Untitled, Unhinged and Uncut!
Coming this summer to a gallery show near you, comes the story of a ragtag gang of weirdos on their wacky adventures. See them win baseball for the penant, save Christmas for a sick Santa Claus, and conquer the surface worl with an army of mutant turtles and jingoist crazy people. Untitled, Unhinged and Uncut!
Cloned from the remains of a rat torn apart by a deformed house cat, Gilliam serves as the penultimate test-subject. Or at least he was until he died from an experiment involving a lead-based brand of lipstick. He was cloned from the poisoned test subject, but died soon after from radiation poisoning from a faulty microwave. Then he was cloned after that and died when he was electrocuted to death with a recalled hair dryer. Shenanigans continued to ensue and the DNA that was cloned and recloned became so polluted by the cloning process that the latest iteration wound up as a creature so grotesquely "non rat-like" that he was thrown away as a failure. Now living in the sewers, Gilliam is raising an army of baby turtles to take over the surface world!

"My abandoned kingdom at arms, witness me and rejoice!"
LanQuey was the son of a poor single mother deep in the Dadallas slums before he found God. Seeing God as one who favors the strong, LanQuey took to starting a draconian religious movement that punished the wicked and punished the virtuous slightly less. Now on his rise to power, LanQuey has taken to being the mayor's sycophantic lackey out to commit acts of sin so unsavory, it begs the question if LanQuey's faith isn't just a ruse. Don't even bother ladies. I know he's handsome, but LanQuey is only in to little boys.

The Love Handler
Entitled and idealistic, Yansee "Love Handler" South is a man with a dream for America that borders on jingoistic. So patriotic in fact, that when he received a necklace from the president himself as a child, Yansee wore it for the rest of his life. However, the necklace was made from a tough, non-elastic material that choked him more and more as he got older, stimulating his thyroid and slowing his metabolism, causing him to become morbidly obese. Now eating through an IV and speaking only in gargling grunts, Love Handler runs a über-patriotic militia group in San Francesco named the United Divided, ruling out communism, faggotry and all forms of deviant behaviour witnessed as being un-American.
