I’ve read the previews and seen some of the pages for Maestros and I’m reminded of Geoff Darrow’s work. This looks gorgeous and the story has a vibrant pop to it, so I’m in.
I saw it on a pull list elsewhere and its positioned rather low there and I wonder why more people don’t read stuff like this. This is not a rant about my tastes in content being better than others, but for its own sake, of work that tends to go unnoticed.
And in its own inimitable way, Sherlock Frankenstein also looks to be promising fun stuff.
