Doctor Murder is having one awful day. First his arch nemesis leaves him. Then his henchmen. And then his sanity…
Dr. Murder and the Island of Death is a book about beauty and illusions, about longing for those things you don't have and failing to cherish those you do, and... what the fuck is quinoa?
Dr. Murder and the Island of Death is not your typical superhero story – but the bastard child of 1970’s James Bond villainy and French existentialism. Imagine chain smoking Albert Camus and Jean-Paul Sartre, but with death traps, secret underground layers and underwear worn on the wrong side of their pants. Oh, and less boring of course.

Repulsive Attraction is a socio- and eco-critical collection of novels in a palette of toxic colors. A bastard of dystopian pantomime tales about the greedy mutants of capitalism, absurd and repulsive visions of the doomsday future, and the imminent collapse of society. No text, no speech balloons – only radioactive, psychedelic colors.
This release is cornucopia showcasing Patrick Steptoes quirky and surreal micro-cosmos and distinct style, characterized by a meticulous, underlying eye for detail and a deliberate playfulness in regard to the limitations of panels. Repulsive Attraction is a seminal debut that manages to move between neo impressionistic colors and formats, and black humor delivered through almost dadaist depictions of a self-destructive society.
