** spoiler alert ** In this volume, Jack seems to have finally dispensed with all of his likeable qualities, but at least the author seems to recognize that.

The volume opens with a short story, Jack'n'Apes, and then moves into The New Adventures of Jack and Jack. Jack comes to a bad end (we can only hope, but we've learned in the past not to trust those little addresses to the audience), and the narrative shifts to Jack Frost, a gallant hero (for now). He meets MacDuff, a mechanical owl, and together they start a traveling hero business. It gets off to a slow start, but with a little help from modern advertising, he goes on a proper adventure, replete with nation building and a happy ending. We can only hope that the new Jack doesn't turn out like the old one.
