Summary
"Rick Rouse is a US Army deserter who, after running away to China, gets a job at Fengxian Amusement Park--a family destination heavily "inspired" by Western culture, featuring Rambi (the deer with a red headband), Ratman (the caped crusader with a rat's tail), Bumbo (small ears and a big behind), and dozens of other original characters. The park's general manager is convinced that Rick was destined to greet Fengxian customers, dressed as none other than Ricky Rouse. This original graphic novel is a relentless action comedy, a satire of US-China relations, a parody of Western entertainment, and a curious look at China--a country that, once we look past its often outrageous copyright infringements, is a culture ripe with innovation and a unique, courageous spirit."--
Summary
After deserting the US Army, Ricky Rouse finds himself in China, employed at Fengxian Amuesement Park, which draws heavily on Western culture for inspiration, when American terrorists take the park hostage
