"If you haven't heard of this 130 page epic, you need to hear about it now.

A few years ago, musician Chris Fischer wrote and drew a long action-adventure story about the Rescue Rangers, featuring Gadget.  She's a little different... in the course of her adventure she is captured and head shorn, so she's a punky little mouse through a lot of this story.  She also has a serious "thing" going with Chip.  There's serious violence from time to time, as well.

The art is beautiful from one end to the other, told mainly in greytones and one colour.

There's only one problem.  It isn't there anymore!

This came to my attention thanks to a correspondent on DeviantArt.  I decided to email Chris and ask what happened.  As luck would have it, I got an answer the same day.  In brief, his credit card was hacked, and he hasn't adjusted all his auto-pays, etc. and is fitting a new daughter into his life.

However, "Of Mice and Mayhem" can still be downloaded from a Russian site, if you don't mind translating Cyrillic letters and Russian into English in your head...

Just kidding.  That is, no, I'm not, but if you move the cursor down to Dale's head, then move it straight to the left, you will come to an invisible button.  It will light up "English."  Click on that and you're in business.  Unless you like it in Russian, of course.

konorama.ru/omip/

The entire story will download in one zip-file.  Click on the image of the cover and a table of contents will appear to the left.  Scroll down a little until a large white arrow appears, and click on that to begin a download.

Or you can go to:
rrdatabase.dyndns.org/written/…"
  • Listening to: Televison likely, Tom Waits, Yes, or Blondie.
  • Reading: "Julian Comstock", Robert Charles Wilson
  • Watching: ...the little words moving across the screen
  • Playing: With little toy cars (1l18 scale).
  • Eating: Yes, but trying to watch my weight.
  • Drinking: Are you paying the tab? I'll have a Drambouie.

Still currently available only in Russian, as far as I know ... but I haven't made a real search for the English language version (since I saved it all on my own hard drive).

I can't seem to access the pages, and I'd really like them.  I miss this comic so much.  Any chance you could email me the pages?

All 214 or whatever?  I guess I can, as long as your mailbox will take that much.  I'll see how many I can send today.

It's not up to me, of course, but as far as I know Chris has no plans for a sequel.  He has a busy career as a musician, as well as a family, to distract him from the really important things in life.

Not finished? I only just used the link to see that "Rozumek" has coloured the original pages by Chris I certainly haven't downloaded them to see how far he's gone. To be honest, I like the original in black & white. I'm also reluctant to spend three hours downloading the same pages one by one again.

:iconoriginal-iro:
Original-Iro Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013
I actually spent three and a half hours. However, I like both versions. :-)

...and "not finished" means he left out several pages. ~Kinto88 mentioned the missing pages in a comment on the second link.

TaralWayne Featured By Owner Apr 10, 2013  Professional General Artist
Odd ... you'd think he'd do the pages in order, so that if he wasn't finished, it would be the last pages left out.

Good that it can be kept alive! Odd how many people seem to have "lost" it, though, since the story has been on Chris's website all along.

I already saved it from electricfishmusic.com on Sep. 11 in 2008, but itīs good to know that itīs still available online. This comic ainīt just epic, itīs actually legendary meanwhile!!!

I really like the ideas they came up with on konorama.ru , plus the comic is complete. On the RRDatabase , the last page is missing. But I recommend this site for those who want to have the original english cover w/o that cyrillian stamp.

However, thx. for the links! ^^

No one knows for sure if Chris Fischer is finishing the sequel or has decided not to make it.

But I do hope he does make the sequel, the story and art was very beautiful :D

I'm afraid I don't know anything about it... but I know the exact person to ask. Your comment will vanish as soon as I post this, and I'll never remember who you are to give you an answer if I get one... so you had better ask me again in a couple of weeks.

I got a reply from Chris Fischer the same day I asked him about that rumoured sequel to "Of Mice & Mayhem." He says there's no truth to it. He'd like to do another RR story, but he's too busy with his family and career (he's a professional musician) to be working on another huge comic story.
It may be that *someone* else has been talking about doing an unauthorized sequel to "OM&M"... which would be somewhat amusing as "OM&M" is itself unauthorized. But, I can't check into that possibility.

what about Oscar Sanchez he helped him and collaborated with the art like gadget's daughter (young adult) happy mothers day (gadet's daughter wearing chip's flight jacket & showing it to chip & gadget while in a hammock reading)happy father's day (chip fell asleep while playing with his daughter & she says happy father's day quietly in his ear with foxglove & gadget watching in the background) [Chris Fisher on rrdatabase.dyndns.org/image/viewartist.php?artist=26] & [Oscar sanchez on rrdatabase.dyndns.org/image/viewartist.php?artist=123

If Oscar is doing something along along the lines of a sequel, you should ask him. Chris said nothing about what Oscar might be up to, though.

There must be an address to contact him on the website -- you should ask him yourself. I'll make it a bit easier, though, and just give you the address.

"Of Mice and Mayhem" in Russian -- [link]

In English -- [link]

Both those are with artist Chris Fischer's permission. I dunno whether that Hentai site has Chris's knowledge and okay or not.

I know of another place to find it online. I searched for it a while ago, but didn't want to download anything. A little poking around and I found the whole thing in an online gallery. Although, the site it's on is, "risque," to say the least.

There are two sites that have it -- one in Russian, I believe. I saved the pages, having little trust in the longevity of websites.
