|Flavor of the month is Fever Dream|
Okay, here's a pitch: The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, but instead of characters from Victorian era adventures, it's mascots from every major restaurant and specialty food chain which ever offered an in-house comic featuring their mascot fighting crime. Let's see, that'd be Bob's Big Boy, the Burger King Kids Club kids, Captain D and, of course, Basky and Robin - and their pal the Pink Goose!
|No, just call the police.|
Whatever the case, they're apparently the trio to call when something untoward happens, such as a spate of dognappings followed up by ransom demands. This is the work of the appropriately monikered Dognapper, aka "The Man in Dog's Clothing," a bearded baddie whose dog-head hood is only the least insane part of his costume. Look at those thigh-high boots, for instance, if not what appears to be a pink terrycloth housecoat. Did he steal that from Mrs.Roper?
|Well, they'll know you as the guy who wears a dog head.|
Naturally, the first thing the kids do is call the police, so it's a responsible book, if not one that the title characters do a lot in. Still, they manage to nab the Dognapper, despite his bullet-prood plan - "With this fake dog-mask over my head," he muses, "No one will ever recognize me," adding "With all this money I'll head west and start a new rich life ... I'll dognap again!" Oh, it's not a profession, it's a compulsion.
It's a good strategy, but it falls apart in the end. Now all that's left for the Dognapper is a prison sentence and five to ten years of the ol' Pink Goose.
Oh, and the flavor of the month is Can't Stop The Nuts.
