Douglas Adams' holistic detective Dirk Gently has his first two comic book adventures collected here. Containing two stand-alone series, enjoy A Spoon Too Short and The Interconnectedness of All Kings. But that's not all! Also includes bonus material showing a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the DIRK GENTLY TV show.

In A Spoon Too Short, Dirk finds himself investigating a bizarre case of poaching, dumbstruck tourists, and the inner membranes of a rhinoceros’ nose.

In The Interconnectedness of All Kings, 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, golden cell phones, and copycat killers. All this in a new town seemingly incapable of making even a single proper cup of tea.
Arvind Ethan David, is a Malaysian-born British film producer, graduate of Oxford Univeristy, and the founder of Slingshot Productions. He is best known for producing David Baddiel’s The Infidel in 2010.

David also won Best Adaptation at the 2007 LA Weekly Theater Awards for Dirk, based on Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency by Douglas Adams.
