"When Steampunk meets adventure and adventure meets comedy and comedy meets ingenuity and ingenuity meets charm and charm meets wonder and wonder meets pleasure, the result is a Triumph. Dr. Grordbort is the future. And the past. Which makes an ideal present."
TRIUMPH : Unnecessarily Violent Tales of Science Adventure for the Simple and Unfortunate
In his third book from the universe of Dr Grordbort, master illustrator and story-teller Greg Broadmore chronicles the interplanetary misadventures of Lord Cockswain as he enforces earth justice on the belligerent savages of our solar system using excessive violence, bad language and good old-fashioned rayguns.
TRIUMPH contains two stories on Cockswain's misadventures along with blatant advertisements for his other favourite endeavours; drinking, shooting things with rayguns and starring in adventure films.
This is a beautifully produced hard cover book with all 48 pages presented in their full technicolor glory.
Written and Illustrated by Greg Broadmore.
"Ladles and Jellyspoons, all rise for... TRIUMPH. And by Jupiter what a triumph it is! ...For yet again the unfeasibly huge, nay the monstrously Gigantic, creative genius of the inimitable Mr. Greg Broadmore, delivers us from evil. This outing has me feeling that we have reached a tipping point in the evolution of the oeuvre, where we cannot BUT believe that this world is real, that these microscopically detailed inventions are not fanciful conceptual constructs, but an authentic a depiction as any of our Glorious past, present... and perhaps our future.”
"Greg Broadmore’s fertile and twisted imagination has conjoined multiple genres, memories, and a sharp sense of pulp, colonialist nostalgia/parody in this lavish, fully realized, imaginative tour de force. It’s Jules Verne meets Fritz Lang meets Tintin. It’s beyond Steampunk. It’s clearly an insatiable passion for the talismans of a bygone civilization and its slavish addiction to the early industrial age in all its filigreed, ignorant glory. Greg has raised the bar.”

This book is the third of a series in the Doctor Grordbort's universe by Weta's Greg Broadmore. It's presented in the style of a boy scout annual from yester-year, including advertisements for strange inventions, comic strips on the exploits of brave (sort of) explorers and other retro-futuristic propaganda.
For any DR Grordbort fan, Sci Fi enthusiast or tap dancing drill instructor, this is a must-have. Hide.
