Knot Man

Knot Man

Artists: Daniel Mathews and Priscilla Brown

Theodore J. Knott is (k)not just your average caffeine dependent postgraduate student. Indeed, armed with a mouthful of high energy toroidal donuts, and his Topological Utitlity Belt, Theodore J. Knott becomes Knot Man, ready to take on any emergency.

Knot Man features an all-star cast, including Professor Lickorish of Cambridge University, Keanu Reeves, and the evil physicist, Dr Unununu. If you've always wondered why R.M.I.T. looks as it does, or what really happened in the Matrix, then you can go no further than Knot Man.

Paradox Kid

Paradox Kid

Artists: Jeremy Glick and Sally Miller

P.K., born through the fourth dimension when a Dehn Surgeon transformed his mother's womb into a Klein Bottle, is just an everyday maths student...until he dons his super visor and becomes Paradox Kid.

Paradox Kid uses the strange mathematical powers bestowed upon him by his unusual birth to rescue his fellow students from Perturbed Bayshun the insane psychotic physics student (Issue 1, 1999), the masked invigilator (Issue 2, 1999), and even the visible radiation emitted by the iMacs in the student computer lab (Issue 1, 2000).
