Eoin Colfer’s Half Moon Investigations on ROK Comics

ROK Comics is pleased to present a special mobile-formatted adaptation of a new comic strip from Artemis Fowl author Eoin Colfer’s new book, Half Moon Investigations: can you solve the crime of the missing organiser?

The comic, drawn by John Royle, has been published to coincide with the release of Half Moon Investigations in paperback on July 5th. The comic is a preview of the first chapter of the book and the ROK Comic mobile version will be published in four parts once a week, starting Monday 18 June 2007.

Fletcher Moon is a half-pint schoolboy and fully qualified private investigator. Since graduating online, he has solved all sorts of minor mysteries at school and at home. His partial friend (or informer, as Fletcher prefers to call him), always wants to see his badge and always wants to try to get it. When Fletcher starts asking questions about a spate of odd crimes in the town of Lock, it quickly becomes clear that nothing is quite as it seems. And the hunter is about to become the hunted.

Here's the first episode. Episode 2 should be published on Monday 25th June.
