''Fish Police'' ran for its first 12 issues as a black-and-white comic under Moncuse's own Fishwrap imprint, which was also responsible for the first issue of ''ComicBook/SamAndMaxFreelancePolice''. Comico then picked it up, reprinting issues 1-4 in a trade, the rest in color, and running new issues (also in color) up to #17. Comico also printed Issue #0, a sort of rough draft of issues 1-5, and a special prequel issue, before going bankrupt. The series ended up at Apple for issues #18-#26, where it returned to black-and-white. Much later, MarvelComics ran color reprints of issues 1-6. So at the very least, the ''beginning'' of the story is easy to find.

A black and white comic series created by Steven Moncuse in TheEighties. The story centers on Inspector Gill solving crimes. The big one involves a drug called Hairballs, an organization called S.Q.U.I.D. and someone's niece being held captive. After that, things get kinda complicated.

Many of the Comico issues included {{Guest Strip}}s called ''Fish Shticks'', still written by Moncuse but drawn by other artists (including one by [[ComicBook/UsagiYojimbo Stan Sakai]]). After the original series ended, Apple ran six issues of original ''Fish Shticks''.

Shticks''. Moncuse did mostly inking and cover art for Marvel and Creator/DarkHorseComics before retiring in 2000. He pulled ''Fish Police'' out of the vaults in 2011, when Creator/IDWPublishing approached him to reprint the first four issues, in their original black-and-white form, in another trade. Moncuse drew new art for the cover, and according to [[http://www.comicbookresources.com/?page=article&id=29977 an interview]], decided to start a new series set 20 years ahead of the previous one. Nothing has come of the reboot, but in March 2013, he wrote a new ''Fish Police'' story for ''Dark Horse Presents'' issue 22.
