The Incredible Adventures of Dog Mendonça and Pizza Boy

Filipe Melo and Juan Cavia. Dark Horse, $12 trade paper (112p) ISBN 978-1-59582-938-2
During a wave of nightly child abductions in a monster-infested Lisbon, pizza delivery boy Eurico discovers that his company-owned motor scooter is stolen. Desperate to retrieve it, Eurico enlists the help of Dog Mendonça, Occult Detective, and his assistants, Pazuul (who looks like a little girl, but is really a demon that was kicked out of hell) and a chatty severed gargoyle head. Together they try to clean up the messes of the gargoyles-gone-bad and monsters who continually break “the code,” disgracing the city. Eurico is apprehensive that the crime will be solved quickly as Dog and his team guide him through the of the city, discovering Nazi zombies busily working on evil schemes, extraterrestrials, and other setbacks. Glow-in-the-dark imagery set against a haunting background of nightlife provides the perfect backdrop for this nocturnal adventure. First written in Portuguese as a screenplay based on the writer’s favorite sci-fi films of the 1980s, this story provides a nice new twist on some familiar elements. Ages 14–up. (May)■
