Dorks Collected

Gearing up for Wizard World 2011 here at the Idiot Press house. As per customer request, I've put together a collected book with the first four issues of Dorks. Many people voiced their concerns on buying the fifth issue without the other books to read. Instead of putting issue five on hold until I can redraw the first four issues, I'm doing a special collection of the first original issues which will lead directly into the new fifth issue. It's all totally relettered for an easier read and I've also included the seldom seen short stories. There was a FCBD ashcan given out in 2010 of the two stories but now you can get them if you didn't attend our FCBD 2010 signing. Here's a look at the cover:

The cover is of course based on the first cover that was done from the original version of the series and the relaunch (pictured in the background of the new cover). The back cover is a redrawing of the second issue with Latitude on the box. There are new spot drawings inside the book so there will be new material to look for in this book.

Dorks Vs . . .

For a while I was into drawing the Dorks fighting somebody. In these two drawings it was the Mr Men. After these drawings I even wrote a story that went along with it. These were done around the same time that I was doing the Dorks relaunch that never happened. Shocked I'm shure. Alas, enjoy these oddball fights.
"Dorks vs Mr Men": This one was alot of fun to do. If you don't get the reference, Attitude and Mr Happy are squaring off ala Superman and Shazam in Kingdom Come. My favorite part though is the way Mr Tickle is slamming Latitude into the building."And then the reinforcements showed up": The original idea behind this was that the Dorks brought in the Idiots for a revenge fight. The story I wrote was way different. Doesn't matter. Total ambush here on the Dorks part.
"Caped Wonder Vs Longitude": Simple drawing of Caped Wonder knocking Longitude off a tall building. Wish I had finished this one. It really only needed the building bricks on the right side and it would've been done. Not really shure why I stopped working on it. Other then laziness.
