    In Scarper Lee's world, parents don't make children - children make parents. Scarper's father is his pride and joy, a wind-powered brass construction with a billowing sail. His mother is a Bakelite hairdryer. In this world it rains knives, and household appliances have souls. There are also no birthdays, only deathdays. Scarper's deathday is just three weeks away, and he clings to the mundane repetition of his life at home and high school for comfort. When Scarper's father mysteriously disappears, he sets off with Vera Pike (the new girl at school) and Castro Smith (the weirdest kid in town) to find him. Facing home truths and knife storms at every turn, will Scarper even survive until his deathday?

    Story and art by Rob Davis.

    Vera Pike: free thinker, troublemaker, rebel. Vera's mother is the Weather Clock; she presides over the satellite town of Head Acre, which hovers a few hundred feet above Bear Park. Her father is a can opener; he spends most of his time in Vera's pocket. The Acre is a cruel and oppressive place, shaped by the dictatorship of Vera's omnipotent, megalomaniac mother: the Prime Minister of Weather and Chance. No wonder Vera fled. At the police station, her friend Scarper Lee is in a pickle jar, alive for now, but only until tomorrow: his deathday. Vera hatches a plan. But with the help of Castro Smith, can she save Scarper from his certain fate?

    The Can Opener's Daughter is a dark and inventive coming-of-age tale.

    Story and art by Rob Davis.

    Castro Smith finds himself imprisoned within the mysterious Power Station, writing his Book of Forks while navigating baffling daily meetings with Poly, a troubled young woman who may be his teacher, his doctor, his prison guard... or something else entirely. Meanwhile, back home, Vera and Scarper's search for their missing friend takes them through the chaotic war zone of the Bear Park and into new and terrifying worlds.

    Rob Davis completes his abstract adventure trilogy by stepping inside Castro's disintegrating mind to reveal the truth about the history of the world, the meaning of existence, and the purpose of kitchen scales.
