Wu Ming: Pantegane e sangue (Rats and Blood). "In a Disney universe gone insanely adrift, Mickey Mouse is a former corrupted cop and a lonesome fascist psychopath. Goofy is a junkie shooting up skag all the time. The city is verging on a civil war between anthropomorphic (humanlike) and zoomorphic (beastlike) animals. Mickey investigates the activities of the Real Panther Party and those of a mysterious pan-Africanist gangster, a Hippopotamus called Ntumbi. Finally, in a sequence inspired by David Cronenberg's Videodrome, our hero finds out that the world he lives in is not the real world. " See also Canard à l'orange mécanique.
