"D.R. & Quinch is a comedy comic strip about two delinquent alien drop-outs. It was created by Alan Moore and Alan Davis for the British weekly comics anthology 2000 AD. It first appeared in 1983.
D.R. and Quinch started as two characters in a one-off Future Shock in 2000 AD titled D.R. and Quinch Have Fun On Earth. The strip was the tale of how two alien teenage students Waldo "D.R." (for "Diminished Responsibility") Dobbs, a scheming criminal mastermind (who with his pointed ears, green flesh, and furrowed chin, resembled a Skrull from the Marvel Comics universe), and Ernest Errol Quinch, his muscular purple skinned companion in crime, have influenced Earth's history in various anarchic ways. They were inspired by the National Lampoon characters O.C. and Stiggs.
Initially meant to only appear once, they proved so popular that a two part story ran in issues 350 and 351. This led to the strip running until issue 359 in several adventures. During these we see the pair drafted and D.R. gains a girlfriend, the insane Crazy Chrissie.
The pair's last strip, D.R. and Quinch Go to Hollywood ran from issues 363 to 367 and was considered to be Moore and Davis's finest D.R. and Quinch story. However the Moore/Davis partnership was undergoing strain due to Moore refusing permission for their Captain Britain work to be reprinted, and the pair's last D.R. and Quinch work together was in the 2000 AD Sci-Fi Special in 1985.
In 1986 Titan Books released a collection of all D.R. and Quinch stories from 2000 AD called D.R. and Quinch's Totally Awesome Guide To Life. It became one of Titan's best selling books in their lines of 2000 AD reprints. The book went out of print several times and it has since been collected as The Complete D.R. and Quinch (ISBN 1-84023-345-1) in 2001. The stories have remained popular with fans and are considered the best example of Alan Moore's humorous work, as well as being praised for the artwork of Alan Davis." (www.wikipedia.org)
