New York Times bestselling creator George Mann and artist Dan Boultwood, as well as letterer Rob Steen, are back with another Newbury & Hobbes book , and this time it’s a graphic novel.
It’s available April 30th, and we’ve got a preview of this steampunk saga, entitled Newbury & Hobbes: The Undying, with some solid, sensational art from Boultwood, which makes Mann’s script sing out from the printed page. Well, digital files in this case, but you get the idea.
Welcome to the bizarre and dangerous world of Victorian London, a city teetering on the edge of revolution. Airships soar in the skies over the city, ground trains rumble through the streets and clockwork automatons serve the bustling public. But beneath this shiny veneer of progress lurks a sinister side. Queen Victoria is kept alive by a primitive life-support system while her agents Sir Maurice Newbury and Miss Veronica Hobbes, face plague revenants, murderous peers, mechanical beasts, tentacled leviathans, reanimated pygmies, and an encounter with Sherlock Holmes, in this brand new adventure for the detective team.
