Bloke's Progress

Darren Bloke is an ordinary, hard-working stiff until a lottery win changes - and ruins - his life. He squaners his windfall and loses everything except his beloved dog, Skittle. Then he is visited by the spirit of John Ruskin, the Victorian artist, philosopher, and thinker, who shows him the true meaning of Weath - not how to aquire is, but what is the right way for an honest mean to deal with it. This strange comic book is part satire, part economic and philosophical treatise, part love story, part political argument, part psychedelic craziness, and always funny. Kevin Jackson interprets Ruskin's complex ideas into an absorbing narrative, and Hunt Emerson's fast, easy style makes the whole thing move like a Popeye cartoon.
