Benny & Sid presents Chapter 16 of the serialized graphic novel The Truant Officer featuring the Mysterious Futoko

Why is everyone so afraid of Futoko?

The Truant Officer #16
by Glen Bledsoe

(Your City USA) - Futoko is not a gentleman burglar. He is not a Robin Hood nor a Raffles.

Futoko owns nothing worth giving anyone, nor is of value himself.

Futoko tells no one what to do nor where to go.

Futoko cannot be found in Walmart nor can your doctor prescribe him to remedy your problems.

He cannot be ordered from a special site on the internet nor can you bid for him on e-Bay.

Futoko is nothing really.

So why is everyone so afraid of Futoko?

Read and perhaps you will find a suitable reason.
