About the show

Part of the New York Musical Festival: The Comic World is in a state of chaos. Joe, the artist who draws the politically savvy 'ULTIMATE MAN!,' has lost control of his characters...and himself! More…

In a desperate attempt to save his beloved Cathy Cookie, Ultimate Man confronts his cartoonist, Joe, in the Real World with villain Rex Ringer in hot pursuit. Buffy, Joe’s publisher, has her own twisted agenda that forces him to choose between creating edgy art or embracing mass appeal in a corporate world. For Joe, worlds collide in this comic adventure.
