Book Three of The Infinite Pendergast Cycle
God is dead, reality isn’t real, and the end of the multiverse is coming just a few short years from now. Most everyone is in agreement that this is problematic. Tech-geek barflies Jon and Phillip and their menagerie of mutant sidekicks are the only ones who can challenge the likes of goat demon Toothgnip, corporate demon One Death, and psycho chicken Oliver in order to stop the apocalypse. Which means everyone everywhere is almost certainly screwed. Goats: Showcase Showdown—the third collection of strips from the hit webcomic—continues the pandimensional party.
