It was only a matter of time, we suppose, before the Tonya Harding-Nancy Kerrigan story made it to the literature rack of the underground. We refer, of course, to the comic book "Whacked! The Adventures of Tonya Harding and Her Pals," which has been showing up on racks all over town.
This enjoyably mean-spirited, full-color parody chronicles the going-for-the-gold capers of Harding (who sports a "No Comment" tattoo on her shoulder) and her, er, alleged partners in crime, "Ex-husband, current husband and future ex-husband" Jeff Gillooly, doughnut-munching Shawn Eckardt and hit man Shane Stant.
It also contains full-page ads of a chain-smoking Harding hawking such products as Ice Whackies Cereal ("Whack! Smackle! Pop!"), Cheat-o's ("Leg Smackin' Good") and, our favorite, the trademark-protected "Baton'ya."
While the comic says this is the premiere edition, the publishers don't list a city, address or phone number for us to find out what they'll do next (probably trying to keep their kneecaps intact).
