Who Censored Roger Rabbit?

Who Censured Roger Rabbit?

I've always enjoyed Gary Wolf's Who Censored Roger Rabbit? far more than the movie adaption. Dark and gritty, this noir fantasy is a thriller!

As usual, the book is much better than the movie. Who Censored Roger Rabbit? is a surreal film noir story, that fans of Chandler and Hammet will appreciate, albeit with toons as major characters. Not written for a Disney audience, and certainly clumsy in spots, (like plot resolution,) this story is far, far more entertaining. You'll see a lot of parallels to the film, but the more adult approach and theme fit the genre so much better. I can no longer view ToonTown in the same light.

Eddie, Roger, Jessica and all your favorite Who Framed Roger Rabbit? characters are here, but darker and more interesting. If you enjoyed the movie, Who Censored Roger Rabbit? is a must read.
