Chub and Coney are simple maintenance workers in the vast sewer system beneath a city they never see. They are overworked and filthy and live for simple pleasures such as seeing a bird, or some time off. The subterranean ecosystem is thrown out of balance when a mysterious naked interloper starts causing trouble. There are plots afoot in the underground, and Chub and Coney have been given the unhappy task of clearing them away. Drainers collects Alex Steacy's webcomic Dregs into print for the first time, in a newly edited and polished edition. It is a surreal comedy of errors about working class heroes fighting to hold society together by keeping its foundations in one piece.

About the authors

Alex Steacy is a Canadian author and illustrator from Victoria, BC who has been drawing since he was old enough to hold a pencil. His work follows a dark, industrial theme, with a tender and sometimes even humorous heart. Drainers began as something for Alex to focus on in order to break a trend of leaving projects unfinished. He hopes this project can inspire others to finish their projects as well.
