What do you get when you combine vegetables traversing the dangers of the digestive system, a traveling cartoonist with stomach problems that talks to his dog, and a naive yet impeccably dressed grim reaper and his pet cat? You get "dorkboy questionable characters", a collection of funny and entertaining comic tales by cartoonist Damian Willcox from his popular comic series staples "Kernel Corn & Peater", "Skully" and "Sketchbook Comics" in full, unadulterated colour including an introduction by Michael Lalonde, creator of the webcomic Orneryboy.
"Skully ambles through his semblance of life, looks for love and becomes a rounded character, one gag at a time." - Craig Boldman, Writer & Cartoonist (Archie Comics 'Jughead', web comic 'Tailipoe')
"Damian's comics are a wild thrill ride of jokes about death, nasty viruses, and crazy adventures through the digestive system - all while remaining refreshingly lighthearted - a truly rare accomplishment! Highly recommended." - Chris Jones, Cartoonist ('Snowflakes', 'Captain Stupendous')
First we are introduced to Kernel Corn & Peater the black eyed pea, two vegetable friends whose adventures take them into some very dark places as they trade puns while battling to survive the digestive ride of a life time! Next, Sketchbook Comics follows a traveling cartoonist and his mishaps and heartwarming experiences in Japan peppered with Willcox's footnotes offering further insight into the journey, finishing off with with tales placed back in snowy Canada where a boy and his dog can ponder the mysteries of life and doggie pick-up laws. Fittingly, the book receives closure with tales of the morose yet endearing character Skully, a naive yet well dressed grim reaper that just can't seem to catch a break.
