Review quote

"The sense of all-out fun and humour that you get from this book is a clear marker of a book written purely to entertain" Armadillo Magazine 20101214 "Rich in detail and colour, you'll want to go back again and again over every page to see what you missed the first and second time around ... It's pacy, it's funny and it deserves a place on your shelves" Bear Alley 20101028 "It's a deliberately rambling, manic burst of comic energy across it's busy and brightly coloured pages. Lots and lots of fun, lots of silly gags ... a manic, full on adventure serial, heavy on the laughs and with some very nice, suitably kinetic artwork" -- Richard Bruton Forbidden Planet Blog 20100915 "Filled with unique characters, belly-laughing jokes and fantastic illustrations this is an adventure for any crime-busting, comic-loving fan" Scribbler 20110210 "The Etherington Brothers have crafted a fun and action packed story. The story is filled so many memorable characters and great moments. Sid and Rivet make a great team. You never know what is coming next. 9/10" Comic Buzz 20101223show more
