Publisher Comments:

Two unlucky, crude private detectives in hilarious and oh-so-offensive misadventures against crime lords, ghosts, and bar brawlers!

Meet Dougie and Ivor, two unlucky and foul-mouthed private investigators whose first case is the very height of outrageous carnage and perverse hilarity! A dead body at their doorstep is just the start of their troubles, as they double-cross a local crimelord, accidentally kill (and zombify) Ivor's irate uncle, anger the hulking thug named Big Billy, and dodge the bullets of Dougie's spurned father-in-law. Will these scoundrels get to the bottom of their first case... or even survive the day? Garth Ennis and John McCrea, the creative team behind Hitman, deliver pages and pages of over-the-top violence and certain-to-offend humor, just the way you like it!

About the Author

A cornerstone of the modern comic industry, Garth Ennis is most easily recognized as the creator of Preacher, one of the best-selling graphic novel series of all time. His full list of writing credits is nothing short of extraordinary; his career highlights include Judge Dredd, Hellblazer, The Demon, Hitman, Punisher, The Pro, War Story, and The Boys. Over the past ten years, Ennis has published numerous acclaimed and fan-favorite projects through Avatar Press, including Dicks, Chronicles Of Wormwood, 303, Streets Of Glory, and the wildly successful Crossed series. He wrote and directed his first film, Stitched, which Avatar Press will continue as an ongoing comic book series illustrated by Mike Wolfer. John McCrea is a comic book artist hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland. Breaking into the comic industry in 1988, he soon partnered with Garth Ennis and gained mainstream success in the American market with such titles as DC Comics' The Demon and Hitman, the latter of which earned the creative team an Eisner Award for "Best Single Issue" in 1999. A versatile sequential artist, McCrea's range encompasses everything from painted realism to cartoony exaggeration, capturing heart-wrenching drama to gritty action and toilet humor.
