Dirk Gently, created by Douglas Adams and shortly to be the star of his own television series from BBC America, returns to comics in The Salmon of Doubt, brought to you by executive producers of the show Arvind Ethan David and Max Landis.

Plagued by nightmares about a childhood he never had, Dirk returns to Cambridge University to seek the advice of his former tutor, the time-traveling Professor Reg Chronotis. There he discovers that a holistic detective can have more than one past, and his adventures have only just begun...

Featuring favorite characters from the original books as well as the cast from the TV series, including Samuel Barnett and Elijah Wood.


"Dirk Gently: A Spoon Too Short #3 should be in the hands of any Douglas Adams fan, as it has clearly been written by one of his biggest. Go and buy it today." - Flickering Myth (On Dirk Gently: A Spoon Too Short #3) "The fact that this series even exists is a great sign that Adams timeless style of silliness hasnt lost its appeal, and the fact that IDW have actively sought out people who have proven that they know this style inside-and-out only adds to the joy of the matter." - Ross Sweeney, Big Comic Page (on Spoon Too Short #1)
