The Thrill Electric

The Thrill Electric, an online comic created by Leah Moore and John Reppion, Emma Vieceli, Windflower Studio and LittleLoud for the UK’s Channel 4, is now available as a free download on iTunes.

This 150-page comic is set in Victorian Manchester and “demonstrates the extraordinary parallels between the Internet Age and the Telegraph Age,” according to Reppion and Moore’s blog. The story follows the lives of the young women and men working at The Electrical and International Telegraph Company, touching on issues related to cyber bullying, gangs and sexual identity, among others. Check out the trailer after the jump.
