“It’s a series set in a realm of swords, sorcery and stupidity!,” says David, who I’ve known for a while now since my time editing Star Trek Magazine for Titan.
The series centres on Bill, a man who tires of his 9 to 5 office job as a file clerk intern at the local castle. So he quits and sets out on adventures with Frank, his faithful lil’ blue dragon friend. But no one said it was going to be easy…
“Bill and Frank are a couple of characters fed up with their everyday existence and desiring something more out of life,” says David. “Something I think we can all relate to in one way or another.”
