Dorko was originally invented in 1991, as a bad-ass gutsy dog who could talk to neighbourhood children. This comic was shortlived. In 1999, this comic idea was unearthed and re-hashed, and Dorko was no longer a dog, but a red-headed punk boy, who bore a striking resemblance to Johnny Rotten in his Sex Pistol heyday.
Dorko is the punked out hero of the comic series "Dorko on the Patio"--a comic which personified the angst of Canadian teens in the 1990s. A Punk classic giving Can Lit the electroshock therapy it sorely needed!
