Synopsis

DFC Library: The Boss by John Aggs

Meet the crime-fighters from Class Five. When Nas and Bella overhear a crook planning a daring robbery at the castle, they know just who to tell. The Boss is the smartest kid in school. Never outsmarted or outwitted, he's marshalled his class into a crime-fighting unit that could run rings round Interpol. And with the class heading for a field trip to the castle that very day, it's the perfect chance to find out what the thieves are up to - and just maybe catch them red-handed...

Reviews

This really is a story that deserves to be read in one, thrilling sitting, with the pace and the tension slowly ramping up throughout, until the breakneck speed of the ending finishes it all off so wonderfully well * Forbidden Planet * The Boss is the sort of 'kids outsmarting the adults

* Down The Tubes * With a delightfully rousing finale and a feel-good-factor ramped up to overload levels, The Boss is a welcome addition to the books collected from the pages of the DFC * Broken Frontier * Grippingly paced and intricately drawn -- Tom Gatti * The Times * The British comic is something quite unique and it's lovely to see it being reinterpreted for a modern reader . . . Lots of fun and highly recommended as an introduction to comic books outside of the more well known publishers * didyoueverstoptothink.wordpress.com *
