About Mel Dyer and Steak Island...
Stocking shelves and loading trucks for the gargantuan wholesaler warehouse, Bygmo Whole World, pointy-headed alien strongman, Bullethedd, stumbles in and out of the schemes of its dastardly, despotic general manager, the Iron Munkee, ..ever plotting to flood the world with tasteless Bygmo-brand junk! While much of the humor in this one-panel vignette, called STEAK ISLAND! is found between the lines, in double-meaning and subtext, itís often worth leaning no stone unturned to fully enjoy it.
Steak Island creator, Mel Dyer, is an American freelance website developer and weblog publisher, who grew up in a hard-working, middleclass, Catholic family in Washington, D.C. Between them, his parents privately operated two successful small businesses, a print shop and a detective agency, for nearly fifteen years, while holding down full-time jobs. At home, the political views of his mother, a right-leaning liberal, and his father, a pro-labor conservative, inspired strong populist patriotism, at an early age, that endures, even today.
Bullethedd, like the author, is very much a creature of populism. Steak Island springs from all of that.
Though Mel Dyer's fine, coyote-hatin' Goldiweiller, Kirby (whom everybody asks him about), has moved on to that big, coyote-hatin' hate group in the Sky, ..the author continues a somewhat bleaker, dogless existence in the Capitol Hill area of Washington. He has been an active member of the Latino Citizens of the Capitol Hill Area and is presently in the Kiwanis Club of Capitol Hill.
