Victorian England. In Yorkshire, several men and horses working on a railway line have been killed. The police suspect some kind of wild beast.

Darwin Diaries was an interesting read with a unique premise and beautiful but graphic artwork. I appreciated the palette and also really liked that the artwork had a unique and interesting palette of natural browns and reds.

The historical detail on the men's costumes and looks was perfect - very 1850s. Yet I cannot fathom why the women's costumes were all pigeon fronted Gibson Girl frocks from the turn of the century -

Excellent illustrations and a compelling opening to this series.

I must admit I don't read a great many comics but the context of evolution and Darwin's rise to fame drew me in.

Gruesome in places. This murder mystery set among a backdrop of industrialisation, (the rise of the railway) sees Darwin turned detective, by appointment of the Prime Minister.

It's fascinating to see Darwin being forced to re-consider his theory of evolution as the beasts at the heart of the work don't fit into his under
Comme il s'agit du premier tome d'une série à venir il est difficile de juger complètement. Ce premier tome est bon mais il s'agit d'une mise en place.

En tout cas, l'atmosphère est bonne et les meutres pas ragoutant du tout.

Je me demande si cela va virer vers le para-normal ou pas.
