About the Book
"I had so much fun reading La Cucaracha. Each story in this collection has the scope of a summer blockbuster, but the satirical focus and hilarious minutiae of the best Futurama episodes. Michael effortlessly glides between suspense and slapstick, and his vivid imagery is perfectly complemented by Kevin Budnik's delightful illustrations. This debut truly has everything: Dinosaurs, Zombies, Justice-Seeking-Twinkies, an Apocalyptic Segwayman, a joke about Damien Rice. What more could you want?! Don't answer that."
This book contains the stories, Explosive Tantrums and Birthday Fiascos, La Blancocabra; Posthumous Remarks From A Live Man; The Ways To Make Gemütlichkeit, or: Foodie and the Beast; SuperMarkt; Harrison's Interesting Adventure; Pearl Harbor 2: Pearl Harborer!; and lastly the self-titled story, La Cucaracha: Origins.
