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 complaint, apart from the fact that there’s far too little of it, is that I’d have liked to see a bit more of D.R.’s not-quite girlfriend ‘Crazy Chrissie’, something where I’m sure an older Moore would have obliged.
