Sailor Twain: Or: The Mermaid in the Hudson (Comic Excerpt)

Mark Siegel

In honor of Sea Monster Week we bring you this 14-page excerpt from the upcoming graphic novel Sailor Twain, out on October 2nd from First Second.

One hundred years ago. On the foggy Hudson River, a riverboat captain rescues an injured mermaid from the waters of the busiest port in the United States. A wildly popular—and notoriously reclusive—author makes a public debut. A French nobleman seeks a remedy for a curse. As three lives twine together and race to an unexpected collision, the mystery of the Mermaid of the Hudson deepens.

Beautiful smudgy style, love how the artist has used the texture of the paper to such great effect. Can't wait to see more - would defintitely buy this after reading the excerpt!
