"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)
Bright! Colourful! Slapstick! Pun-tastic!
The DFC Library is perfect for reluctant readers. If you know a child that struggles to engage with ordinary fiction, place a DFC Library title in their hands, and watch as they learn to love books. This growing collection, full of hilarious plots, will appeal to anyone aged 9-90 - so feast your eyes on The DFC Library!

It is nicely printed, and the stories are fun. Be aware that the stories do contain some (mild?) violence and sinister menace;
consequently, personally, I'd have some slight reservations about giving the book to a child.
This book is now very popular in my son's year 6 (10-11) class. Its a funny, clever, very artistic comic book that will appeal to childrens of say 5 upwards - there's real depth in the writing and the artwork so the older you are the more gags you will appreciate. Apparently book 2 is in gestation so please tell all your freinds and pass the word around so that we can be sure to see a book 2.
It's a great quality book which showcases the excellent art and colouring, it's a fine example of just how talented a bunch the guys at the sadly defunct DFC are - and luckily for us we now get these great quality volumes. Roll on Book 2...
Afraid of newspapers? Can't read comics unless they're shackled by a cover? Well let your fears be flung from a window on high, as the fine ol' pups of Mr Sheltons head have left their papery confines to rest happily in this lovely A4 slice of hardback fun (though still in a papery confine incase you think this to be printed on slender leather). A great treat for kiddies of all ages, especially if a good ye olde noir detective biscuit is what you yearn. Told with a great sense of humour and with beautiful art through out, you'll happily do the flat foot waltz for many a page. Highly worth it.
