Have you ever wondered why all the great figures in history had a pet companion, and if there were all running from the same mysterious threat? Such questions have never crossed the mind of Dudley Datson, a fifteen year-old with a penchant for invention. But when dastardly foes turn his world upside down, Dudley is going to have to start facing things beyond his wildest imagination in this modern day fable from writer SCOTT SNYDER and artist JAMAL IGLE.
