Crisscrossing the literary genres of murder/mystery, action/adventure, historical drama, horror, science fiction, and  steampunk, "The Continentals" by writer/creator Darryl Hughes and artist Monique MacNaughton, creators of the 2007 Glyph Comic Award nominated scifi adventure webcomic "G.A.A.K: Groovy Ass Alien Kreatures", is a modern re-imagining of the classic 19th century Sherlock Holmes "who done it" murder mystery created for the 21st century webcomic fan.

  1889. Barely a year after the mysterious Jack the Ripper's 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.

Cutting Room (cuttingroom) says: Gorgeous art.
Maid Joy (maid_joy) says: The tree blurring really messed my eyes up.
Holland Wilson (sammi) says: It always sucks when a story in installments is very good. I don't want to have to wait for the next development in the story, yet I must. So, damn you for keeping me anticipating each Monday. Keep up the good work.
Darryl Hughes (thedeeman) says: What's a mystery without suspense? And what's suspense without a little breathless anticip...ation? LOL! :)

Glad you'e enjoying TC. XD

NOTE: I wish more of you would leave comments and tell me and Monique what you think of TC. Ask us questions you may have. Or whatever. Just fire away.

Darrel Spurlock (djs_ronin) says: HMMM, Agents 86 and 99.  Is someone GETtting a bit SMART on their comics?  Not sure if others caught the reference but I think its hilarious and I cant wait to see if they follow in the steps of those who follow after them at C.O.N.T.R.O.L.
Peter Vine (prestwick) says: Little did the butler know that his employer was actually a reviewer for "World of Whisky" magazine and had deadlines to meet for reviews!
Darryl Hughes (thedeeman) says:

Casey Goranson (seadog-driftwood) says:

Interesting expression, "blackheart". If you mean "blaggard", that's actually from "black-guard", which originally referred to low-class servants somehow associated with the colour black, an association whose specifics are no longer known and dates from the early 1500s; the modern derogatory meaning comes from the late 1500s.

The wry humor is perfect for a British tale.

I love the way you use different types of lines for the shading. Very creative use.
