Bad Machinery Vol. 4

The Case of the Lonely One, Pocket Edition

Book #4 of Bad Machinery
Illustrated by John Allison

The second year at Griswalds Grammar brings new challenges, new socks, and a mysterious new classmate for Tackleford's mystery-crazed children.

Who is this secretive character? What is the acrid aroma that accompanies him wherever he goes? And why would anybody want anything to do with him? Seriously, he stinks of onions.

The Case Of The Lonely One pits Shauna WIckle against her most mystifying enemy yet, forcing her to take sides, form new alliances, and make a lot of promises that she doesn't want to keep.

What are the secrets of the onion farm? Why is the newcomer "a right good laugh once you get to know him"? What is an orc? And can too much coffee send you NUCLEAR?

John Allison

Born in a hidden village deep within the British Alps, John Allison came into this world a respectable baby with style and taste. Having been exposed to American comics at an early age, he spent decades honing his keen mind and his massive body in order to burn out this colonial cultural infection. One of the longest continuously publishing independent web-based cartoonists, John has plied his trade since the late nineties moving from Bobbins to Scary Go Round to Bad Machinery, developing the deeply weird world of Tackleford long after many of his fellow artists were ground into dust and bones by Time Itself. He has only once shed a single tear, but you only meet Sergio Aragon's for the first time once. John resides in Letchworth Garden City, England, and is known to his fellow villagers only as He Who Has Conquered.
