Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! The Dork Side of the Moon is a collection of satirical, retro-futuristic comic strips that chronicle the (mis)adventures of the lantern-jawed, lunkheaded Brewster Rockit, captain of the space station R.U. Sirius, whose mission is to stop aliens from invading earth. But too many alien abduction memory-wipes have left him a bit loopy.
Fortunately, he has his trusty crew at his side: Pam, the tough, but high-strung second-in-command; Cliff, the completely unqualified engineer; Dr. Mel, the mad science officer; Agent X, the mysterious government agent who hides the aliens’ existence from the world; and Winky, the cute, pathologically chipper kid who manages to get hurt a lot.
Add assorted aliens (Dorkons, O-Dor from Uranus, the Donut People from planet Torus 8), robots and all-too-frequently expendable crew members and Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! pushes the limits of space, time and humor.
Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! springs from the twisted mind of Tim Rickard, whose work Stephan Pastis (Pearls Before Swine) calls “One of the funniest, darkest comic strips in the entire comic strip universe.”
Dork Side of the Moon includes a selection of strips rejected by newspaper editors as being unsafe for readers’ delicate sensibilities.
