Format: Paperback
D. R. and Quinch originally appeared in a British comic book/magazine called "2000 AD". (The same publication that spawned "Judge Dredd", among others.) It was written by Alan Moore, one of the better comic book writers of all time. (He is known for such comics as "From Hell" and "League of Extrordinary Gentlemen" (both made into films), as well as "The Watchmen", making "Swamp Thing" into an interesting comic, among others.
This is one of his lesser known works.
D. R. and Quinch are a couple of alien juvenile delinquents that make anyone out of the "Wild Bunch" look like Prozac munching vegitarians. They maim and kill entire civilizations just for the fun of it. However, the destruction is so over the top and the targets of satire so broad that it is not just mayhem for the sake of mayhem.
Alan Davis' art adds to the atmosphere. His aliens are all bizzare creatures that have traits that you will still recognize. (There is a pretty savage parody of Marlin Brando in one of the stories.)
Highly recommended. I am glad these stories are still in print.

dr and quinch Sept. 18 2010
By Dada g - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good for Alan Moore fans. A humourous stroll through the minds of two psychopaths who reject the sanctioned madness otherwise known as society. Moore always adds an interesting twist to the mundane realities that surround us. I wish it could have been longer but it collects all his work with these two characters. Good quality print but I somehow felt it was too short and thus a tad overpriced.

Cute little stories from true masters July 2 2010
By Kid Kyoto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Alan Moore (Watchmen) and Alan Davis (Excalibur) are true masters of comics, genius creators whose work is a cut above everyone else's. This book reprints a humor strip they did for the UK's 2000 AD comic in the early 80s.

D.R. and Quinch at two intergalactic hoodlums who start their careers by destroying the Earth in a practical joke. They go on to join the army, take over Hollywood and go girl crazy.

I got a chuckle out of the book but not much more, it's a fun little read but not all that memorable.

This a fairly good comic. It does go a little crazy at times. I bought it bacause I am an Alan Moore fan. I do really like his League of Extraordinary Gentleman.
