Titan Comics has released a trailer for their upcoming comic book spinoff of Newbury & Hobbes, the steampunk mystery novel series by George Mann. Artist Dan Boultwood joins Mann on bringing the series to comics, and in true comics fashion, resurrecting a dead character. The press release has the details:
The Newbury & Hobbes novel series follows special agents Sir Maurice Newbury and Miss Victoria Hobbes as they traverse the menacing lands of Victorian England, solving extraordinary crimes.
In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the Newbury & Hobbes novels, Titan Comics are publishing installments of a brand-new Newbury & Hobbes prose short story, written by George Mann, in each issue of the new comic series. This new comic series also features the shocking return of Dr. Aubrey Knox – the rogue agent and occultist – who was left for dead in the final pages of The Osiris Ritual, back in 2009.
Hitting stores in September, Newbury and Hobbes #1 features variant covers by Boultwood, Chris Wildgoose, and Arianna Florean. Check out the trailer below:
