The Mule boy has gotten a job as a handyman – and not just any handyman… He's doing odd jobs at a president's house! If the Mule boy does a good job, he could even be allowed to guard the atomic box someday! But then some problems arise – in the form of a doppelganger.
The Handyman is an international political thriller. Or… not quite. But it does have a lot of wonderful drawings.
