George W. Bush and Rambo Team Up in Jim Rugg’s ‘Rambo 3.5′

Comics readers are probably most familiar with Jim Rugg for his work with Brian Maruca on “Street Angel” (the story of a 13 year-old homeless girl who beats up ninjas with her skateboard) and “Afrodisiac” (a blaxploitation spin-off), or as the artist of Dark Horse’s “The Guild,” but even die-hard fans may have missed his Ignatz award-nominated mini-comic, “Rambo 3.5.”

If you’re one of the unlucky ones who did, though, don’t fret: Today, Rugg has put the entire comic, which “Scott Pilgrim” creator Bryan Lee O’Malley has referred to as “brilliant,” up on his Flickr page for your absolutely free viewing enjoyment. Just keep in mind that, as you can probably tell from the image above, there’s some pretty NSFW language in there — especially if you work somewhere that hates America.I picked up a copy for myself when I saw Rugg this year at HeroesCon, and I can assure you, it’s an awesomely bizarre stream-of-consciousness journey that goes from tying in the events of “Rambo II” in with the aftermath of 9/11 to President Bush’s penchant for nicknames to the effects of steroids to a gun that would make even Rob Liefeld go “hey, that’s a pretty big gun.” And if that doesn’t sell you on it, then maybe this picture of Rambo and W discussing their favorite kind of cheese will:
