DORKUS AND THE AFFAIRS OF LORD WILLING

A peculiar comedy by Dave DeLuca and Wes Jenkins. Set in the heart of the Brutish Empire and the uncivil belly of Merika of the 1860’s, this is a bumpy tale of a twisted aristocrat, who is conducting sovereign-sanctioned ergot experiments on his entourage, who in turn are controlled by dark and fatuous forces. Dickens meets Jules Verne in Dada soaked Victoriana.

This exclusive eBook edition has been lovingly hand-crafted, using only the finest authentic Victorian-era pixels. Profusely illustrated and professionally punctuated, it will delight and astonish even the most jaded thrill seekers!

Praise for “Dorkus”:
“It’s quite risible. Bulldada of the highest – and lowest – variety. SubGenius from a parallel world of the absurd.”
Rev. IVAN STANG from the Church of the Subgenius

“Where do you find the time to do this? I don’t have the time. Where did you get the time?”
Wes’ next door neighbor

“I like the pictures and if I never read a book again, this would be on the top of my list.”
James H., Former professor at an Ivy League University that would rather not have their names mentioned in regards to a book called Dorkus
