ChrusherComix (Chris’ Crusher Comics) were founded in 1988 in a high school study hall. Innocent, goofy, immature, and slapstick violence eventually morphed into somewhat more mature offerings, and into what is now the final chapter in the story – End Cycle. Enjoy!

ERA FOUR: 2007-up

For the fourth era of ChrusherComix, a mature, thrilling story is in store.

End Cycle – Part #1

A serial killer has been systematically slaughtering people all over the world. And although forensic artist/private detective Chace “Chrusher” Kristoph has been tracking the psychopath for over a decade, he may have unwittingly become a target. All the while haunted by a beautiful woman from his past. A globe-spanning thriller about crime, love, hatred, and revenge. This Graphic Novel is being debuted in serialized comic book format before released as a book. This is the Rated-R edition of the book. Go to the 1st page to begin reading!

End Cycle – Part #2

The End Cycle graphic novel continues as we meet a Senator Stephen Foule, the intriguing relationship he has with his beautiful assistant, and we learn more about the grizzly murder scene as Dr. Welker examines the corpse found in issue #1.

What you have read above is not all there is to tell. The author has twenty years of interrelated (but interdependent) comics that occur before that storyline. They are as follows…

ERA ONE: 1988-1994

Year One – Origins, 1st Appearances, and Freshman Follies

In 1988, an Oswego High School freshman named Chris Stevens decided to take his talent of drawing and entertain himself and his friends by drawing a sketchbook-with-a-storyline featuring character-driven comedy and violence. It became a hit. This whole website is devoted to the ongoing series that started as sketches on lined paper and evolved into the sophisticated professional artwork you see today. Enjoy!

In the late 1980s at an everyday high school in Oswegonia, a war is brewing between a band of nerds and misfits known as The Welforce, inept and corrupt school faculty, low-level criminal masterminds, and a band of teen quasi-vigilantes known as The Conquerors – led by a lad known as Chris Crusher – or Chrusher for short. Starting in 1988 when 14-year-old Christopher Galletta Stevens drew a comic book in high school study hall to entertain himself and his friends. The book continued ever since, and — after never seeing print and being in storage for two decades — has now finally seen publication! Read the exciting, humorous, and highly action-packed “sketchbook with a storyline” from the first crappily-done issues! The saga ends in the new interrelated — but not interdependent — “Chrusher: End Cycle” – which is also being printed simultaneously. Enjoy the unknown comic book which readers call the funniest ‘unknown’ comic they ever read!

Classic ChrusherComix #1 | Chrusher vs. Foule vs. Butski!

It is the year 1988, and two 14-year-old high school misfits and nerds — named Mike Butski and Ronald Foule — have a fight in the Oswegonian High School hallways, then drag Chris Crusher into their spat. This seemingly meaningless high school disagreement birthed a twenty year grudge match which spreads all the way to the “Chrusher: End Cycle” graphic novel. Witness the humble beginnings of the “ChrusherComix” universe and watch it grow from an amateur, silly serial in a high school notepad twenty years ago to a full-fledged comic book today. The complete collection begins with this issue, which is itself a collection of the first three mini-issues in normal comic book format. Enjoy! Story & art from 1988 by Christopher Galletta Stevens with 20th Anniversary cover from 2008.

Year Two:

#11 | The Rize of The RaYzor (Jumbo-Sized Issue)

Year Two bring Clouds of Darkness… a time most foreboding to the ChrusherComix Universe. As hulking monster punks calling themselves “The Mutant Mobsters” take over Oswegonian High, Chrusher has gained a small amount of attention and fame when his exploits as a justice-loving high school vigilante (and his good friend Aaron Terminator’s mysterious passing) get noticed in the high school newspaper and television station. Secondly, the attention has garnered him interest between three young ladies – classmates of his, and while one would think that the lustful affections of three well-developed teenage girls would be heavenly for teenage Chrusher, his shyness around pretty girls and the attention from jealous boyfriend rivals is anything but for our young hero. Meanwhile, Hitman “RaYzor” Cadildonian is in a race against time as he must try to stop Chris “Crasher” Chassis from telling Chrusher the truth – that RaYzor attempted to destroy Crasher to take his place in the Conquerors as Chrusher’s 2nd in command. He enlists David Scruanot to help. All while Chrusher’s little brother’s friends want to join in Chrusher’s Conquerors, and create super-hero secret identities to impress the older Conquerors. One of them, the  juvenile named Robbie “Roboman” Reegun, an immature 12-year-old boy – with an unhealthy obsession with evil masterminds in both human history and fiction – dressed up on a metal suit that dangerously emits lethal amounts of energy, and Chrusher is caught in an electric blast that leaves him incapacitated and believed dead. A will believed left by Chrusher instruct the remaining Conquerors to have a No Holds Barred/Mixed- Martial-Arts/Wrestling/Boxing battle royale at Fort Crusher to determine who will become the new leader. RaYzor cheats to win, and leads the Conquerors into battle against the Welforce. But are they too much for RaYzor’s abilities? [Story from 1989-90 by Christopher Galletta Stevens, but due to being lost/destroyed, the comic is reproduced with both surviving story & art from that year and additional retconned material from 2014-up.] Read it.

#12 | The Last DaYz of the Glare – Part 1 – Crusher is Gone?! RaYzor In Command?!

Chrusher is dead. Killed by the juvenile named, “Roboman” Reegun, an immature 12-year-old boy – with an unhealthy obsession with evil masterminds in both human history and fiction – dressed up on a metal suit that dangerously emits lethal amounts of energy. Instructions left by Chrusher deemed the remaining Conquerors to have a No Holds Barred/Mixed- Martial-Arts/Wrestling/Boxing battle royale at Fort Crusher to determine who will become the new leader. RaYzor cheats to win, and leads the Conquerors into battle against the Welforce and their new leader – Ian “The Brain” Babble, who disposed of prior leader David Scruanot and easily outsmarted Butski and Foule. But are they too much for RaYzor’s abilities? His massive ego takes a tremendous blow when the unthinkable happens. Story and art from 1990. Read it.

#13 | The Last DaYz Of The Glare: Part II – Welforce Triumphs

After being defeated by Welforce, in what would be the 1st ever defeat the Conquerors took vs. the gang of misfits, Commander RaYzor is gradually losing control of the Conquerors, and with it, his sanity and his hair. He also wasn’t prepared for the massive target placed on one’s back when becoming leader of the Conquerors… namely Chrusher’s arch enemies. *Cough* Obliterator… *cough* more murderous than ever… *cough* Story and art from 1990 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#14 | The Last DaYz Of The Glare: Part III – Crusher is Back… RaYzor Snaps.

Chrusher returns from his apparent death/coma and amnesiac episode (because that has never happened before in fiction, right?) to greet his comrade RaYzor, who watched over the Conquerors while he was gone. But something’s wrong. RaYzor has snapped – lost to Welforce, mutinied by the Conquerors, defeated by Obliterator AND Ron Foule, lost most of his luxurious hair, lost what little weight he had, and near suicide, has now turned homicidal, and turned fire on Chrusher upon his comeback! And he isn’t the only one with sights on his death! The saga FINALLY starts developing some of those seeds of the grander plot that have been carefully buried throughout the story thus far (and thusly, most people have all missed). Story and art from 1990 by Christopher Galletta Stevens. Enjoy!

#15 | The Last DaYz Of The Glare: Part IV – The Asylum with Guns n Poseurs

RaYzor has been incarecrated and instiutionalized. Apparently, the mad rise and fall that began in Welforce #1 has finally hit rock bottom. But RaYzor meets his role models – Guns n Roses – in the Asylum?! Wait… that’s not them. Looks like ’em… but not them. Will RaYzor be on the road of recovery? Or will he relapse? Find out. Story and art from 1990-91 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

Year Three

The 3rd season of Chris’ Crusher Comics (portmanteau is ChrusherComix) began a far more grittier storyline with somewhat more edgy artwork (and far more detail). The greatest growth in art quality is seen between the 1st and 3rd year of my comics, all seen here on this website. Even so, typos (well, misspellings, as I hand-wrote all the text) are often seen, as well as MANY pencil smudges. My high school art teacher – a talented painter whom I greatly respected – appreciated my pencil work, but suggested to me to ink my work to preserve it, to which I did in the following season, 1992. Enjoy VOLUME 3!

 

#16 | The Chaos Conjuror! The Revelation of Babah & The Bloodsword Seeker

It is the year 1991, and a new villain has been revealed. As seen in last season’s “Last DaYz of the Glare”, someone has been trying to assassinate Chrusher, hiring his friend and fellow Conqueror RaYzor, mutant-like gangsters, Ninjas, his greatest foe Obliterator, and even a now perished girlfriend. The greatest challenge lies ahead for the Conquerors – Oswegonian High School Justice-Seeking Vigilante Team. And a prelude into one of the most perplexing, odd, unique, dangerous, insane, sadistic, immoral – and hilarious characters in the ChrusherComix Universe – Steven “The Renegade Barbarian Bond” Howeird!Let the madness of Howeirdmania begin! Story & art from 1990 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#17 | The Bezerker! The Hybrid Renegade Barbarian – Steven Howeird | Year 3: Issue #2

Wallowing in the dump after being humiliated after being bested by fellow new recruits while trying out for the Conquerors, what little sanity Steven had has now been extinguished. He begins chanting in an undetermined (and possibly made up?) language, says he is the offspring of several nonsensical mixes of ethnicities (that would be difficult, if not near-impossible, to be), wears nothing but a loincloth of some sort of jackal, hyena or large wild cat, wields a giant axe, does not wash nor groom himself, has a perverse worship of feces, and most bizarre of all… his sexuality takes an extremely curious freedom from boundaries – with woman, man, and animal all seemingly fair game to his rampaging hormone-driven rage! I defy you to find a crazier, sicker, stupider-looking comic book villain ANYWHERE! And this was made twenty years before Adult Swim or anything even close to it. Parental discretion… this… is fvcked. Story & art from 1990-91 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#18 | Fort Crusher… GONE! | Year Three, Issue #3

The small, yet formerly indomitable Fort Crusher, headquarters for the Mighty Conqueror group, has been destroyed in the rampage of Barbarian Howeird. Clues pile up lead Chrusher to Anil Inc., and it’s head… King Babah – a mysterious crime lord with chromed armor! Meanwhile, Masuto continues his search in American for a lost master to teach him one of the lost arts… The Buffalo! Read it today! Story & art from 1991 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#19 | Battle of the Bloodsword | Crusher Comics: Year Three, Part 4

What the fuck has the 16-year-old Chrusher and his high school buds gotten themselves into? They go directly in a head-on attack of a secret castle dwelling a large, armored, sword-wielding crime lord?! Oh, and he has a ninja clan to boot. A kinda’ wimpy, Saturday-morning jobber one, but one nonetheless. I mean, are you kidding me? This cannot end well. These boys are WAY over their heads. Battle of the Bloodsword wraps up Year Three of ChrusherComix. And not all will survive. Promise. Story & art from 1991 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

Year Four:

#20 | The Welfwar to End All Welforce, the Headstrong Posse & the Golden Crayon

The Chrusher and his friends (and classmates) have made it to their 4th and final season at the Oswegonian High School. We have seen much during the crazy first three years. Chrusher and the Conquerors meets their doppelgangers of nearby Pulasonian High, a group known as The Headstrong Posse Led led by Martin Scovillian & The Spiceman Spicer! And  they meet Cow Gangnoni, who is seeking a most rare collectible – a Golden Crayon! Ian Babbler, Ronald Foule and Mike Butski break up Welforce with a welf-war! And a matte black garbed entity lurks in the horizon, lethal and clearly psychotic. Enjoy the giant finale of 1992! Story & art from 1991-92 by Christopher Galletta Stevens, with additional retconned material from 2010-15.

#21 | The (Tr)Ogre Soundtrack Storybook | ChrusherComix One-Shot Annual

A perverse side-chapter in the ChrusherComix Universe! Wesley “TrOgre” Stevenson is introduced! The Ogre Soundtrack’s Read-Along/Sing-Along Storybook Also accompanied by a 2-CDR set available for $15, contains material by Chris ‘ChrusherComix’ Stevens, Matt “Galletta’s” Stevens, RaYzor C., Eric ‘Babs’ Babbitt, and A.C. Murphy! Story & art from 1992-93 by Christopher Galletta Stevens with SEVERAL PAGES of crazy fan art / comics that we often just include as canon. We crazy like that, son.

ERA TWO: 1994-1996

#22 | The Return of Crusher #1: “The Scourge of The Scovillian”

ChrusherComix (Christopher’s Crusher Comics) has returned after a few years on hiatus after high school, and the main protagonist of the series – Chace “Chrusher” Stevenson  – has been kidnapped by his fellow high school vigilante from a neighboring school. But why would his good fellow freedom-fighting friend kidnap and mock him after both have graduated high school and begun their adult lives? And Welforce may have disbanded after the events of Welf-War, but the does not stop RaYzor the Hitman from attempting harm upon Ronald Foule just like his high school days, while Ian Babblet is out to assemble new agents. Part of a three part series, fully inked with colored covers. Story & art from 1994-95 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#23 | “Old Friends | New Enemies” | The Return of Chrusher #2

As Welforce gains new members in Corey & The Shark, old Conquerors are tempted by the Welf-side. Flashbacks to part-tie Conqueror Jo-Jo Bunn’s backyard football game rampages begin to weave the tale of the downfall of the Conquerors as we know them. Story & art from 1994-95 by Christopher Galletta Stevens with additional retconned material from 2014-15.

#24 | Scherzo for Latex Muscle Suit & Orchestra at RaYzor’s Funeral | Return of the Chrusher #3

RaYzor is dead? The funeral proceedings with a large contingent of old and new ChrusherComix characters all conglomerated in a funeral home? With RaYzor’s corpse in a casket?! It seems like a recipe for disaster to me. Story & art from 1995-97 by Christopher Galletta Stevens (but as the issue was never finished, additional retconned material is yet TBA).

#25 | “The Arrival of the Dark Conquerors” (10-Minute Quickie-Comic Series #1):

Darkness surrounds The Conquerors. Chrusher, Mush, RaYzor, Cow, and Ricktor have become twisted vigilantes, far from the goodie-two-shoes justice-seekers they had been for years. Chrusher has been slowly refining his mysterious and latent telekinetic powers, but seeing “goodness” steadily leaving the normal populace, he has turned from the way of peace and forgiveness that his eccentric, yet God-fearing mother Mare would prefer. Instead, he and his brethren have turned vengeful on those who have wronged them. This starts at the local speedway where arrogant, mildly retarded red-necks with too much disposable income and random Welforce agents stumble upon painful interludes. Beat-downs, pain, hospitalizations, and laughter will ensue. Watch as their enemies finally get a come-uppance… yet do not perish in the sight of what are clearly lethal injuries grievously inflicted upon them. Drawn as a goof with a beer buzz in 10 minutes or less. Not my best art nor story, but chock-full of sadistic violence and some quite funny moments if you like that stuff. And wait… what?! NO! Danny Boyce’s complete and utter victory?! How is this possible?! Find out. Story & art from 1996-97 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#26 | The Dark Conquerors #2: “Danny-Boy Triumphant?!”

Finishers Off The Roof!! Danny B The G f’n’ rules! No plot, just profusely beating on people & throwing them off hospital roofs into a pile and then mocking them as their ruined bodies simply do not die. If you like that kind of stuff, then read it. If not, then skip it. When it comes down to it, people who read these get a big kick out of them. People who don’t.. miss out. Your choice. Story & art from 1996-97 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

ERA THREE: 1997-2006

#27 | The Dark Conquerors #3 – The Introduction of the Welphys

As the Dark Conquerors pummel their enemies, rendering them into ruined, barely alive zombies at the Oswegonian Hospital, The Welphys enter the picture. Elderly, obese, coprophiliac, cantankerous, abusive, hateful, two-faced… the Welphy family take the ChrusherComix Universe to all-new lows. Don’t believe me? Just read it. Stain your eyes for good. See, what you cannot unsee. Learn, what you cannot unlearn. Story & art from 1997-98 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#28 | The RaYzor’s Edge [& The Lunaticials Are Coming…]#1 (1997)

After the tragedy of “The Dark Conquerors vs.” and “Meet The Welphys” – long-time friend of ChrusherComix creator/author/artist Christopher Galletta Stevens – RaYzor Castaldo attempts to take over the comics again for the first time since 1989 with “RaYzor C.’s Hitman Comics”. Chris enjoys when other people assist in the ChrusherComix universe, and Ray’s efforts are usually made canon and built upon. Such is the case here. Ray’s comic leads us on a dark path… a path that takes us to a whole new world of insanity… a band of merry creatures called…. The Lunaticials. Read NOW! Story & art from 1997-98 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#29 | The Arrival of the Lunaticials | The RaYzor’s Edge #2

Chrusher and the gang look on in horror as RaYzor has been attacked by the loose cannon mercenary named Keith “Slasher” Clarkson – a grown-@$$ madman who wears a hooded mask like Cobra Commander and sports very sharp Wolverine-like claws (since the “Raked @$$” incident of 1988 – see “Rake Science”). Keith is coming for revenge after their once friendly rivalry started getting out of hand (see the “Slasher Comics” fan art section). What will happen to poor ol’ RaYzor, who’s life seems to always take on these odd twists and turns of proud triumph followed by humiliation.

Meanwhile, an all new chapter is unfolding. An all-new batch of characters, complete with a roll call! From a short bus crash emerges a most peculiar lot — The Lunaticials!!! Rest assured, you will NOT find a comic anything like this anywhere. But if onoriginality is what you desire, move along to some other foodstampcopy webcomic out there. Want to read? Well then… proceed. Story & art from 1997-98 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#30 | Clogged Butts & Lunaticials | The RaYzor’s Edge #3

The Lunaticials have arrived. So have some very angry, low-blood sugar, fence-post-up-the-@$$ Welphys. Not to mention a roadkill-(zombie?) Ronald Foule. Suddenly, a karting event turns into a giant bruhaha involving Conquerors Chrusher, Musher, RaYzor, Ricktor, and Overlord Cow in the middle of a freak-show royal rumble in the Conquerors’ back yard. And why the hell do these people like playing with feces? Okay, c’mon now… guys, you’re making me draw WHAT now? Story & art from 1997-98 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#31 | The RaYzor’s Edge #4 – The Defecation of Elephantitus

As the battle rages on between the united clans of a possessed Bastard Bucky’s Lunaticial Forces against at first Scott “The Cow” Gagnoni and then the Mighty Ricktor “Equalizer” Eicholzerson,
the possession of a far stronger and more powerful body than Bucky may turn the gathering into a virtual slaughter. Read now! Story & art from 1998-99 by Christopher Galletta Stevens.

#34 | Holiday Special Annual – A Very Welphy Christmas

 photo bannerHolidaySpecialAVeryWe.jpg

The not-so-holiday-cheery, War-on-Christmas-type Welphys go to the mall during the holiday shopping season. Some familiar characters are also there, and some new ones. Yeah… scene set… hijinx begin! Read now, or perish, kind sir (and/or ma’am). Go. To hell. Now. Story & art from 1999-2000 by Christopher Galletta Stevens, with additional material retconned annually.

The Adventures of Towner & Friends Comics

None of this your thing? Like lighter, more child-friendly fare? Well, take all of the ChrusherComix characters and put them in a Peanuts and Calvin & Hobbes timewarp. And you’ll have:

Welcome to the little-brother comic of ChrusherComix. Imagine if some of the zanier characters from the ChrusherComix Universe were put in a time-warp, adult-humor, mature situations and violence filtered out, and properly infused with Calvin and Hobbes DNA. What happens? The Adventures of Towner & Friends is what happens. A family-friendly/all-ages-appropriate comic strip! Want a book for yourself and your kids to read? The complete collection  is available via a printed anthology at IndyPlanet! Sample the book on the website here! (If the above Towner website is down, the old site is still up.)


 

Over 1,000 comic book pages & strips ain’t enough? Want more, and quicker? Help the author!

This graphic novel is a time-consuming work in progress and is assisted primarily by fan participation (pages read, viral-fan sharing interactions, printed editions sold, votes on voter websites – something that comparatively amateur comics get immeasurably lot more of than I do). This means it is not yet done, and the pace is deeply impaired by the fact that the author has two day jobs to pay the bills. So how can you help? Read the comic (over 1,000 mostly undiscovered pages), buy printed copies, and vote/rate/review it on webcomic rating sites. Thank you and come back often!

It all began in 1988, Oswego High School freshman and young aspiring artist Christopher Stevens started drawing comics in study hall to amuse himself, friends and new classmates. Everyone who read them thought they were a freakin’ riot! They were a hit. AT first, teachers did NOT agree and Chris served a few detentions, in-house suspensions, and even a suspension for his comics. Over time, those skills were put to good use when the high school newspaper decided to bring him aboard for periodic cartoons (that won several top awards in its three years there). It kept going on and off after that.

Keep in mind, these were done before the internet or smartphones, before affordable PCs or Macs and Photoshop, and 8-bit video games had “state of the art graphics”. Hand drawn on lined school paper, their humble and silly beginnings evolved into an epic comic spanning over decades (Wow, I didn’t feel old until I wrote that. Ow.).

Chris and his friends NEVER forgot the fun of these comics, and in 2005, he started scanning, remastering, and posting every single one of those comics on a free webcomic host – ComicGenesis. The project took a few years, and was almost completely ignored by 99.99999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999999% of all web visitors. Only Chris and his buds read it with great relish, and zero people outside of that read more than a handful of pages (think about how small of a percentage of the story that is? Think about your favorite novel, movie, video game, comic book, or television program? Think if you only sampled maybe the first 1-2% of it and then left before giving the rest a chance? Or you try to show it to someone and they blow it off after a 1% sampling? That’s the way we feel when people leave the epic saga undiscovered after a handful of pages. Sure, some of the early stuff from the 1980s and 1990s is helter skelter. Sure, some of it is juvenile/immature humor and slapstick gory violence. And sure, the new graphic novel is a gritty, international crime thriller with political intrigue, weaved into a love story with lustful sexuality, but it has been on hiatus for a bit (after two 20+ page issues that 99% of web audiences ignore, and when it gets ignored, it makes no money and I have two day jobs)… sure, sure, sure… but what good is not reading it? People leave Welforce undiscovered? Cow and his “Rake Science”? Steven “The Hybrid Renegade Barbarian” Howeird? Jo-Jo “The Bully With…” Bunns? The Welforce version 2.0? The Welphys? The Lunaticials? The sensational graphic novel that I mentioned above – the graphic novel that I always wanted to read, so I made it myself? With around 1,000 comic pages, three main volumes, four eras, and each visitor only read 1-10 comics before leaving, while studiously reading pure drivel comics and giving them much higher ratings and audiences.

Chris had almost given up. But then he found WordPress and Comicpress/Comic Easel and decent SEO. He began migrating his old comics, remastering (and coloring) them. And here you are.

The COMPLETE HISTORY of the Annual Galletta's Go-Kart Klassic Championship 200!

THE 13TH ANNUAL GALLETTA'S KART KLASSIC 200!RACE IN THE 13TH ANNUAL GALLETTA'S KART KLASSIC 200!

The Galletta’s Go-Karting Club was founded by brothers Matt and Chris Stevens in the early 1990s when they modified yard karts for racing purposes. They are the inventors of “clockwise 5hp flathead gas stocker kart” racing, and have a 13-kart race team that includes several backup karts available to be rented and raced at both Galletta’s and Oswego Speedway all summer. Invented with specifically “gas stock 5hp motor” rules so that a person doesn’t have to spend thousands of dollars to race in extremely competitive racing events, the class grows in talent and competition every single year. Join us by building your own kart for around $200-500, or rent one of our team karts on two tracks all Summer & Fall in Oswego, NY!

Due to the fact that the karts are so affordable and the oldest veterans have been racing for nearly two decades, it is one of the most difficult karting divisions to win at, but yet you can be instantly competitive for just a couple hundred dollars IF you’re a good driver. You can’t outspend your opponent due to our gas-powered stock-only rule, so you must out-race them and out-setup them. In fact, nobody has ever defeated Matt & Chris in the open challenge: race a stock 5hp flathead and stop them from scoring 1st & 2nd in a points season. Though hundreds of people have tried in hundreds of races since the early 1990s, Chris and Matt have scored 1 & 2 every year. But it’s not just them you have to race. Our regular drivers are all talented and experienced. You can prove your skills against the winningest karters in the local area AND you won’t even have to spend a lot of money to get started! We dare you to try! Make your own or rent one of our racing team karts. Sound like fun? Read on, explore the website, and join us!

The RaYzor’s Edge #4 – The Defecation of Elephantitus

As the battle rages on between the united clans of a possessed Bastard Bucky’s Lunaticial Forces against at first Scott “The Cow” Gagnoni and then the Mighty Ricktor “Equalizer” Eicholzerson,
the possession of a far stronger and more powerful body than Bucky may turn the gathering into a virtual slaughter.
