Wonderful set of three stories in one volume, with excellent artwork and storylines that make you think. "Duncan's Kingdom" is about a medieval knight who discovers his world is not what it seems. Very poignant twist to the story. "Granpa Greenbax and the Eternal Smile" is the weirdest story, about a frog who's kind of like Uncle Scrooge from Disney, always concerned only with making money, until he discovers the Eternal Smile hanging in the sky. he builds a church devoted to the Smile! But again, there's a weird twist to it. And "Urgent Request" was really my favorite: how a mousy office worker responds to a hoax email and gets some satisfaction in her life. Very cool.
