Steve May‘s illustrations for Gareth P. Jones’ latest comic caper, Attack of the Alien Dung, fit perfectly with this hilarious, action-packed adventure. This is the first in theĀ Pet Defenders series published by Stripes and is about secret agents with a difference.

This is TOP SECRET! Did you know that Earth is under constant alien attack? The Pet Defenders is a secret society of domestic animals, dogs, cats, rabbits and rodents. While their humans are off at school or work, they keep the Earth safe. Now that you know all this, it’s important that you don’t because humans tend to panic and are likely to blow up the very planet the Pet Defenders are trying to defend so they need you to forget and just make sure you carry on as normal. Their specially trained seagulls will take care of that with their Forget-Me-Plop! SSSPLAT!

Secret agent Biskit the dog discovers his new partner Mitzy is a cat and is not best pleased at first. Even though cats and dogs usually don’t mix, they must put their differences aside as the safety of Planet Earth is at stake and humans MUST NOT know the truth! Their job is to save Earth from a cluster of cow pats which have flown into town and are whipping up quite a stink… Move over Mulder and Scully, it’s time for Biskit and Mitzy to kick some serious alien butt!
