Review: The O.D.D. Squad: Rise of Invisidog

The O.D.D. Squad: Rise of Invisidog is the story of animals fighting crime! 

Enter emerging superhero Invisidog, motorbike-riding Captain Quack, and water-based Detective Octopus.

The trouble with these crime fighters is they've each got a weakness. 

Invisidog discovers that being invisible isn't always helpful for superheroes.

He can't be seen, which can be an advantage but sometimes it's also a disadvantage.

Meanwhile Captain Quack and Detective Octopus have problems of their own, like the fact Octopus is water bound - or is he?

The super villains they're fighting are the Trouble Gang led by Captain Bad, a bearded, tattooed part-robot.

Can three very different crime fighters work together to defeat Captain Bad and the Trouble Gang?

This is a wacky story featuring a bunch of equally wacky characters, and a whole lot of imagination. You'll have to read right to the very end to discover what O.D.D. stands for (unless you can guess before then).

Colourful, highly illustrated, and packed with twists and turns, The O.D.D. Squad: Rise of Invisidog will be enjoyed by readers who like comic/graphic novel style stories loaded with toilet humour and other jokes.
