For decades, Will Jacobs and Gerard Jones's cult classic The Beaver Papers has been the only published chronicle of how the world's literary, artistic, and intellectual communities rose up in a doomed crusade to stop the cancellation of the iconic sitcom, Leave it to Beaver. Now, at long last, it can be revealed that the story did t end that day in 1963 when ABC TV finally pulled the Cleaver family's plug. In The Beaver Papers 2: The Fall of the Beaver, Jacobs and Jones detail the heroic quest of the Beaver cast to find a new home for their beloved show, a quest that led them through the darkest corners of the TV, movie, theater, and even comic book industries. Along the way they present twenty-five new Leave It to Beaver adventures as if written by world-rewned authors, including J. D. Salinger (The Beaver in the Rye ), H. P. Lovecraft (The Mayfield Horror), Flannery O'Conr (A Good Beaver Is Hard to Find), Vladimir Nabokov (Pale Beaver), and Ayn Rand (Cleaver Shrugged). If The Beaver Papers demonstrated just how dubious the distinction is between literature and popular culture, The Beaver Papers 2 positively obliterates it.
Will Jacobs runs an on-line bookstore out of Stockton, California and has written a few comics for DC. Gerard Jones has written many comics for DC, along with Marvel and other publishers, and is the author of four books, Honey I'm Home, Killing Monsters, Men of Tomorrow, and, coming soon, The Undressing of America.
