This was a fun, but short read that follows the lives of two maintenance workers at Terrormax, a think tank for mad scientists, and the kooky adventures they get in to.

This had some really funny parts in it. I really enjoyed it, and it's a series I will probably keep up with. Quick reading, snarky humor about two maintenance men who clean up bizarre and often humorous messes for an evil organization.

A funny and entertaining little book. It has a manshark who goes by the name Cobra McPunch. That's all you need to know.
