Coney & Blau
The SIX-CYLINDER SAMURAI is a robot, a car, a samurai, and he's a wise-ass TEENAGER! He was built by Dr. Kenneth “Kenny” Tesla, a brilliant young scientist who is nothing but a head. The Southwest Baron took Kenny's body when he refused to pay his taxes.
Kenny wants his body back. He wants to help the poor people of Earth. He wants to bring down the barons. So he built a robot out of salvaged auto parts and the engine from a 1953 Chevrolet Corvette. He then downloaded every bit of information on samurais and the Samurai Code.
But somewhere in that code was the personality of a 16-year-old human teenager. A feisty, raucous, self-possessed, optimistic, wisecracking teenager.
Kenny named him Chevvy.
Chevvy is strong enough to pull a train car, can go 135 mph on two wheels, 220 mph if he's in "car mode," gets 500 miles to the gallon, and “eats” fuel -- which can be any bio-degradable substance from switch grass to recycled french fry grease (Chevvy prefers the french fry grease).
Karl and Hedo
Karl the amazing bag-boy versus Hedo the dragon. The CHOCK-A-RAMA is the biggest big-box store in the world. It can be seen from space. It has its own zip code. It has its own weather. It is Walgreen’s eaten by Target eaten by K-Mart eaten by Walmart. Its slogan: IF WE DON’T HAVE IT, IT DOESN’T EXIST.
And it’s open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Teenager Karl Bankhead works there at night – WHEN NOBODY IS THERE. It’s Karl’s first job. It’s the worst job in the world. Why? Because Karl spends every night trying to catch Hedo the dragon – the only rat in the entire store! Hedo is Karl’s Moby Dick; Hedo is Karl’s Moriarity; Hedo is Karl’s OBSESSION. And HEDO WILL NOT BE CAUGHT!!!
Hedo is the Einstein of dragons: smart, cunning, and insatiable in his desire to chew through every boxed item in the Chock-A-Rama. Karl is a typical unpopular teenager: he has zits, he’s angst-ridden, he’s working minimum wage under maximum duress. His job description is bagging groceries and stocking shelves. Forget that – his real job description is: ANNIHILATE HEDO!
Teen and Dragon will battle through every department, wage war in the infinite aisles of the infinite store, appropriate military ordinance (aisle 2322, next to facial tissues), and sometimes rearrange time and space itself when messing with the central atomic reactor that powers the mega-store.
There is no dialog. WHO HAS TIME FOR DIALOG? Besides, there are no words to describe this rivalry – it’s unique. KARL vs HEDO is silent… but deadly.
There are no winners in this battle – only participants – 2 participants: Karl the Amazing Bag-Boy and Hedo the Dragon!!
