Synopsis: Miss Tilney has gotten her first big assignment as a reporter. All she has to do is interview accused mass murderer, Lord Beowulf Harwood. She has a strong hunch that he is innocent of the accusations and is set on finding out the truth.
Review: Fans of period dramas, Steampunk style, and mysteries will instantly fall in love with this comic. The artwork is beautiful to look at. Its detail makes each panel pop, while the grainy colouring brings to mind the look of a Victorian era newspaper. The story immediately caught my interest. Seeing the struggle Miss Tilney has in being taken seriously as a female reporter is something every woman can relate to. She handles each situation with a befitting intellect, grace, and intuition. The cliffhanger at the end of this book makes me look forward to the next edition. While my heart was still racing from the ending to the graphic part of this book, there was more as the reader has the opportunity to learn about Lord Harwood in a beautifully written excerpt from his life.
I give The Trials and Tribulations of Miss Tilney 5 Stars. (If I could, I would give it more than that!! This is my favourite comic to date. )
The first edition of The Trials And Tribulations of Miss Tilney will be available through Antarctic-Press in July.
