History: Fission Chicken was born in Neeksburg, New Jersey but there is little info about his childhood (and what little there is, is self-contradictory). He does not confirm or deny anything.
Fission Chicken fights a continuing battle against weird monsters and cultural brain death. Over the years he had battled the mind control attempts of Vortoxians, the Ditsy entertainment empire and Video Zombies but also faced some rather unusual opponents like monstrously animated, ravenous toilets, movie monster Ferdie Cruller (pun on Freddie Kruger), and of course his evil twin.
Comments: Created by J.P.Morgan. Fission Chicken has an official website.
As well as appearing in several issues of Critters, Fission Chicken also had his own four issue series from Fantagraphics, and a special, Fission Chicken: Plan 9 from Vortox from Mu Press.
