1000 Steps To World Domination

Interlude Old Man Dead Or Alive  

Rob Osborne wants to conquer the world, and he wants to do it through comics. Are his dreams of global supremacy delusions of grandeur? Or is he, in fact, a tyrannical genius?

In his pursuit of world domination, Rob faces numerous obstacles. His dogs don't take him seriously. He's impugned by his inner monkey. His wife rolls her eyes. But Rob is relentless.

Resistance is futile!

"Monty Python has an American cousin. Osborne manifests the same propensity for attempting the improbable by means of the ridiculous that propelled the Pythons to the pinnacle of comedic renown. But the heck with comedic renown. Osborne wants world domination. Marvelously demented!"

- Ray Olson | Booklist

"1000 Steps To World Domination is the greatest example ever of how to take a very simple idea and transform it into a piece of comedy gold to be quoated and cherished for years to come."

- Augie De Blieck, Jr. | Comic Book Resources

For "Old Man" Roger, spectacular misadventure beckons!

Roger is feeling the chill of old age, and it's not going away. Thrust into misadventure, he encounters the fantastic and the whimsical. Roger is vaulted to the tops of the clouds and plunged to the depths of the sea.

He tangles with a giant octopus, wrestles a bear, and confronts a sock-eating monster. Through it all, Roger excavates his own resourcefulness and zest for life.

Based on the story that appeared in 24 Hour Comics Day Highlights 2006, Osborne has rendered a remarkable, all-ages graphic novella.

Jailed and tortured in a dusty frontier town overwhelmed by zombies, the boys bust free and join a ragged band of townspeople for a gut-wrenching Old West showdown against the ravenous, shambling dead.

Lord Alfred Zango, Jr. was once the most feared super villain in Metrotown. He razed entire blocks, crushed super heroes beneath his heel. Now he's just a malcontent couch potato. In bunny slippers and bathrobe, Zango gorges himself on junk food and fumes over the media attention that other super-baddies receive.

Too lazy to leave the house, Zango sends a gorilla assassin to eliminate his competition!

From the award-winning creator Rob Osborne comes this hilarious and offbeat look at super villainy.
