Gordon Bennett returns, again, for his third adventure, as if saving the world twice before wasn't enough for the humble binman. This time, however, it's familial. The Binman Trilogy was conceived in 2015 and primarily took inspiration from the first three Rambo films which also served as the basis for the artwork. That said, like The Binman and Bennett, many other classic 80s action-film set pieces and one-liners have contributed to craft and celebrate this wholly original homage to the 80s action-hero gods I worshipped in my impressionable teenage years. The Bennett III script was finished around the day Rambo III was released; sheer coincidence or divinely ordained?
Evil won't have mercy. GordonBennett will.
Bennett III begins six months after the cosmological events of the binman's second world-saving adventure, this time in Gordon's manor, London town. In the basement of nightclub a clan of vampires, led by Tredhur the thrice-centenarian castrated clan chief, who inducts, by bite, a new vamparina into the clique, Korean virologist Misuk-Kok a begrudging blend of brains, brawn and beauty who unwittingly created and inoculated herself with a vampire vaccine. Hot on the coterie's coat-tails is vengeful Agent Jobsworth of M.I.5, stealthily aided by tech guy Agent Bavard and an elite team of police firearms officers. Alas, the rescue is bungled; Kok now in a vampiric coma is whisked away by Tredhur while his heinous henchmen rip the elite squad to pieces. Jobsworth is suspended from duty.
He'll give evil a war it won't believe.
Gordon Bennett has recovered from his former 80s action-film obsession and still lives in domestic bliss with doting wife Karen and computer game playing teenage son Rodney. But, Gordon's past catches up with him yet again when Jobsworth, enacting plan B, pleads with him for help to take down Tredhur and his mob. He reveals that the vagrant he crushed to death in the back of his bin lorry a fateful year ago was his son who had been sexually tortured by Tredhur and Batygal, a massive minge-munching vampiress, before being discarded in a vampiric coma in an overflowing garbage dumpster. Out of sympathy for the slain son, Gordon agrees to penetrate Batygal's lesbian lair.
Evil drew first blood and its last.
When Jobsworth slays Batygal, Tredhur, now slowly dying having imbibed Kok's vaccinated blood, vows revenge on him and Gordon also by abducting Karen and Rodney into whom he plans to transmigrate his soul. The race is on for Jobsworth to rescue Kok and get the revenge he so badly craves and for Gordon to save his family from the diabolical machinations of an unforgiving evil by recycling his former 80s action-hero obsession as a force of good. But, will they overcome the supernatural superpower that vows their destruction? Will Gordon successfully recycle his former destructive fanaticism as a force for freedom, and, should he even survive,what will the future hold for the binman?

"I’m a binman; you can trust me to keep a lid on this"
"Transgender? Gordon’s got the biggest bollocks in the world, ‘ows ‘e gonna act like a bird?"
"Know what irks me the most? After all the years I kept London town safe from scum that would do us ‘arm, all I get is a kick in the balls when I need a few favours."
"What I need is someone with years of experience in shovellin’ shite; someone with bloody balls - you, Gordon. Otherwise, bloody mayor Shital will have us on ethnic minority sensitivity courses where we’ll be made to feel guilty for being straight bloody white men until we bloody die."
"D’ya know what sums you up, Gordon? This shit-‘ole. You saved the world not just once, which would be enuff for any man, but two fuckin’ times and not one single cunt knows about it. You should be on the telly, in the papers, on every fuckin’ magazine cover. Governments should be drivin’ ya round in limousines, puttin’ ya up in presidential palaces where every night ‘ordes of busty birds suck ya dry. Instead, you’re ‘ere, a derelict sewage farm that ‘asn’t seen a turd in twenty years."
