The Adventures of Internet Starring Outer Space North Koreans MC Boy and DJ Aak is a non-illustrated webcomic created by Leonard Pierce in 2007. It portrays the adventures of a pair of aliens sent to infiltrate and conquer the Earth, disguised as North Korean bootleg software manufacturers. “Internet”, a mysterious figure that researches often-irrelevant information, assists them. It is difficult to discern the exact nature of “Internet” due to the comic’s lack of illustration.

Much of the strip’s humor stems from its “fish out of water” narrative, with DJ Aak (who assumes a female human form) attempting to assimilate while MC Boy (who takes on a male role) thwarting her efforts with bizarre or inappropriate behavior. DJ Aak – named for a Korean form of story-song – and MC Boy are also unfamiliar with Earth’s gender roles, as well. The two are obsessed with American hip-hop culture, and many jokes revolve around random internet searches and whatever the author feels like ripping off at the moment.

Critical reaction

Critics have generally ignored The Adventures of Internet Starring Outer Space North Koreans MC Boy and DJ Aak, apart from noting that it is not technically a comic on account of having no illustrations. Pierce’s announcement, in June of 2009, that Internet could be visualized as a huge, malevolent coconut crab, failed to attract new readers, as did the marketing of a DJ Aak gimmie cap. The cap did, however, prove popular with a surprisingly large number of murder victims.

*: Or perhaps not.

Actually, you could probably get away with that, if you put out the disclaimer that the purpose of the "comic" is to get people to notice the visuals in their day-to-day lives or some such.

But then you'd have to top yourself by posting a series of photos that shows an unsharpened pencil in different positions inside a sink and tell critics that it's actually a powerful critique of the submergence of intellectualism within the socio-technological structure of twenty-first century capitalism (but that's my idea to achieve artistic immortality, dammit).

Seriously, though, I miss this non-illustrated misnomer of a webcomic. It was high-larious!

That is much too well-written for Wikipedia. You need to remove a whole bunch of commas and insert at least four nonsensical metaphors. Also, you need to add several flags for lack of citations and questionable relevance*, and also there should be a comments page in which a lot of people swear a lot for no reason.

*Not that I would question the article's relevance, but I wouldn't question Jane White's article's relevance either and that nearly got deleted about six times. ASSHOLES
