Exclusive Excerpt: InvestiGators by John Patrick Green

They investigate things. They wear vests. They are alligators. The Mango and Brash are the stars of the most ridiculous (and I mean that in a good way) graphic novel I’ve read in a while: InvestiGators. If you’re looking for some crime-fighting of the goofiest order, look no further.

Today I have an exclusive excerpt of the book, coming on February 25th, 2020.

Here’s a bit more about InvestiGators, from the publisher:

Meet the InvestiGators. With their gadgets, know-how, and super-fast transportation system (they flush themselves down toilets to speed through the sewers!), Mango and Brash are the scourge of the super-villain landscape! As vest-wearing employees of the Special Undercover Investigation Teams, they solve all kinds of mysteries and frequently butt heads with their archnemesis: a former agent known as Crackerdile.
