From voice actor (GIR from Invader ZIM) Rosearik Rikki Simons and illustrator Tavisha (also ShutterBox and SIH: Reality Check!) comes a bit of absurdist baroque punk comic melancholia in the form of Ranklechick and His Three-Legged Cat! Oogaly-glee.
Obsessed with contacting the ghost of his brain-dead mother, Ranklechick invents an absurd collection of devices, like his Bliss Extractor, which he uses to try to get an autograph from the ghost of Charles Dickens, or his Sphere of Belligerence, a spacecraft propulsion system that literally insults physics.
Life ticks on at a lunatic pace as poor Ranklechick flees from handshaking lessons, avoids being made into candy by the evil android, Nathan Burblepinch, gets repeatedly decapitated, suffers the company of oniomaniac children, suicidal brains, ham, and a grumpy three-legged cat for a best friend ... and all the while he fights the unseen power that continues to make him believe he is becoming a comic book character.
An amazing tale, at a very large, 800-something pages. Defiantly worth $3.00 dollars.
