Just Imagine's Special Kung-Fu Gophers (1986) comic books
Story by George Macas. Art by Jim Molina and Jill Thompson. Cover by Phil Foglio. Sometimes listed as Just Imagines Special #1 or Mildly Microwaved Pre-Pubescent Kung-Fu Gophers #1. One of the many martial-arts funny-animal comics that appeared in the wake of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles success, and nearly broke the comics industry. The Mildly Microwaved Pre-Pubescent Kung-Fu Gophers are created in a microwave oven explosion and taught martial arts by Kung Fu TV star David Carradine (or a reasonable facsimile). Featuring a cover by Phil Foglio, and the first published work by future superstar artist Jill Thompson of Sandman and Scary Godmother fame (although she may not want to admit that). 32 pages, B&W. Cover price $1.50.
