So yeah, the titular Puss in Boots is effectively a conman. He uses animal murder to win favor with the King (who is alarmingly into that kinda thing?), then convinces the King that Little Timmy is actually the Marquis of Somethingsomething. This is all part of a plot to make Timmy rich and get him a sexy Princess Wife, which - to be honest - is way more helpful than cats usually are.
If you enjoy the work I do here, consider chipping into my Patreon! It helps a lot. Alternatively, I've got an Amazon wishlist exclusively for Lit Brick material, if you'd like to support the comic in other ways. Thanks!

Lit Brick is a comic started by Jodie Troutman in an effort to read the entire Norton Anthology of English Literature. Having eventually succeeded in that goal, it now features comics about all manner of random literature. And yeah, they're all pretty dumb.
