"Einmal Zappatown und zurück" displays Stefan Kleibner's first visit to Zappanale. In words, pictures and interviews.
On first sight, the book did look rather interesting but I was rather disappointed once I started reading it. The story starts with a couple of pages about Hank Woods' Zappanale Club (??) and his scheduled, Ike-Willis-guided Zappanale visits (??).

A missed opportunity.
