A vintage delight for adult readers of all stripes, Jess Fink’s award-winning graphic novel debut reads like a whimsical love child of steampunk, silent film, and erotic comics.

1885: an age of industrial revolution and sexual frustration. Pricilla is a woman with needs, and her inventor husband, Robert, is a little too busy with his experiments to keep her fully satisfied. Science to the rescue! With a few gears and springs, the proper appendages, a little lubrication, and a lot of love, Chester 5000 is born! He’s the perfect tool for the job... But what if Chester is more than just a machine? What are the consequences of trying to engineer love?

This 2023 edition features updated cover and interior artwork!
