It’s been several months since the events of The Yellow M, but the evil of Professor Septimus still echoes around London.  Important figures of the capital’s jet set come together around the questionable values the mad scientist defended. 

Olrik is forced to resort to opium in order to forget he was guinea pig. As for Mortimer, he too is trying, albeit for more humanist reasons, to revive certain aspects of Septimus’s work – to Blake’s extreme concern…

Wow. Just look at that cover.  A poster if ever there was one -so why isn't it?  Hmm?

There isn't much I can tell you about this book that you won't have read in the blurb above.  The art, of course, is superb and the story -can I say "Wow" twice in a review.  This is seriously like reading a comic version of a major Hollywood science fiction thriller.  A couple of times I had to go back to look at pages again.

This is why Cinebook The 9th Art are the best UK comics publisher.  It is a must read!
