Ain’t It Cool News reviews Eben07 print offerings!on September 1, 2010 at 1:07 am
Optimus Douche of Ain’t It Cool News reviewed the trio of our comic offerings on September 1! And he has some real choice words about the books & comics – here are some highlights:
Plus, the art and humor contained within the pages of Eben would make Scott Adams green with envy. Seriously, if some upstart cable channel is looking for a cartoon property to dispel to the masses, look at the success of “Archer” and ride that wave by signing Eben.

the hilarity in this (Operation: 3-Ring Bound) is delivered in spades as Eben and Ninja Dan are sent back to High School a la “21 JUMP STREET” to uncover the disappearance of operatives that were disguised as janitors. Seriously, this is a fucking funny book as these two thirty-somethings try to blend into today’s high school environments. My particular favorite moment was when the guys loaded up their iPod with the hottest rock tunes from the likes of Nirvana and STP…sadly those tunes are now officially in the realm of classic rock.

my favorite adventure to date is hands down “Operation: Mongoose.” And there is nary an Eben to be found. No, this adventure is a prequel that explores the start of the ICA under Eben’s ancestor Abel. At the crux of Mongoose are shadow puppet organizations that have been orchestrating world events from Castro to the assassination of Lincoln. I can’t help it; I’m a sucker for alternate history.

Well drawn, expertly written and never taking itself too seriously, Eben07 is a damn fun work timewaster and an even better read in print.
