    One thought on “Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: The Interconnectedness of All Kings”

    1. Hmm, not as good as I was hoping for. Much like the new Star Wars, whether you love it or hate it, it's more Star Wars. Dirk Gently Volume 1 plays to our love of nostalgia. Douglas Adams is dear to my heart, and the man knew intelligent comedy like very few others. And that's the biggest thing this volume is so severely lacking and in dire need of, more comedy. There's less a mystery than a random (read: holistic) unfolding of events that don't surprise as much as just happen. Don't get me wrong [...]

    2. I had a lot of fun with this book. It's ultimately all about the humor, so YMMV more than most times.fedpeaches/2016/0

    3. 'Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency: The Interconnectedness of All Kings' by Chris Rydall is a coninuation of the series started by Douglas Adams. This time it's in graphic novel form and it was a fun ride.What do an Egyptian king who hungers for humans, a couple who are recreating famous serial killings, and a homeless man with a golden cell phone have in common? Nothing, unless you are Dirk Gently, an odd detective who believes everything is interconnected. He lands in San Diego and appro [...]

    4. Since the sad untimely passing of Douglas AdamsThe creator of Dirk Gently Andhis lesser known worksThe Hitchhiker's Guide To The GalaxyAll the fans of this off beat comedically amazing series have hadwas the short lived TV series from The UK.This new series changes that.Ryall clearly has a deep love for the original books.As all of Adam's zany brilliance shines through.A wonderful start to what I hope is a long long series.

    5. "2016 promises to be the year of Dirk Gently: with more comics, stage shows, and a new TV series in the work." - Arvind Ethan DavidHmm, the art is in this trade is not to my tastes. Very 20-30 years ago - so if they were going for that, well done. If not, I don't know. There could be a lot less gutter and more movement. Less panels, okay? Also, less mummies. I think I've watched this movie before

    6. It’s kind of missing the magic of the original Douglas Adams’s Dirk Gently stories. It was kind of, well, boring. I didn’t laugh at all. I may have smiled once. And the art wasn’t anything special. All in all, having read the novels, it was kind of disappointing. Not recommended, except maybe to the most completist collectors.Thanks to NetGalley, Diamond, and IDW for a copy in return for an honest review.

    7. It's not good form to call out underwhelming climaxes then perform one yourself. I consider Dirk Gently to be my first Doctor, following from Douglas Adams creating Dirk out of an unproduced Doctor Who script, and me happening upon the book on a sidewalk one day during high school. All in all, I enjoyed following this book from issue to issue, but the ending left me cold. I look forward to more Dirk in comics and broadcast, though!

    8. Like most other Dirk Gently things I have seen and read that weren't by Douglas Adams, this misses the mark. It goes for the 'wackiness' angle, but doesn't quite capture the right feel.

    9. As a fan of Douglas Adams and aware of the Dirk Gently series (mostly because of the BBC series which I thought was brilliant) I find this fun if lacking the subversive humour or intellectual genius that the originator of the character had.First off, the humour, although I did chuckle a couple of times, was mostly put aside to the plot, that I have to say would not have looked out of place in a more actual supernatural oriented Scooby doo episode (although it would be a bit less violent) and mis [...]

    10. It's not quite up to the level of the first book, but I found myself pleasantly surprised by how well this book captures the loopy coincidences and truly holistic feel of Dirk Gently. A stolen piece of luggage ends up connecting vacationing serial killers, a mummy, and a souler powered cell phone. It's a wild story, and Dirk is right in the center of it, bumbling through to a solution (or is it bumbling?) while pulling into his wake a variety of new and old friends. There's nothing completely la [...]

    11. This is the first Dirk Gentley book I have read. There's this rather weird detective and his associates/assistants. He seems to stumble into solutions more than actually work them out. In this case he has to deal with two ancient Egyptians who have traveled to the present.One of them is pretty cool. The other is a megalomaniac who considers himself to be a great king. He also has the ability to take life force from people. There's a lot of strange things that happen but to me the story was rathe [...]

    12. Drag Dirk to Southern California. Serial copycats. Royal burials. Ancient Egyptian named Craig. CRAIG? (No, he does not have a list. Someone else does.) The return of Kate and Reg (but not Thor).Doesn't really give as much bang for the buck, and Dirk has become more sociopathic. I enjoyed the BBC version a lot more (and there he was MUCH more sociopathic, and Gilks less obnoxious than in the books.)

    13. Liked this one a bit better than A spoon too short. Mummies, serial killers, and the running gags of the drones following him and Hamisch trying to be his assistant I loved this one. Every other page was cracking me up, while keeping the plot quick and sharp.And my favorite is the business-"Gumshoes & Tea LeavesWhere to find great tea? Mystery solved!"I wish there was a place like this in my town!

    14. It is smug and self-satisfied really, in a sort of post-modern way that didn't work especially well in the first two novels and doesn't work very well here, either. The plot holds some interest and there are some neat panels but the whole thing reads like a filler episode of David Tennant era Doctor Who, minus the spaceship.

    15. Rolig läsning, men tyckte nog mest om den för att jag gillar tv-serien. Ett plus för absurd handling och ett minus för avsaknaden av Elijah Wood.

    16. Ok, non è Douglas Adams, ma è bello ritrovare Dirk (e ora che so che esiste una serie tv cadrò nel tunnel dell'addiction).

    17. Dirk Gently, the detective hero of two great fantasy novels by Douglas Adams, seems well suited to live on in any number of alternate contradictory versions, like Sherlock Holmes and Philip Marlowe. Dirk is a self-described 'holistic detective', whose methodology is largely dependent on the interconnectedness of all things. Hence when he is asked to find a lost cat in London, his clients should not be surprised to find that his billed expenses include a prolonged stay in the Bahamas. Dirk is dis [...]

    18. There's already a sense in my mind of Dirk Gently being stretched too far for the likes of Douglas Adams – but let's face it, he killed off H2G2 with his needless sequels. We've had the original books, the radio recordings of them, and now we're on to a second TV series – and this series of original graphic novels. This one is OK, but didn't make me laugh – even when obvious in-jokes arose ("42?", someone splutters when they have reason to). The story is risible – resurrected Egyptian te [...]

    19. An absolute blast. I have to say, I haven't read Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently series yet, but this comic book was super good. Adams could very well have written it. It is funny, witty, smart and sarcastic. It feels a lot like Doctor Who in its best days (not the crap they're showing now), Dirk even looks a lot like David Tennant's Doctor. By the way, the artwork is great, too. Honestly, my only complaint about this series is that the font is a tad too small.Even though I have never read previous b [...]

    20. Read all my reviews on urlphantomhiveoklikes I was previously unfamiliar with Douglas Adams' Dirk Gently (although of course I've read The Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy & The Restaurant at the End of the Universe), but I found the idea of all things being somehow connected intriguing, so I wanted to give it a try. To say it nicely, I was seriously underwhelmed by this graphic novel. It didn't do anything for me. The story was weird and random, sure, which to some extend I had expected. Bu [...]

    21. Artwork: 3Story: 2Chris Ryall is clearly a huge Douglas Adams fanboy and did his best to honour his creation but this adaptation just lacked teeth. It was far too sanitised for my liking. The Dirk Gently that I think of is more stridently obnoxious, boorish, manipulative, cynical and devious than the pale fare that was offered up here. This Dirk Gently was merely a buffoon. The story never succeeded in recreating the surrealism of Gently's world, despite the novels being eminently translatable t [...]

    22. A lovely homage, but it suffers in the shadow of Adams' books. A fun little plot, just enough of the silliness to give it the right flavor, but it is too hurried to really world-build. As such we are left with a procedural that mocks the tropes of procedurals, with every little detail feeding the pursuit of the end goal and the tidy conclusion. Art is well-executed, but nothing extraordinary. A fine effort.

    23. Loved it. This was my first Dirk Gently book after watching a Dirk Gently TV episode, and thus was my introduction to the series. I've always loved mysteries, and this lighthearted romp was an excellent deconstruction of numerous tropes. I'll be reading the original canon soon! Keep up the good work, guys.

    24. Not as good as the Adams novels, but then, that's probably too much to hope for. Still pretty entertainingr more of my thoughts on this and other books, check out my blog: readerhayworth/

    25. No, this is not Dirk Gently!Nothing like the original, no soul.Doesn't sit comfortably in California, nor in cartoon form for me.I was given a digital copy of this book by the publisher Diamond Book Distributors via Net Galley in return for an honest unbiased review.
