[[caption-width-right:300:King of the Unknown]]

[[http://kingoftheunknown.com/ King of the Unknown]] is a [[ThePowerOfRock rock-powered]] webcomic thatís equal parts supernatural horror, [[{{SlidingScaleOfComedyAndHorror}} raunchy comedy]], action epic, and [[{{conspiracykitchensink}} all-you-can-eat conspiracy theory buffet]].

Stygian horrors, alien invasions, covert ops are all just another day at the office for the [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed King of Rock 'n' Roll]]. Ever since a supernatural mishap transformed the [[Music/ElvisPresley King]] and forced him to [[ElvisLives fake his own death]] (and perhaps forced some of his sanity into early retirement), he has dedicated his new secret life to a [[TheMenInBlack shadowy government organization]] known as the [[{{GovernmentAgencyOfFiction}} Institute for Research and Study of the Unknown]] (IRSU). With the help of a [[InstrumentOfMurder magical guitar]], a [[HotLibrarian rookie cryptozoologist]], and his [[RobotBuddy good friend]] {{Leonardo da Vinci}} (whose [[GhostInTheMachine spirit resides in a robot body]]), King kicks the collective ass of [[{{AllMythsAreTrue}} everything]] that goes bump in the night. Their mission: to keep our world safe, and [[{{masquerade}} blissfully ignorant]], from the unknown forces that constantly threaten our very existence.
