As a series, Webb Wilder, Last of the Full Grown Men is faithful to the hard-boiled detective / Film Noir visions of the 1940s and 1950s, but set in the pop culture world of today. Webb Wilder, as a detective, is a semi-urban hero dealing with characters that are bigger than life and twice as impossible. Webb gets dragged, suckered, or voluntarily dives into situations that seem incredible at first, but logic and luck win out in the end. With all of this intrigue, dark images, and iconic casting, Webb Wilder, Last of the Full Grown Men is also very funny. Consider if Raymond Chandler had written Philip Marlowe for Mayberry's Andy Griffith.
Just another case of money, murder and madness, featuring a cropduster, Mole Men, a worm ranch and a blonde named Ruby Falls. As Webb tries to solve two cases with the same nightmare, he investigates St. Vegas county's largest fire ant hill, has to keep calm under a sultry beauty's “helping hands” and tries to figure out how to eat a worm burger and still be polite.
This tawdry tale of attempted assassinations, psychotic moms and a little doll torn in two, shows that no matter how full-grown Webb may be, he's still just a guy. Barbie's are not Webb’s kind of plaything, as a fractured doll drives two mothers to the brink of killing each other's kids - while the kids try to get married to each other. The final twists turn to the ultimate in greed during the last chapter.
