The metacartoonist evokes the essential accretionary hilarity of Chicken Little in this Zen-like continuation of the hiatal storyline, playfully skirting the edge of irrelevance and incoherence in an ultimately Hegelian quest for resolution of the question. The subtle jabs at contemporary icons inherent in his use of Shakespeare, the spirit of Communism contrasted with the actual individual Communists, and even the appearance of N.A.P.O.L.E.O.N. as representative of corporate monolithicity (itself a droll comment on the current occupation of the concrete, as opposed to the ideal, Napoleon), all these accentuate the ineluctible forward progress of the opus.
