Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

George and Harold have created a new hero who digs into deception, claws after crooks, and rolls over robbers. When Greg the police dog and his cop companion are injured on the job, a life-saving surgery changes the course of history, and Dog Man is born. With the head of a dog and the body of a human, this heroic hound has a real nose for justice. But can he resist the call of the wild to answer the call of duty?

"Tree House Comix Proudly Presents."

George and Harold create a new comic book hero in Dog Man, a crimefighter with the head of a police dog and the body of a policeman, who faces off against his archnemesis Petey the cat.

Horn Book Review

Color by Jose Garibaldi. George and Harold (of Captain Underpants fame) return to create a new comic book, with childlike illustrations, handwriting, and humor, as well as "flip-o-ramas" and angry teacher intrusions. After a bombing gone awry, an operation--a canine head sewn onto a cop's body--renders the ultimate crime-fighter. This unlikely premise provides excellent fodder, and the book operates smoothly within its own logic. (c) Copyright 2017. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
