The Complete D.R. & Quinch by Alan Moore
Cover Concept by Lorenzo Princi, 05 March 2013

Bored, trouble making, juvenile delinquents Waldo "D.R." (Diminished Responsibility) Dobbs and Ernest Errol Quinch are two alien teenage students who get themselves into all sorts of crazy situations as they wreck havoc across the galaxy. These two students share few redeeming qualities yet you'll be thrilled to ride along on their adventures. Alan Moore's clever and rebellious writing shines here. Through witty sarcasm and twist of words, the brains of the operation D.R. makes a mockery of any rational logic while Quinch, the naive brawn adds a less sinister comic relief.

Outrageous fun which still packs quite a shock despite being originally published in 1983. Filled with pop culture references and ultra violence - Think A Clockwork Orange meets Asterix and Obelix. This short run comic is well worth your time, especially if you are a fan of Alan Moore and want to see a different side of his writing style from Watchmen and From Hell. Alan Davis' artwork is perfect for the tone and is consistent for the whole run.
