Earth has survived repeated alien invasions, attacks by
hordes of mutants, and the ravages of ancient beasts brought
back to life. Now we're in the blissful future . . . for
most. J!m, the son of the alien who nearly destroyed the
planet, is a brooding, megacephalic rebel with a big
forehead and exceptionally oily skin. Along with Johnny, a
radioactive biker ape, and Jelly, a gelatinous mass passing
as a fat kid, J!m navigates a particularly unpleasant
adolescence in which he really is as alienated as he feels,
the world might actually be out to get him, and true love is
complicated by misunderstanding and incompatible parts. As
harmless school antics escalate into explosive events with
tragic consequences, J!m makes a discovery that will alter
the course of civilization, and may help his dating life.
Replete with all the rock 'n' roll, hot-rod racing, and
heavy petting of classic teen cinema--and packed with famous
film-monster cameos--Go, Mutants! is fun strapped to
an atomic rocket, and Larry Doyle's deadpan delivery and
razor-sharp wit will have you laughing out loud before he
even starts the ignition sequence.
