Nationwide (BlackNews.com) â€“ Fiji Random Garage Maid Special 01 Preparation is a fullÂcolor, special graphic novella installment of the Fiji Random graphic novel series. When 16Â-year Âold Fiji Maides crazy cosÂplaying mom, Fujio, forces her daughter to help with a not so meticulously planned garage sale, Fiji discovers a box with a shocking surprise inside.
This peculiar garage sale features a scatterÂbrained mom in a helpful French maid costume, a 16Â year-Âold girl dressed in her mother’s rather risquÃ© bunny suit, and another teenage girl sporting cat ears. And as if this maidÂthemed garage sale isnt odd enough, Fiji has to fend off a creep who wants to purchase her bunny costume for his own questionable enjoyment.
Fiji Random‘s comedic storyline is further driven by artist Justin Raimey’s distinctive art style, which fuses Japanese mangaÂstyle art with the American art style that most comic readers are familiar with. The allÂfemale cast of characters within this title are multiÂ-dimensional and their actions and dialogue are very unpredictable. Despite the adorable appearance of Fiji Randoms cast of characters, this titles humor is PGÂ13 in nature, which adds unexpected shock value to the story itself.
