Kling Klang Klatch
KLING KLANG KLATCH is set in a superficially glittering world that, if not exactly human, reflects humanity's desires, corruption, and racism at a fundamental level. Ian McDonald's (Desolation Road) blackly bizarre wit and David Lyttleton's (Punch) razor-sharp eye for detail have created a unique fantasy with a delicious streak of dark humor.

The fictional world this book takes place in is great. A dystopian future where bears are the ruling mammal. Its about as gritty as a noir style book can and should be. The story follows the usual noir detective style, too...and it hits every plot point and cliche the genre has to offer. This was a big turnoff for me and I struggled to finish it even though the panels were interesting and the art pleasing and befitting the modern noir style. Also, the fourth wall was broken; a disgusting trick.
