Johnny Raikou is an action comedy produced in 2009. Jonathan Hance writes, directs, and stars in this series set in the slummy streets of Los Angeles. This story follows the lives of Johnny Raikou (Jonathan Hance) and his sidekick, Friend (Portis Hershey), as they try to fight crime as superheroes for hire. Things are going really slow for this duo with outrageous haircuts and even more questionable skills, when they are finally approached by a gentleman with an unusual problem. It seems he has regrets about purchasing services from a prostitute, who he finds out is a human trafficking victim. He hires these two would-be vigilantes to take out the traffickers. The scenes are mostly shot in seedy back alleys which creates a dark and tense mood you would expect from the Los Angeles underbelly. With its thought bubbles and slapstick combat, Johnny Raikou becomes reminiscent of the superhero shows of old.
