  • Darren Bloke is an ordinary, hard-working stiff until a lottery win changes—and ruins—his life. He squanders his windfall and loses everything but his beloved dog, Skittle. Then he is visited by the spirit of John Ruskin—a sharp-eyed art critic and reknowned “holistic” thinker from the 1800s. Ruskin shows Darren the true meaning of Wealth—not how to acquire it, but what is the right way for an honest human to deal with it. Further visits from Ruskin’s spirit take him on a journey into Perception—how to look at the world through a more creative filter, and finally, he learns from Ruskin the true value of Work, and how it can enrich his life above and beyond a pay-packet. Darren discovers the meaning of Ruskin’s favourite saying, “There is no wealth but Life.” 

    This strange comic book is part satire, part economic and philosophical treatise, part love story, part political argument, part psychedelic craziness, and always funny. And, in Skittle, Bloke’s Progress has one of the most loveable dogs in comics!
