World-famous cartoonist Dick Burger has earned millions and become the most powerful man in the comics industry. However, behind his rapid rise to success there lies a dark and terrible secret, as biographer Leonard Batts discovers when he visits Burger's hometown of Hicksville in remote New Zealand. Hicksville is the kind of place where the locals treasure comics and the library stocks Action Comics #1.
