Boston Metaphysical Society

Boston Metaphysical Society: A Penny Dreadful Review

Here is a delightful Steampunk webcomic for those of you who enjoy exploring the aethernet. I recommend navigating your way to www.bostonmetaphysicalsociety.com and enjoying The Boston Metaphysical Society by Madeleine Holly-Rosing with art by Emily Hu.
Miss Caitlin O’Sullivan desires to pick up her late father’s work of spirit photography. Her father’s business partner, Samuel Hunter, a grizzled paranormal detective with a few secrets of his own, is against it. He feels it is far too dangerous. She makes him take her on as an assistant and medium anyway. Meanwhile the secret society B.E.T.H., founded by Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and Harry Houdini are tracking an entity called The Shifter, and entity that may have killed Mr. Hunter’s wife…
This comic has set up quite an interesting world. Mr. Hunter is right – it may be too dangerous for the compassionate Miss O’Sullivan. Or she might rise to the occasion and surprise everyone, including herself. Machinery and the supernatural interact in exciting ways, ways which have not yet been fully explained. I look forward to learning more. I was hooked on the story within the first ten pages.
I give this comic three point five gears out of five. I liked it and I will continue to follow it. I recommend you follow it as well!
