Sheep are a much maligned creature. like lambs to the slaughter, Follow like sheep, a sheep shot JFK Folk lore such as this displays the bigotry against them that is inherant in western society. With sheep being our de facto national icon it is only to be expected that a New Zealand comic creator would try top present a sheep as a positive role model.

Non of this explains Ninja Sheep He cusses, drinks, hangs out the devil and chops people in half, all the while showing complete disregard for non-smoking zones. It's all very derivative of every other martial arts super violence comic, but it is still very funny in a blood splattered kind of way and the artwork is better than what is usually to be expected from this sort of thing.

The group of creators involved all have a go at chroniclling Ninja Sheep's adventures as well as working on a few other short strips.

In a Word: Sharp.
