Rob Osborne’s obsession with world domination began at an early age. He read comic books about heroes and villains in epic struggle, clashing as the world hung in the balance. Eventually, he would utilize comic books as a means to his own global conquest. In 1000 Steps To World Domination, Rob spelled out his grand ambitions. The work won the Isotope Award for Excellence in Mini-Comics in 2003, and shortly after, 1000 Steps was published as a graphic novel. Rob followed up with the surprising, critically-acclaimed graphic novella Sunset City. Other works include the comic book series The Nearly Infamous Zango, The Accountants, and Talking Noggins. Most recently, Rob released Old Man. Austin, Texas is Rob’s current base of operations. He lives there with his wife and dogs. Visit www.RobOsborne.net and www.AbsoluteTyrant.com.

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. Through comics (black and white, yet). On paper, he looks the part: shaved head, square jaw, fills a T-shirt nicely. Steps toward his goal include telling Butch (his dog, one of three, all drawn very realistically); talking it over with his wife ("I don't even want something like that in the house," she says); trying on a Godzilla suit (Butch isn't impressed); wrestling with a wisecracking, deprecatory monkey (clad in either plaid suit and bowler hat or various clown getups); and wearing a football helmet at the drawing board. God drops in with en/discouragement, the devil tries to reach Osborne through TV, and aggressive General Fragg shows up to whip him into shape. Meanwhile, a tortoise races a hare, space invaders give humans anal probes, and Osborne gets promoted at his day job. Marvelously demented! Ray Olson
