Inspector Gadget & Johnny Test Land at Viper Comics

Viper Comics is thrilled to announce we have secured Inspector Gadget and (Cartoon Networks) Johnny Test license.  Viper will be developing books based on both Inspector Gadget and Johnny Test and releasing them in 2011.
Jessie Garza with Viper states, “we are ecstatic to have been granted the opportunity to give both of these characters the comic treatment. These are two awesome properties to add to our line-up of recently acquired license (Odd Rods).”
Inspector Gadget is an animated television series developed about a clumsy, simple-witted detective named Inspector Gadget, who is a human being with various bionic gadgets built into his body. Gadget’s arch-nemesis is Dr. Claw, the leader of an evil organization, known as “M.A.D.”

Often cluelessly stumbling through any case he is given, Gadget frequently ignorantly makes foolish and insufferably clumsy mistakes pertaining to surroundings and current environment, mistaking innocent bystanders (and sometimes Brain, his niece Penny’s dog) for enemies, and believing that the real enemies are friends. His ineptitude always leads him into danger, but he always gets out of trouble through either his trusty gadgets, Penny’s unseen assistance, or pure luck.


Johnny Test concerns the adventures of Johnny Test, an average 11-year-old boy who lives in Porkbelly. Johnny is the troublesome, narcissistic, spoiled, hated and widely disrespected member of the Test family, which consists of his super-genius 13-year-old twin sisters, Susan and Mary, his talking (and talkative) companion dog, Dukey, and his over-the-top parents, his mother Lila, who is a full-blown workaholic businesswoman, and his father Hugh, who is a obsessive-compulsive househusband who likes total hygiene and meatloaf. The Test twins use their younger brother as a guinea pig for their various experiments (thus their surname of Test) in their secret laboratory, with which they try to impress Gil Nexdor, their pretty boy next-door neighbor.

    Just found out about the Inspector Gadget comic. VERY exciting. But please, please, PLEASE don’t go down the road of Disney. That was an utter bastardization of the classic cartoon!

    Wow… this may be the best Gadget-related news I’ve heard in a long time! The original ‘Inspector Gadget’ from 1983 is one of my all-time favorite cartoon series. And if that image is from your upcoming comic book adaption, I have to say this looks very promising indeed – not to mention faithful to the source:) The only strange detail I noted was Inspector Gadget’s legs; which, unlike the arms, are supposed to be springs. Hope they get fixed, because Gadget’s spring legs are awesome:) (But don’t get me wrong, the drawing otherwise looks great. I especially love how even Doctor Claw is included in his powerful M.A.D. jet.)

    I also hope you’ll stick to what made the first season of the original cartoon show so good. Those 65 classic episodes are still the foundation for Gadget’s continuing popularity. In short, looking forward to the first issue:)

    This is amazing! If the good old Inspector Gadget and his gang are back to fight Dr. Claw then, I want to read this when it comes out. it will be good to see gadget without the Gadgetinis around for a change (even though I actually liked Colonel Noseair in that series).

    I am looking for a picture of Gadget Boy to put on my son birthday cake. either have it scanned or copied with frosting. I can’t find any pictures big enough. He love Gadget Boy and Inspector Gadget. It his hard to find spy stuff for a soon to be 5 year old. Could you send me one? Even if its just a picture you take with a cell phone. I am at a loss.
    Thanks Susan
