The Continentals: Mystery, adventure--And murder!!!
« on: September 04, 2009, 01:38:47 PM »

  I didn't quite know where to put this, but I wanted to tell you guys about my new murder/mystery webcomic "The Continentals". It's for the folks who like a little murder, mystery, and adventure with their steam punky webcomics. LOL! Here's the plot:

  1889. Barely a year after the mysterious Jack the Rippers murderous rampage and equally mysterious disappearance the city of Mansfordshire, England is shaken by a series of brutal "mangling" murders that plunge the city into an abyss of fear.

  Investigating the case, Continental Operatives Jeffrey Tiffen Smythe and his partner the gender bending adventuress lady Fiona Fiziwigg uncover the threads that bind the murderer, his victims, the highest echelons of society, it's lowest dregs, and even the police officers investigating the case in a tangled web of mystery, adventure, intrigue, and murder that is like Sherlock Holmes, mixed with equal parts of the 60's tv show "The Avengers", with a dash of James Bond for flavor.

Wow. A lot has hapened since my last post in this thread. Most importantly The Continentals scored a publishing deal with Transfuzion Publishing. The webcomic is going to be collected in a series of trade paperback editions and ultimately released as a complete graphic novel. You can read about it on the Transfuzion website here:

And there have been a BIG BUNCH of updates to the comic since my last time here as well. So I'm hoping you'll all come and check us out. Here's the teaser to the latest update:


"HOME IS WHERE THE HORROR IS!!!"

Lord Ashton's terrifying rough ride ends without his life coming to one. But his dark stalker isn't finished with him just yet. Oh no--Not just yet!
