After a sťance gone horribly wrong, strange men wearing gas masks and rubber suits abduct 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. This deluxe limited edition collection features multiple illustrations, an exclusive print signed by the writers, and a handsome slipcase. It also includes the previously unpublished in print Joe Golem story "Joe Golem and the Copper Girl." Limited edition of 1,000 pieces.
"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 Ages 14 and up.
