"Never has there been a more seamless merging of a TV show and a title that was being published before the show started airing. Dirk doesn’t look like Samuel Barnett, who plays Dirk on the show, but rather than start over and discard past issues altogether, Salmon of Doubt incorporates comics Dirk and his assistant, Sally with TV Dirk and his assistant, Todd (played on the show by Elijah Wood)." –The Geeked Gods
