When Pupshaw and Pushpaw depart for the orgiastic delights of Poochytown, the forlorn Frank is thrown by a twist of fate into an unlikely friendship, propelling him down a long road of escapades that ends in one of the most shocking acts ever depicted in the Frank canon. Poochytown takes readers to the crumbling edge of the Unifactor, where the landscape's mind is either unfettered or unhinged, depending on your taste for mischief. What occurs there beggars description, so we will not even attempt it, but rest assured it is a dark-ride-of-the-soul as only the Frank stories can deliver.
