DFC Library: Good Dog, Bad Dog by Dave Shelton


DFC Library: Good Dog, Bad Dog by Dave Shelton

Kirk Bergman and Duncan McBoo are pedigree police: the finest canine cops in all Muttropolis. And they're never short of work. The city is heaving with cunning crooks and malevolent mongrels who would sell their own mother for a bone. Join our dog detectives as they chase leads, sniff out crime, collar the bad guys and generally get their teeth into adventures full of action, suspense and ...milkshakes. Criminals beware: McBoo and Bergman are on your tail! Now in a convenient paperback format!


Definitely First-Class -- Paul Gravett It is a brilliant homage to the classic noir detective movies, and pretty much every cop buddy movie going and is laced throughout with snappy dialogue and one-liners that will make you laugh out loud Book Zone for Boys Sequential narrative (comic book panels to you and me) can offer more visual possibilities than straightforward writing and Dave Shelton makes full use of the form ... This hairy whodunnit will thrill children from 5-99. Go fetch! -- Emma Byrne Inis The plots are goofy, the laughs are there and writer/artist Dave Shelton has got more expression out of his characters than I thought possible. Let's hope we see more of the Muttropolis duo in the future Bear Alley A hilarious noir detective romp ... Full of slapstick visual gags and great wordplay, you'll soon develop a soft spot for these two lovable detectives -- Daniel Hahn The Ultimate Book Guide
