Hipster Dave

When this wunderkind is hit with a torrent of adulation, he breaks into a bunch of little publishing ventures. The king's horses and the king's men gather round to bid for the movie rights to the likable, self-effacing toy. Comes complete with first masterpiece, The Unbearable Greatness of Me.
