So, Dr. Whatshisface conveniently has a bottle of Fountain of Youth water mailed to him and - instead of using it on himself - he uses it on his rotting douchebag friends. They're rather pleased with the results until it wears off. Then the old codgers go trekking to Florida to find more. There's a moral lesson in there somewhere, probably, but Hawthorne tends to be so dull that I didn't really notice.
I assume they eventually gave up on their quest to find the fountain in Florida and spent their few remaining years at Epcot, drinking around the world.
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. For more of Jodie's work, visit longtalljodie.com!
