Mail Order Ninja is an OEL manga written by Chicago-based artist Josh Elder and illustrated by Erich Owen. A winner of Tokyopop’s Fifth Rising Stars of Manga contest, the series features two graphic novels released in 2006, a nationally syndicated comic strip, and a revival in 2012.

The novels follow the adventures of eleven-year-old Timmy McAllister, a bright fifth-grader with freckles and unruly hair who lives with his parents and bratty, little sister in generic Cherry Creek, Indiana. After yet another ordinary day of being stepped on by the bullies and trust fund babies at school, he comes home to find that he’s been chosen as the winner of a sweepstakes. The prize: his very own ninja, Jiro Yoshida, the main character of his favorite graphic novel series!
