Chris Ryall (w) • Tony Akins, Ilias Kyriazis (a) • Tony Akins (c)

After writing all the many and conflicting versions of the legendary Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, beloved author Douglas Adams created Dirk Gently: a detective with a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, a unique relationship with the laws of probability and physics, and a love of cats and pizza.

In his first-ever comic series, Dirk has been forced to leave his beloved England behind, coming to the too-sunny, too-cheery, and altogether too-bizaarre-even-for-Dirk city of San Diego, California, where he gets embroiled in three separate (or are they?) cases involving reincarnated Egyptians, golden cell phones, and copycat killers. All this in a new town seemingly incapable of making even a single proper cup of tea.

•”Genuinely funny, amazingly punny. Good detective-ish stuff. If you like your Adams and feel that two novels about Dirk Gently wasn’t enough, this is the place to go.”
