Ron English Brings You MC’s SECRET CIRCUS

MC’s Secret Circus, a new comic experience brought to you by Ron English with the help of Creator’s Edge Press is set to come out in March 2011.


Fifty some years ago, planet Earth was visited by an ambassador alien named Orion, whose insidious intent was to exploit Earth’s most unique resource, its people, for the greater good of his home planet.

Upon landing, Orion made his first human contact with MC the Circus Clown, whom he mistook for a world leader. (Posters of the clown were everywhere; it was a reasonable assumption) You see, aliens, who live far longer than humans and are capable of far more long-term planning strategies, had dispatched Orion to Earth with the intention of domesticating humans as a food source. Finding mankind far too skinny for the alien appetite, Orion, along with his new business partner MC, introduced the concept of the self-replicating fast food chain to the unwitting humans with the intention of returning to Earth years later to harvest a plumper crop of humans.

The franchise was named Bad Buddha Burger.
