Summary

"Jonny Quest meets Infinite Jest! This mind-bending book--half graphic novel, half postmodern mystery, and 25% footnotes--is a thrilling tribute to the ways we build meaning out of disposable pop culture. Who is Mary Tyler MooreHawk? How did she save the world from a dimension-hopping megalomaniac? Why was her TV show canceled after only nine episodes? These are just a few of the questions that young journalist Dave Baker begins to ask himself as he unravels the many mysteries surrounding the obscure comic book Mary Tyler MooreHawk . However, his curiosity grows into an obsession when he discovers that the reclusive creator of his favorite globe-trotting girl detective...is also named Dave Baker. What is Mary Tyler MooreHawk? A compilation of long-lost gee-whiz adventure comics in which the world's strangest family fights to avert Armageddon... and a bundle of magazine articles from a dystopian future where physical property is banned and entertainment is broadcast on dishwashers. It's a document-based detective story that weaves back and forth between worlds, touching on everything from corporate personhood to mutant shark-men to the meaning of fandom and reality itself. It's a show you don't remember..and a book you won't forget. Wait, is this real? Good question.."--Amazon.com.
