By Jess Fink. Published by Top Shelf. 

Hardcover, 141 pages, B&W, 2011.

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?

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

CHESTER 5000: Because sometimes love comes with detachable body parts.

Winner of the Ignatz Award for Outstanding Series!

"Liquid and elegantly stylized." — Alan Moore

“Chester 5000 is everything I wish I could be in a robot boyfriend and Jess Fink is everything I wish I could be as an artist. This is the most sexcellent book you will ever read.” —Rich Stevens, author of Diesel Sweeties

“Is there any finer thing than a gorgeously drawn and visually engaging sexy-Victorian steam-punk robo-love story? Chester 5000 is absolutely wonderful, custom-built for your (reading) pleasure.” — Lucy Knisley, author of French Milk

"Fink’s gorgeous, clean-lined art is a good fit for some unashamedly dirty content... Fink’s storytelling is as likely to pluck on your heartstrings as get you all steamed up." The Guardian

"A naughty tale of true romance." io9

"Like the works produced during the high point of the adult film industry, Chester 5000has both a narrative and a heart... fluid and cute." Paste

"Both sexy and charming. This is pornography with a heart." The AV Club

"[Chester 5000] spins male vibrator anxiety (I’ve been replaced by a machine!) into a fantasia about women asserting control over their own orgasms." Burnaway

"A woman-friendly, couple-friendly book destined to become a perennial in sex-positive toy and book stores." The Comics Journal

"Delightfully playful... a genuinely beautiful piece of erotica so evidently drawn with love by a comicbook creator unafraid to concoct something that would arouse women like herself every bit as much as men." — Page 45

"This is the kind of book that makes me ecstatic to read comics." — Johanna Draper Carlson, Comics Worth Reading
