    I got a tokyopop tryout book at free comics day last time and never read it untail now.

    One story is called "mail order ninja" about a kid who buys a ninja bodyguard from a comic.

    In the book the ninja is fighting another ninja. The whole scene is a spoof of the prime vs megs fight from the movie!

    They even had the same words that they say in the movie.

    "one shall stand, one shall fall!"

    The rest of the story stunk but i got a kick out of the spoof.

    Just wanted to let you guys know about it.

    I posted a topic about Mail Order Ninja in the comics section about six months ago and didn't get much response. It's a good manga. I have the first volume. Volume two is also out as well. I think it's supposed to be 3 volumes. It's also become a syndicated strip in some newspapers as of January 2007 I think.

    To find out more about it and read the first two chapters free (which includes the TF movie parody) try this link:

    The initial post says what the title is, the word is "Manga", and it's a spoof/tribute. it's not like they're ripping it off.

    Even the first page is a rip of TF movie, they just replace Decepticons for "White Dragon Clan". Where is Hasbro with the law suit ??

    Edit: Valysas: It was a joke. Chill out and take your own advice, Lighten up
