Sabrina Cotugno’s webcomic The Glass Scientists, is a brilliant and beautiful love letter to Victoriana and the Universal Monsters.
Dr. Henry Jekyll is an illustrious silver-tongued socialite with a secret or two, housing all manner of eccentric creators in his Society for Arcane Science. After rescuing the rogue werewolf Jasper Kaylock, whose zero-budget home-made cures for lycanthropy have produced…’unhelpful’ results, from the constabulary (and pitchfork-wielding townsfolk of London): He must prepare his rag-tag rabble of rogues for a grand exhibition, to show that they’re productive folk and hardly dangerous after all.
…What could possibly go wrong?
The art, tone and colours of this comic suit it perfectly – everything is so drenched in light, glitter and shine that you have to revel in the marvels of Dr. Jekyll’s ambitions. And when gears shift and things get dark, there is no escaping the dread that literally everything is about to go down in flames/frost/plants/ghosts/claws/knives ect.
And at less than 100 pages so far, this relatively new read is of an easy enough length to catch up on, but long enough for a darn good binge. Check it out now before the twists and turns get away from you!
