Guards! Guards! A Discworld Graphic Novel was adapted by Stephen Briggs and illustrated by Graham Higgins.


'Of all the cities in all the world* it could have flown into, it flew into mine...'

A seventy-foot long fire-breathing dragon is wanted to help with enquiries into the identity of the night time prowler who is turning the citizens of Ankh-Morpork into something resembling small charcoal biscuits, and the only thing that can prevent the inevitable destruction of the city are the drunken and world-weary Captain Vimes and his forgotten police force- an overweight and cowardly sergeant, a corporal who just about qualifies as a human, and the Discworld's tallest dwarf...

Guards! Guards! has been astutely reduced from Terry Pratchett's best selling novel so it will fit into those nice little speech bubbles by Stephen Briggs and illustrated by Graham Higgins to make the pages look more interesting.

*The world, of course, being the Discworld, which, as everybody knows, is flat and rides through space on the back of four elephants who stand on the shell of an enormous turtle.
