A Steampunk Supernatural Mystery
The Boston Metaphysical Society is a brand new six issue mini-series web comic. Created by Madeleine Holly-Rosing with art by Emily Hu, this comic is one of a kind. The description for the book goes as follows:
"The year is 1895....An evil from a parallel dimension escaped and now roams the city of Boston.
Our world has developed along the lines of Steampunk technology, but with a modern twist.
Here exists steam driven rudimentary computers and electronics. And dirigibles rule the sky. But with it comes the social and political upheaval as not everyone is comfortable with change. In fact, many people fear it. That fear and the violence that followed caused a psychic rift to puncture the veil of space and time allowing an entity known as "The Shifter" to escape.
And the only people who stand a chance in hell of destroying it are: Samuel Hunter, ex-Pinkerton Detective Caitlin O'Sullivan, Medium and Spirit Photographer and Granville Woods, Scientist Extraordinaire.
They Are The Boston Metaphysical Society."
The comic is easy to read and it catches your attention right off the bat with the writing and the art. The pacing of the book is great for a web comic and honestly, the only thing that I want differently are quicker post for the stories. It's that interesting.
It Post once a week every Thursday. The style of the story is new and fresh, blending cool tech with old school ways almost reminiscent to me of Full Metal Alchemist. Another interesting element of the series are the introductions of historical figures like Harry Houdini and Thomas Edison which will promise to combine science with mystical arts and showmanship.
