Plot Summary
This collection contains a number of "Lloyd Llewellyn" stories from both the Lloyd Llewellyn comic book series and from early issues of Eightball as well. The "Lloyd Llewellyn" stories are highly stylized satires of film noir and 1950s culture, centering on Lloyd Llewellyn, a private detective, and his sidekick, Ernie Hoyle. The stories are tongue-in-cheek, but also contain a hint of menace and occasional moments of extreme violence.
