Bear is a bipolar polar bear, and Taffy is his sidekick, a fox. The ice is melting and they are being hunted by two trophy-seekers, but Bear can't help but fall in love with the polar bear of his dreams. When their peril appears imminent, help arrives in the forms of a mountain man and belligerent Santa Claus.
Lucas Aardvark's Curse of the Bipolar Bear is a humorous comic book for readers 12 and older, in a drawing style similar to Calvin and Hobbes. Because polar bears are symbolic of today’s global warming, this book is both contemporary and timeless.
