A little Halloween reading: Agnes Quill in ‘Left Behind’
Somehow I nearly missed that, just in time for Halloween, Dave Roman and Jason Ho have been serializing a new Agnes Quill story, “Left Behind.”
If you’ve never read the webcomic, you’re in for a treat: The title character is a teen detective who lives in Legerdemain, a fog-filled Victorian city built around an enormous cemetery the size of New York’s Central Park. There, Agnes grapples regularly with trapped spirits, zombies, cursed souls and the like. In “Left Behind,” she takes a much-needed vacation, only to discover that supernatural menaces aren’t confined to the city limits.
Agnes’ earlier adventures were collected in 2006 by SLG Publishing for a print edition called Agnes Quill: An Anthology of Mystery. If you like “Left Behind” and want to read more, the book is still in print.
