Mark Victor Young mixes humor, comics and a crime story in one plot. The Launch showcases Watson Sinclair and his friend JC Dubois, wannabe cartoonist for the daily papers. They have a sick plan to realize their dream. They kidnap Ray Bennett, editor of Royal Features Syndicate and manage to sneak into Canada to collaborate on a new comic series, and a hopefully successful launch. Narrow escapes, stupid failures, attempts to hide their ventures from their families and the police.
