Jack and his crew of merry men, now including a bitter Humpty Dumpty, spend each issue in a different archetypal American location, like Steamboat or The Big City. The best play on a cliche is Idyll, a 1950s town that's even darker than Pleasantville. That's where they run into the Bookburner, who seems to be an even bigger villain than Mr. Revise, who's been hounding Jack since the start of his spin-off series.
The highlight of each issue is the six-panel page devoted to Babe the Blue Ox's random storytelling thoughts. The rest of the book is pretty great also.
