Imagine if Top Cat was a dog and Hanna Barbara had thought that ultra violence would go down a treat on Saturday Morning cartoons. That is about where this comic is at. Fido is in charge of the gang and won't take any c$STOP-@-SPAM% from anyone. He hangs around spearing cats with a pitchfork, forcing the other hobo dogs to eat toxic fish and generally giving bullies a bad name.

The art style is cartoon-like with some rough spots here and there, but as the book is based in physical humour it doesn't really need any highly detailed illustrations to get the laughs across.

In a Word: Stray.
