This book right here was given to me from a great friend and I gotta say it delivers a very unique experience. This story feels like it could make for a great cartoon series on Cartoon Network.

Really retro but fully futuristic, Sci-Fu is a fun rap battle graphic novel. Wax's mix skills accidentally get him in a duel with rapping kung fu robot aliens.
