Chicagoland Detective Agency 5: The Bark in Space

By Trina Robbins
Illustrated by Tyler Page

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

In this interstellar caper, Raf, Megan, and dog pal Bradley are abducted by aliens from the planet Farf Ill. These are not your ordinary aliens-they're intelligent canines who can speak, just like Bradley! But when their princess goes missing, they need help from planet Earth's home team-Rafs gizmos, Megan's eye for clues, and Bradley's gumshoe instincts-to track her down. Once the mystery is solved, will the Farfians' high-tech doggy lifestyle be too tempting for Bradley to pass up, or will his loyalty to his humans prove more powerful than the chance to live where it's the humans who are the pets?

  • 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.
