Following in the well-loved footsteps of Dog Man, two new goofy detectives are out to do their part to take down crooks and serve justice. This is just the first in a series of several crime-fighting adventures with the InvestiGATORS.
Mango and Brash are INVESTIGATORS, two of S.U.I.T’s (Special Undercover Investigation Teams) top secret agents, and they are following the cookie crumbs to solve their latest mystery. Top baker Gustavo Mustachio, along with his medium-sized oven, has gone missing and his secret recipes are in danger. Not only that, an explosion has rocked the science factory, a secret invention has gone missing and a mysterious hooded-figure wants an exceptionally large cake. And Mango and Brash are, quite literally, on the case…
Sometimes only crime-fighting alligators will do, and in a world full of corruption and confusion Mango and Brash are leading the charge for a better and safer world. These bumbling, vest-wearing gators travel through the sewers as they go about their secret undercover work to rid the city of crime and evil-doers using lots of very exciting spying technology along the way.
A straight-forward hunt for a missing baker becomes a much more complicated case involving a master-of-disguise dinosaur on a crime spree, rogue bakers, sun-struck scientists and a back-from-the-dead radioactive crocodile-come-cracker who is keen to be baked whole again. Somehow, often through none of their own doing, the duo successfully bring down villains, solve various mysteries, stop criminal acts and have an enormous amount of fun along the way.
Delivered in vibrant comic-style panels and brimming with gags and puns this is a very welcome dose of mayhem and madness. Fast-paced fun from first page to last, the slapstick humour, banter, silliness and comedic misunderstandings will leave ribs-well tickled and belly’s aching from laughter. Justice has never been served quite this funny, a fantastically hysterical read for lovers of graphic novels.
