Brasselle, Keefe: The Cannibals
"Groucho and his wife Eden are in the book, as 'Mr. Ad-Lib' and his wife 'Eve', but they appear only over two or three pages of one chapter, and that in a memory-flashback while the narrator is talking with someone else. The plot of the novel has to do with the attempts of nightclub entertainer 'Joey Bertell' to become a TV producer, and most of the characters are based on CBS-TV executives of the time. For what it's worth, the narrator also describes characters based upon Jack Benny and director Howard Hawks as being variously 'washed up' and 'no talent'." (John Henley)

Celati, Gianni: La Farsa Dei Tre Clandestini
This is an automated (but manually cleaned up) translation of an Italian webpage (http://www.baskerville.it/Blibri/cb/celati.html) about the book: "Who of us has never wished as a child, to re-live an adventure as some great hero of the screen? Well, Gianni Celati has captured this opportunity and she offers it as a scenario for a film of the Marx Brothers. The trace of the text is obtained from the works of the great comedians. The situations in which Groucho, Harpo and Chico get involved are the surrealistic and absurd, while corruption and speculation serve as a background to this farce. Who loves vaudeville and has been enjoying ' Duck Soup ', ' Animal Crackers ', ' A Night at the Opera', will be in a position to pick up the message. A lot authenticity and often as innovative as what the Marx Brothers have left us. Gianni Celati gives back a dream to us."

Evanier, Mark; Spiegle, Dan: Crossfire & Rainbow : A Night in West Hollywood
"The Marx Brothers play a bunch of crooks who have been hired by some master criminal and/or nemesis of Crossfire and Rainbow, to put cyanide in aspirin-substitute capsules. Interestingly, in the middle of the comic is a huge text article by Mark Evanier, about Groucho, and I believe this article is the same article that appears in Fanfare magazine, Winter 1978, under the title "Groucho and Us". In the comic it is untitled other than a big headline saying TEXT PAGE." (Anne)

Sim, David: Cerebus the Aardvark
(Comic) Lord Julius (Groucho) shows up quite frequently. Lord Julius was introduced early on as the head of state of a country called Palnu, and who virtually controls the economy of most of the known world single-handedly. One can guess at the results. He also has a painted-on mustache instead of a real one. In at least one issue, Sim also introduced a Duke Leonardi from New Serpa, who spoke with an outrageous Italian accent.

Waldrop, Howard: Save a Place in the Lifeboat for Me
"Waldrop is a master of humorous, innovative, sometimes disturbing short fiction that plays on 'alternate history' tropes and a stunning amount of research. One of his earlier stories, '...Lifeboat' depicts Harpo and Chico, Laurel and Hardy, and Abbot and Costello going back (yes, back) in time in an attempt to save Buddy Holly. They are _apparently_ returned from an ambiguous afterlife and appear in the story as we know them on screen ('_Honk honk_ went Arthur...'). The god who appears to be running the operation is a mysterious figure named Quackenbush who make a 'burning bush' appearance in a TV show called 'You Bet Your Duck.' "
