GoodCopBadCop is a crime novel from 2000AD writer Jim Alexander, with a cover by Alex Ronald, with a twist. It’s a modern crime take on Jekyll and Hyde where both ‘good cop’ and ‘bad cop’ are the same person.
GoodCopBadCop was originally released as a Graphic Novel, which went on to win the True Believers Comics Awards. The novel delves deeper into the psychological trappings, black humour and surrealist overtones that made the title such a hit with readers.
“It really gets into the gut(s) and mind(s) of the main character,” says Jim, an award-winning writer who has worked for TV (Metal Hurlant Chronicles) and for DC (Batman 80-Page Giant, Birds of Prey) and Marvel (Uncanny Origins, Spectacular Spider-Man). GoodCopBadCop is his debut novel.
“This is not a story about a good man turned bad, or a bad man turned good,” Jim continues. ‘Both good and bad arrived at the same time.”
