The tale of a mad scientist in a world gone sane! A story featuring robots, action, and shenanigans.

WELCOME TO THE ABOMINATIONS OF SCIENCE!

Hello! My name is Steve King and along with my partner Ryan Kacsandy, we have a small upstart comic studio that is aptly named Dirt Cheap Artworks. We've produced several mini comics in the past and are looking to make our first full sized comic. Our earlier works include two horror anthologies titled "Beyond Sunset" and "The Amateurs of Horror". The Abominations of Science is our latest project and it is a 48 page black and white comic that is a love letter to every thing we love from B sci fi, horror movies and comics.

The Bizarre Doctor...

The story is the strange account of Doctor Rommel Doowde; a man whose scientific acumen and fondness for adventure coalesce into an absurd desire to rule the world. In an age of cell phones and laptop computers, the good doctor keeps his brand of mad science old school. His methods are unconventional, but his finest creation is yet to come.

The Lazy Assistant...

Assisting Doctor Doowde is the eternally petulant Ted. He unwillingly helps the doctor with whatever demented experiment he's cooked up. His interest in science however is usually exceeded by whatever might be on television that night.

The Robot...

Created in the doctor's lab, Roborta is a mystery wrapped in a titanium plated shell. The Doctor calls her "The one he'll be remembered for." But what is her true sinister purpose? Well, you could say she's the heart of our story.

Why Kickstarter?

Currently we promote our comics locally at conventions and we are hoping to produce this book as our foray into larger future publishing efforts. Essentially, we would like this to be the calling card for our work. Any money that we make over our initial goal will go to broadening our convention schedule and other promotional items. Honestly we're just two artists who love the medium of comics and are looking to further our venture into that world. 

Thank you for taking the time to look at our page! Below is some unlettered pages from the book.
