He has a knack for nostalgic character driven humour (if that's a thing) and a gift for writing story arcs that will keep readers enthralled to the very end - and then have them coming back for more.
Buy this, you wont be disappointed.
The books are very special. They have extra content and come in a glorious quality finish that made my day. "What is this large package I have received?", I wondered. Then I opened it, and thanked myself for buying myself such a wonderful gift.
It made me smile all day. Then I read it and it made my smile last for 1½ days more. Then my father picked them up and thought they were great too.
John Allison has outdone himself with this sumptuous volume, adding and revising artwork for the print edition.
I would recommed this book for everyone who has ever been to school, from reminiscing adults to younger people- this is guaranteed to drag you away from your smartphone while you enoy its depths.
Oh... and keep an eye out for aliens.
This particular story, "The Case of the Good Boy" is a fine yarn. The characters and setting having been well established by the first volume, this second case allows Allison to develop the relationships between the teenage sleuths. Allison is the master of consistently providing lashings of humour in every strip without at all sacrificing the demands of the narrative. I would highly recommend The Case of the Good Boy to just about anyone.
In The Case of the Good Boy (as with all the Bad Machinery stories) there's mysteries, a magic pencil, mild peril and the crippling embarrassment of being young and at school. If you've never read any of John Allison's work before, now is a perfect time to start with this entertaining and heartfelt, oddly English collection.
I would recommend them to anyone, and the joy of book form is that you can sit at home, reading, eating cake, and with tea coming down your nose as you snort uncontrollably at EVERY SINGLE PANEL, and no-one can see you dripping beverages onto your tea-short via your nostrils.
It doesn't get any better than this
