One of Alan Moore's fairly early works, and among them only really bettered by The Ballad of Halo Jones and V for Vendetta. The story of two alien delinquents with a destruction addiction is just pure, ludicrous FUN, and absolutely hilarious. Do yourself a favour and buy this.

1.0 out of 5 stars Messed up masterpiece
One of the great 2000ad strips ruined by a terrible reprint that loses all the detail of the original artwork. Avoid this and buy the earlier version.

The only reason it doesn't get the full five stars is because some of the reproduction is really not as good as it could be, which is a shame (and there's really no excuse, given that earlier editions were fine) and it all ends far too soon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ee-ouk!, 18 Aug 2008
By 
Brilliantly funny - and very silly - the adventures of the revolting Waldo "D.R." ("Diminished Responsibility") Dobbs and Ernest Quinch represent some of the best stories of their type from the early days of "2000AD". Moore's scripts are perfectly realised by Alan Davies' art as our "heroes" progress from the throwaway protagonists of a one-off "Time Twister" to fully-fledged stars. With digs at teen romance, the Vietnam War, celebrity and Hollywood (particularly apt in retrospect, considering Moore's now legendary contempt for the movies industry), the pair battle petty bureaucats, psychotic ex-girlfiends and deranged war veterans in universe dotted with some very familiar faces (the Marlon Brando cameo is now legendary).
A great collection of stories by a writer and artist on absolutely top form - an "must" purchase!

5.0 out of 5 stars Genius, 2 Jan 2003

(VINE VOICE)   
Alan Moores funniest writing. More famous for 'From Hel', and 'Watchmen', DR & Quinch was one of Alan Moores earliest works (1983!), and remains his funniest writing. Aided by the sublime comic art of Alan Davids, this is a team-up that has rarely been matched.
In these pages you will find merciless skits of 50's be-bop, the Vietnam war, and the Hollywood dream, topped off with lashings of childish glee at comic book violence.
This is a book to be bought & re-read. I've owned the originals for almost two decades, and they still make me laugh out load. Enjoy.

4.0 out of 5 stars Punks with nuclear weapons, 28 Dec 2010
By 
Hilarious anarchic mayhem from the mind of a young Alan Moore, probably the funniest comic strip I've ever read. Fans of 2000AD and British cyberpunk comics should buy this immediately. Don't expect a sprawling dystopian epic or anything, this is the comic equivelant of 'Bottom' and 'The Young Ones' mixed with some weapons of mass-destruction and a complete disregard for life of any kind. Pick it up if any of that sounds appealing to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious classic comic strip, 27 Nov 2001
By A Customer
D.R. (it stands for 'Diminished Responsibility') and Quinch ("My psychiatrist says I'm a psychotic deviant. But that doesn't mean I'm a bad person, right?") is just about the funniest thing to come out of 2000AD. It's totally original humour with great storylines. If you like the lighter side of 2000AD you'll love this.

5.0 out of 5 stars something something BRILLIANT something..., 1 Mar 2011
The complete combined stories from 2000AD, DR and Quinch are the loveable alien ASBOys from the future. Delinquent and delightful, and in their own way, responsible for the way our world looks today.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dr and Quinch, 14 Dec 2009
Paul "Waldo D.R" Dobbs

Boy the ribbing I got when these 2 characters came out as my surname is Dobbs-this reprint is pretty poor quality I feel.

Looks messy to me and I much prefer the original man......which was published under the title "DR AND Qunich's guide to life" some years ago.

Mind the Oranges Marlon! Classic lines from a classy writer.
