Ernest Hemingway, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and Ezra Pound are reimagined as struggling cartoonists in 1920s Paris. Oh, yeah: They’re all drawn as dogs, who gossip, scribble, bicker (”Zelda… Do you even love me any more? You used to be the first one to read all my comics”).

For Fans of…
Literary parody.

Does It Deliver?
These garrulous word-hounds fetch wit with bite. Things go downhill a bit when that damn Hemingway proposes a bank heist.
