Dr. Korvus makes comic shops safe for humanity
This March, comic fans will have the opportunity to delve into the adventures of the mad scientist Dr. Korvus, his cybernetic rat assistant, Plato, and former policeman Tom Wilson, as they protect Victorian London from an ancient menace. Having made his debut in Shriek in October, this will be the good doctor’s first full appearance, as he takes center stage in the first issue of Dr. Korvus: Children of the Abyss, a four-issue series issued by FantaCo Enterprises. The books, written by Eric Stanway and illustrated by Jeff Bonivert, are adapted from Stanway’s series of steampunk novels. In this, their first adventure, the trio are faced with a race of ancient creatures, rising from out of the ground, threatening the populace of Victorian London, their objective being the overthrow of the human race. Dr. Korvus, a mad visionary, stands in their way, with his technologically augmented rat, Plato, by his side. Together with Wilson, they brave certain death in their struggle against the invaders. The series, which begins in March, will continue bimonthly until September, when the final battle will play out. Further exploits will ensue, with adaptations of The Horror of Alderley Edge and Blood at Croglin Grange. Dr. Korvus: Children of the Abyss No. 1 will be released in March,
