Ranklechick is a child Ghoul who lives in the depths of space. Obsessed with contacting the ghost of his brain-dead mother, Ranklechick invents an absurd collection of devices, like his Bliss Extractor, which he uses to try to get an autograph from the ghost of Charles Dickens, or his Sphere of Belligerence, a spacecraft propulsion system that literally insults physics.Life ticks on at a lunatic pace as poor Ranklechick flees from handshaking lessons, avoids being made into candy by the evil android, Nathan Burblepinch, gets repeatedly decapitated, suffers the company of oniomaniac children, suicidal brains, ham, and a grumpy three-legged cat for a best friend ... and all the while he fights the unseen power that continues to make him believe he is becoming a comic book character...
Ranklechick and Pumpernick first appeared in Rikki and Tavisha's comic Super Information Hijinks: Reality Check! in 1996. Ranklechick later got his own two-issue series in 2001 and it was published by SLG Publishing. Rikki fell in love with Ranklechick's world and by 2005 an entire novel was written. The illustrations in the novel were by Tavisha, with paintings by Rikki, and the original two comic issues were included with the prose.
The song at the top of this page is Ranklechick's theme. It's called Gibberee and it is by Rollerwhyle. You can get it here.
