After a séance gone horribly wrong, strange men wearing gas masks and rubber suits abduct the aging psychic Orlov the Conjuror, sending his young assistant Molly McHugh racing through the canals of a submerged Manhattan.
As Molly flees her captors through a sunken city full of scavengers, her one hope comes in the form of two strange men: Simon Church, a Victorian-era detective kept alive by clockwork gears and magic, and his assistant, Joe Golem, whose mysterious past is hinted at in dreams of stone and witches.
o The deluxe limited-edition collection features multiple illustrations, an exclusive print signed by the writers, and a handsome slipcase. Limited to 1, 000 copies.
o Features the previously unpublished in print Joe Golem story "Joe Golem and the Copper Girl."
"Joe Golem and the Drowning City is a warm, wicked, frantic tale of noble monsters and monstrous men. Not merely weird and not simply gorgeous, this supernatural steampunk fable is intimate and profound. It is dreadful and sublime." -Cherie Priest (Boneshaker)
