Welcome to the universe of Dr. Grordbort! From the mind of Weta Workshop Senior Concept Designer and Magic Leap Game Designer Greg Broadmore comes a retro sci-fi universe of interplanetary misadventures, dextrous atomic manipulations, and rayguns…lots of rayguns.
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 : Unnecessarily Violent Tales of Science Adventure for the Simple and Unfortunate 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.
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.
The fictional universe that (barely) contains Dr Grordbort's Infallible Aether Oscillators is the brainchild of Weta Workshop Concept Designer Greg Broadmore. It all started as a series of drawings and acrylic paintings that Greg made. Richard Taylor and Greg conceived the idea to bring these fantastical weapons to the unsuspecting public and the first three Rayguns saw the light of day in 2007. Since then, Greg and Weta Workshop have released a cosmic cornucopia of books, artwork and rayguns both miniature and full-sized, to keep your interplanetary enemies at bay. www.drgrordborts.com
