    1. Mark Lawrence on said:

      Alan Moore is a genius and his work's widely known through the movies it spawned: Watchmen, V for Vendetta, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen etc - some of them a tribute to the original, some a desecration. None, I understand, receiving Moore's blessings. I even read that he's never watched any of them - which shows colossal self-restraint!In any event, as a long term reader of 2000AD comic (I started with issue 1 in 1977) one of my early introductions to Moore's work was this lesser known seri [...]

      I originally read every tale in this collection in very cheap newspapers that a distributor I worked for ordered from the UK. I was always delighted to find artwork by Brian Bolland on the Judge Dread tales, but this seemingly slight set of stories by Moore is both the funniest and most whimsical work he would ever produce.

    3. Neville Ridley-smith on said:

      Having read this 20 years ago, I wasn't sure how it was going to hold up. The cover didn't give me any confidence. However, after a bit of a slow start, things really start clicking about half way through. This stuff is funny. I actually laughed out loud on the train a couple of times.

      I'm A sucker of Moore's works. This is another proof that the man is a genius.

    5. Jamie Sigal on said:

      This collection was much funnier than I was expecting, although I don't know why I was expecting it to be less funny considering it's an Alan Moore penned comic-strip - I guess I wasn't expecting the material to still be poignant, but then again, war and violence never really do get old, do they?I will say to the negative that this wasn't the best reproduction of the original material, I assume because they were working from the original, poorly-aged prints or something, because it had no busine [...]

    6. D.M. on said:

      I'm a sucker for only a handful of comic authours, and Moore is one of them. Unfortunately, in the huge pile of stuff he's written, there are those things that feel like he did them in his spare time. This is one of those.Granted, he was a much younger man (and a much less experienced writer) when he did these stories. I suspect, however, that's less to blame for my dislike of the collection than that this is 2000 AD fodder, and really just the sort of thing bookish British males seem unable to [...]

    7. Julian on said:

      Imagine Dennis the Menace and Gnasher. Imagine them a bit older, and alien. And imagine them if they had access to thermonuclear warheads. That just begins to give you an idea of D.R. & Quinch, the totally crazed comic from the outset of Alan Moore's career. Okay, it doesn't have the depth and sophistication of Moore's later work, with none of the characters really emerging as real in any sense, but it charges by at such an amazing pace that you just won't notice. In fact, my only real compl [...]

      This book is quite fun. DR and Quinch are two sociopathic college kids from the future who go around blowing things up, killing people and causing trouble. Kinda like the Dirty pair, but without the good intentions (and bikinis!) They join the army, fall in love, and go to Hollywood (the planet not the city). I got this from the library and don't think I'll bother buying my own copy but I am glad I've read it.

    9. Unsung Stories on said:

      Silly, bombastic, celebrating the sociopathic and generally providing the brash sort of comedy that we've come to know and love from the 2000AD world. For those not familiar with 2000AD who are expecting Moore's more cerebral stuff (Watchmen, V etc), this ain't that. I thought Pulger looked lovely in the dress.

    11. Loyd on said:

      D.R. & Quinch was an early British comic by writer Alan Moore and artist Alan Davis, published by 2000 A.D. back in 1986. D.R. & Quinch is a kind of sci-fi Laurel and Hardy team with a dash of violence and totally non-social behavior. It's clever and eye-popping, but not quite up to the lofty heights of Moore's later work.

    12. Simon on said:

      Inspired, like so much of the early (and current)output of 2000AD magazinegenuinely funny, and intelligent at the same time.DR and Quinch are a couple of teenage alien shitkickers from rich families, who cause mayhem on a grand scale - has to be seen to be believed

    13. Christine on said:

      1980s 2000AD cheerfully nihilistic Alan Moore. Fun to read for a bit if you're in the right mood but perhaps a little repetitive all in one volume: the two protagonists are violent and incite chaos and end up OK, repeat. Recommendation: intersperse with other reading!

    14. Travis on said:

      All ofAlan Moore's duo of alien con men/ Delinquents short stories are collected. Wildly odd and entertaining as they join the army, the cub scouts, fall in love, blow stuff up, go to Hollywood and cause several deaths.Very funny stuff from back in the days before Moore got so serious

    15. Amal El-Mohtar on said:

      This was rollicking and relentless and kind of terrifyingly awful in a fun way? It's like if Messrs. Croup and Vandermar were antisocial alien college students with no need for secrecy or silence.Alan Davis' art, you guys. SO freakin' great.

    16. eHawk on said:

      While I appreciated the tongue in cheek random violence of these characters, there was something a little too blunt about it for my tastes. Some of my favorite comics dwell in the deranged, but something about this felt a little too forced and juvenile.

    17. Hamish on said:

      Not as funny as I wanted it to be. It's got a good premise, but never really inches past "mildly amusing". However, Alan Davis drew it so, and I will say this about every Alan Davis book I ever review, it looks really good.

    18. Neven on said:

      This isn't exactly embarrassingly bad or morally abhorrent, but it's such lightweight fare for Moore, it barely has any teeth or brains to it. Published around the same time as the very likeable and interesting Halo Jones, it doesn't come close in terms of sheer writing quality.

    19. David on said:

      I've never been fond of the 200ad Alan Moore, any more than the early DC sci fi short stories.

    20. Rich on said:

      Somewhat entertaining - obviously an early effort by Moore, but fun in his very off-kilter way.

    21. Nicholas on said:

      Rather one note. Don't get me wrong, it's Alan Moore and Alan Davis so it's a damn good note, but still.

    22. Martin Taylor on said:

      Loved it when it originally came out in 2000 AD & it still stands up quite well now!

    23. Lynne on said:

      I'd forgotten just how nonsensical these two are. Very silly! However, the extremely small text in some panels made it a bit difficult to read at times. Nice wee blast from the past though!

    24. Dan Ladle on said:

      Ridiculous humour from the wonderful imagination of Alan Moore."Something Something Oranges Something"!!!
