It is a Vol 1, No. 1 comic introduction of a new anthropomorphic character Duke. From a software development programmers perspective its got some tongue and cheek references as well as iterations of good/evil and software/Internet programming of its time. This comic book crosses both Technology and Comic Book collectable genres.
This is the only one of its kind, the only comic promoting Duke and the only comic published by SUN Microsystems. Plus, they contracted with one of the most important comic book illustrators of our time Neal Adams. In this romp, there is also reference to the Jit Cola Formula, Duke Ellington, Gates, Al Gore, Ayatollah Khomeini, and John Wayne.
