Comic Book Cats, number 18: The Ren & Stimpy Show #9

Comic Book Cats, number 18: The Ren & Stimpy Show #9, drawn by Ken Mitchroney, written by Dan Slott, lettered by Brad K. Joyce, colored by Ed Lazellari and cover artwork by Mike Kazaleh, published by Marvel Comics in August 1993.
For those such as myself who could not get enough of The Ren & Stimpy Show, the bizarre and irreverent animated series that aired on Nickelodeon in the early 1990s, there was the monthly comic book published by Marvel Comics. Initially drawn by alternating artists Mike Kazaleh and Ken Mitchroney, with early writing from Dan Slott, the comic book successfully captured the flavor of the animated series. It featured some genuinely funny and weird stories. The Ren & Stimpy Show comic book ran for 44 issues, in addition to several Specials.
“Wakka Makka Hoek, Mekka Stimpy Ho” sees a shipwrecked Ren Hoek the Chihuahua and Stimpy the cat making landfall on a tropical island. Ren is horrified that the island natives immediately begin worshiping the dimwitted Stimpy. Determined to slap some sense into his feline companion, Ren creeps into Stimpy’s temple domicile… and the story quickly becomes a parody of Apocalypse Now. Joseph Conrad is rolling over in his grave.
