The light works, the gravity works. Everything else we have to take our chances with…
After writing all the many & conflicting versions of the legendary Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, beloved author Douglas Adams created Dirk Gently: a detective with a belief in the fundamental interconnectedness of all things, a unique relationship with the laws of probability and physics, and a love of cats and pizza.
In his first-ever comic series, Dirk has been forced to leave his beloved England behind, coming to the too-sunny, too-cheery, and altogether too-bizarre-even-for-Dirk city of San Diego, California, where he gets embroiled in three separate (or are they?) cases involving reincarnated Egyptians, copycat killers and insane zoo animals. All this in a new town seemingly incapable of making even a single proper cup of tea… “The Interconnectedness of All Kings” begins here courtesy of Chris Ryall (Zombies vs Robots) and Tony Akins (Fables)!
