," or agents with Multiple Personality Disorder. Someone has united the Triplets into a group of assassins, leaving the task to another Triplet known as Cowboy Ninja Viking. Check it out this week when the first issue hits stores. I swear I'm not making this stuff up. And no, the names indicated above are the names to the different facets of the personality. Although AJ, if you're reading, I have no problem with you using them. Enjoy! New Arrivals: October 21, 2009
