Greg Broadmore: 'Dr. Grordbort's Onslaught: Excessive Space Violence for Girls & Boys'
To put it plain and simple 'Dr. Grordbort's Onslaught: Excessive Space Violence for Girls & Boys' is pure Victorian steampunk fun. An anthology edition of author-artist Greg Broadmore, the 'protagonist' of 'Onslaught is Lord Cockswain, a bigoted, imperialist, sexist, self-absorbed 'Man of the Empire' (note that I didn't say homophobe as he states he did spend time in the Navy...) Stephen Fry probably sums it up best: 'When steampunk meets adventure and adventure meets comedy and comedy meets ingenuity and ingenuity meets charm and charm meets wonder and wonder meets pleasure. Dr. Grordbort is the future. And the past. Which makes an ideal present.' Nuff said. (9 out of 10)
