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.
