Waiting on Wednesday

"Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine to spotlight an upcoming release that we're excited about. This week I'm waiting on Ruse: The Victorian Guide to Murder by Mark Waid and Jackson Guice.

Renowned as the Victorian world's greatest detective, Simon Archard is the most intelligent of men. But when he crosses paths with the mysterious and enchanting Emma Bishop, has the smartest man in the world met his equal? Brought to readers by superstar writer Mark Waid (Amazing Spider-Man) and red-hot artist Mirco Pierfederici (Tron: Original Movie Adaptation), this is the new comic series that'll leave you breathless. (Summary by Goodreads)

I'm quite excited about this, I just finished the first volume and it was AMAZING! Beautiful artwork, fantastic characters, awesome plot. I thought the fantasy attributes were a little strange in the original, but from what I hear those will be gone in this revival of the series. Yay! I also have to admit that I L-O-V-E mystery graphic novels.

Ruse: The Victorian Guide to Murder comes out Oct. 5.
