Chicagoland Detective Agency 3: Night of the Living Dogs

By Trina Robbins
Illustrated by Tyler Page

Continual requests from librarians for mysteries., cast reflects the diversity of the Chicago area.

The word is out that Megan, Raf, and Rafs talking dog Bradley are the team to go to when even weirder things than usual start happening in Chicagoland. This time the Chicagoland Detective Agency takes danger in hand (and paw) to track down a mysteriously missing puppy and an even more mysterious pack of dogs that only show up once a month. Bradley can tell from the start: it's more than a simple case of stray pets ... and much more than a stray case of fullmoon transmogrification! It's going to take one part folklore, two parts high-tech, and big dose of Megan-style haiku-ing to save their friend's little brother from bad influences and the world's worst case of doggy breath.

  • Combines mysteries with science fiction with graphic novel format.
  • A more modern approach to the graphic novel mystery than Papercutz has taken.
  • Written by Wonder Woman writer, 60s underground comix groundbreaker, and comics historian Trina Robbins.
