Created in January 2002 and first published in 2004, Shonen Punk is the first comic by Andrew Pinkard. So, what is Shonen Punk?
Shonen punk follows Chiitsu Pinkada and his zany punk rock family the Shonen Punks- group filled with fembots, slackers, perverts, drunks and a catgirl. As they try to get through life in a world filled with mechas, evil exes, secret organizations, revenge crazed whack-jobs and other amazing would-be villians and sociopaths.
If you’ve grown bored of generic “manga”and scoff-able “manga-ka”, then Shonen Punk is the comic book series for you. Shonen Punk never forgets that it’s not japanese made, in fact it rapes a lot of Anime and manga tropes early on. It rarely takes it self too serious and always puts the fun, the adventure, and the lulz back into today’s comics.
Join up with the wild and crazy members of Shonen Punk, and let’s show the world that angst does not alone equal depth and fun doesn’t have to be sensible.
It’s separated into chapters/volumes, and since it’s more character driven it is suggested that new readers start at the beginning. to at least familiarize yourself with this crazy world
Shonen Punk is rated R for adult situations, profanity, nudity and violence and light gore. You know, all that good stuff!
The setting of the comic is in a fictional version of Los Angeles. A world slightly more technologically advanced than our own. There’s not too many differneces from our own aside from the usual fictional comic fare.
Andeh is a native Southern Californian and still lives ‘the good life provided by punk’ in Whittier, Ca (though, he is originally from La Puente, which is the city in outer l.a for you non-Californian jive turkeys). The only things he likes are booze, punk rock, boobs, sci-fi, fantasy, movies, cartoons, anime, and a certain southern ninjar.
