Aw Yeah, Gun Fu's Howard Shum Is Back
And Fat Boy & Harvey Can Never Be Wack

Gun Fu came blasting on the comic scene with twin barrels blazing, slow-motion spin kicks to the head, and some of the most laugh-out-loud dialogue the industry has to offer. Drawn by the dynamic Joey Mason (who is currently burning up the mini-comic scene with The Mighty Offenders from Young American Comics) and scripted by funnyman supreme Howard Shum, Gun Fu remains a favorite among Isotope staff and patrons. So when our in-box lit up with preview pages of Mister Shum's latest offering the Isotope sat up and paid attention.

Fat Boy & Harvey is the story of Harvey, a down and out artist trying to survive living in LA, and Fat Boy, his kung-fu loving cousin from Hong Kong. When Harvey and Fat Boy get a job working security for Fred Durst from Limp Bizkit they are thrown into a world of loose groupies, coked-out agents, and sleazy Hollywood types.

Check out an Isotope Comminuque exclusive 11 page PDF preview of Fat Boy & Harvey here.
