Three Fingers is an amazing docu-comic-retrospective (yes, I made up a new genre). What could easily be dismissed as a light Disney-bashing comic covering Ricky Rat's meteoric rise to fame and the questions surrounding it, the story quickly evolves into something even more clever.Ricky's story parallels American 20th century history in very broad terms, following segregation and integration, forced homogenization, the Red Scare, the Civil Rights Movement, the cult of celebrities and various high-profile assassinations and deaths.The story starts simply enough in Ohio, where Ricky Rat meets a young Dizzy Walters. Dizzy Walters does the unthinkable and puts Ricky into films during a time when Toons are largely found in seedier areas of town and never in mainstream society. He's a instant hit. As others toons attempt to break into films, no one is able to touch Ricky's success. This goes on for years.The rumors start as to the secret of Ricky's success.There's talk of The Ritual.There are blurry photographs.This is where Koslowki's story telling shines through. Ricky and Dizzy become hero, villain, victim, savior, liar and mythholders throughout the story. Glimpses of the truth are also there to be had, but much like any history that has long since passed into legend, it's difficult to say if any of the characters are able to say whether or not they even know what is truth anymore.
