A great start to what is to be an annual series.
The Soho Devil! is one of award-winning Christopher Fowler's fine short Bryant & May stories. It is beautifully presented by the well-known graphic illustator Keith Page. The lead Bryant & May short story here, and a shorter bonus untold second tale, The Severed Claw, are perfect examples of the many excellent Bryant & May text novels and shorts.
Also included in this hardback is an essay How to Invent a Mystery Series and several othe

Think those of you who read my reviews may have sussed I'm a massive Christopher Fowler fan- so, has this graphic novel changed my views?

I never read or look at comic books, but this is nice to have if you are a fan of the series. The two stories in it are pretty good and I am sure they will get better as more are released.
