Review: Doctor Grordbort's Contrapulatronic Dingus Directory

By jingo, by crikey, and by all that's good in this world, he's done it! Dr. Grordbort has released his directory of scientific splendor. A catalogue of wondrous contraptions and wave weapons of unprecedented power, this book makes available a myriad of destructive and beneficial devices to any intergalactic explorer: Rayguns, Metal Men, Ironclads, and Rocketships are all presented.

This book is very different from the books I have reviewed so far in that it is not a story book, but it is still very much a book that will appeal to older boys (and may of their dads). This is a beautifully presented catalogue of some of the model steampunk-ish weapons that have been created by Weta, the people who produced the amazing special effects for the Lord of the Rings film. On almost every page you will find several stunning rendered drawings of these models, complete with funny, tongue-in-cheek descriptions of their uses and powers.

If you are someone who reads books and then discards them then this isn't for you. However, if you like books to keep; books to go back to from time-to-time; books with wonderful images that inspire you; then this is for you. It is only 32 pages long, so look at it as a hardbound addition to your collection of sci-fi comics.
