Book #8: Flyboy Action Figure Comes with Gasmask

by Jim Munroe

Flyboy Action Figure Comes with Gasmask

Jim Munroe’s a bit of an anarchist/anti-corporatist guy; he dropped Harper Collins to go out on his own and created No Media Kings.

His books are cute, although I’m sure he’d hate that word. He has a knack for creating interesting, credible characters despite plots that veer wildly away from any kind of recognizable reality. In Flyboy, the protagonist is able to turn himself into a fly. His girlfriend can make things disappear. Adbuster-type hijinks ensue. It’s fun stuff, a bit fluffy… Edward Abbey it’s not. As I said: cute.
