After a worldwide energy and economic crisis, newspapers have ceased production and nearly every form of art and entertainment is a digital simulation. In this seemingly impossible (but plausible) future, a crusty old cartoonist named Frost has a great gift to leave Giles, his only child. Frost is the creator of Li'l Nibs-the most celebrated comic strip about four little aliens who crash-landed on Earth during the crisis and aptly announced, "Weez Comez in Peez!" However, to Giles, the funnies have caused nothing but conflict in his life. He's grown to resent Frost's crudely hand-drawn creations. But as the young Virtual Art professor soon learns, things aren't always as they appear. Like a cartoon wizard behind ink-stained curtains, Frost weaves a whimsical tale about the origins of the funnies, webcomics, and a terrorizing menace that threatens to kidnap every artist's childhood dreams! Whether Giles believes it or not, the fate of the funnies is in his hands...
