The Kickpuncher wiki last edited by Renchamp on 06/16/14 02:55PM View full history

A study group is interrupted by Snake Men, who kidnap some members. Troy and Abed team up with Kickpuncher to get the classmates back.

Synopsis

A study group begins their session when the Snake Men attack. Jeff, Pierce, and Shirley are instantly zapped into oblivion leaving Britta, Annie, Abed, and Troy. The Snake Men kidnap Britta and Annie but oddly leave Troy and Abed in the study room. Without delay, Abed states that Kickpuncher should be called in to help recover the remaining friends. In Dean Pelton's office, a red button is pushed and Kickpuncher arrives, a cyborg with the ability to punch as hard as a kick. Because of Troy's super intelligence, the men figure that the Snake Men are hiding in Egypt.

As the team of Troy, Abed, and Kickpuncher fly to Cairo, the Snake Men tell their captives that the girls are needed because the Snake Men are nonsexual and need baby vessels. At this point, Kickpuncher busts in and dispatches each enemy with the greatest of ease. After the Snake Men are vanquished, Annie and Britta announce their new-found love for each other and propose the four friends live in the pyramids in Cairo. Kickpuncher leaves to aid justice elsewhere.

Note: The Kickpuncher character was originally introduced in the NBC show "Community." Troy Barnes is given credit for writing the comic, but he is simply a character from the TV show. He says in the introduction that the characters in the comic are influenced by his friends from the college (or from TV).

This is not a great stand-alone comic. That does not matter. The art in Kickpuncher is fantastic. Jim Mahfood has this odd beauty to his illustration. The characters are very one dimensional, but since the book was included with the first season of "Community," the NBC show upon which the comic is based, knowing more about characters is a breeze. Yes, they are fake characters based on already fake characters. The comic perfectly mirrors how the story should be told when the reader considers that...
