‘Hellboy: The Silver Lantern Club’ #2 – A Locked-Room Mystery

Writer: Mike Mignola, Chris Roberson, Christopher Mitten Artist: Ben Stenbeck Letterer: Clem Robins Colorist: Michelle Madsen Cover Artist: Mike Mignola, Christopher Mitten, Dave Stewart

The Silver Lantern Club might be the answer to gender and race representation set in Victorian London. Sir Edward Grey and Sir Simon Bruttenholm are both white and Englishmen; Niss Sarah Jewell is a woman with a taste for kicking butts, Lady Bai is Asian and Major Singh is Sikh.

Each issue will bring us fun and engaging narratives where extraordinary mysteries can be solved, after a fashion, in a mix of occult and mystery that also reminds me of that wonderful book where Cthulhu meets Sherlock Holmes: Shadows over Baker Street, remember that one?
