    Default The Continentals: Murder, mystery, adventure--And steampunk!!!

    
    For the folks who like a little murder, mystery, and adventure with their steam punky webcomics--THE CONTINENTALS HAS FINALLY ARRIVED!!!

    1889. Barely a year after the mysterious Jack the Rippers murderous rampage and equally mysterious disappearance the city of Mansfordshire, England is shaken by a series of brutal "mangling" murders that plunge the city into an abyss of fear.

    Investigating the case, Continental Operatives Jeffrey Tiffen Smythe and his partner the gender bending adventuress lady Fiona Fiziwigg uncover the threads that bind the murderer, his victims, the highest echelons of society, it's lowest dregs, and even the police officers investigating the case in a tangled web of mystery, adventure, intrigue, and murder that is like Sherlock Holmes, mixed with equal parts of the 60's tv show "The Avengers", with a dash of James Bond for flavor.

    The Continentals will be showing monday, wednesday, and friday for its debut week before settling into it's "mondays only " schedule. And now, what better way to start a steam punk murder/mystery--THEN WITH A PRISON BREAK!!!

    "THE DOGS OF WAR!!!"

    When the asylum guards unleash their snarling dogs on him , the escaped convict takes matters into his own hands in order not to be recaptured. Literally.

    And it just might get him reported to the ASPCA for animal cruelty

    I was hoping for more comments. But I'm guessing it's too early in the story yet to know how you feel about it.

    Sorry guys. Had a bit of a technical problem earlier and the new page wouldn't load. Webcomicsnation can get a little wonky.

    But the new page is up and running now. :)

    We've got our first offical creepy fan, guys. There's this guy (I think he's Swiss) on our mirror site who fawns over Monique's work and wants to be her "friend". That's not the creepy part. The creepiest part is that he says that if he can't be Monique's friend can he at least be friends with Fiona.

    For those of you who don't know, "Fiona" is Lady Fiona Fiziwigg our cross dressing female lead character.

    Ah, creepy fans. I feel pretty. LOL! :)

    Just because you can't see the killer in the darkness doesn't mean he isn't watching you from within it. Just because you're paranoid--Doesn't mean he isn't there waiting to kill you!!!
