While growing up I read about everything I could get my hands on and Dahler & Nicholls reminds me of a few comic collections my grandmother had and brought on some of the feels. It most reminded me of some Marmaduke collections I’d read because of the art style and format (single pane comic installments) and the character of Nicholls made me think of a witless Dick Tracy, but that’s probably because his suit and hat are yellow on the cover.
The humor leans whimsical and into irony so it’s a light-hearted read. The only thing that threw me was the size of the book (8.5 x 11). I thought it was a coloring book when I got it in the mail. There’s no real gripe there—I’m just familiar with a format that’s so much smaller (like a 5 x 8) so it threw me a bit at first, but I’d recommend this title.
Dahler & Nicholls Fight Crime! is a comic book, not in the graphic novel format, but rather the compilation of single page single scene comics. The recurring characters, Dahler and Nicholls are police detectives, inept and somewhat goofy detectives to be sure but not in a way that anyone would reasonably take offense to.
I read this book out of my usual sequence because I felt in need of a chuckle. Dahler & Nicholls Fight Crime! provides them. No heavy messages, no social commentary, just humorous peeks into a comic world.
Not much more to say really. You either like comics or you don't. If you do, Dahler & Nicholls Fight Crime! (Crime Wins) by Dixie J. Whitted will bring a smile. Enjoy!
