Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you... Water Closet Press
Available now from Water Closet Press – the brainchild of comic creators Richard Worth and Jordan Oliver – is the second issue of an engaging new title perhaps enigmatically titled Ladies and Gentlemen.
The team describe Ladies and Gentlemen as a comic "packed with adventure, mystery, romance, moustaches and monocles.
"It follows the adventure of The Gentry," writer Richard tells us, "a team of Victorian crime fighters. It’s a love letter to Silver Age comics, magicians and myths."
The team have plunged into their carefully-crafted alternate world with aplomb, as you can see for yourself, as the entire first issue of the comic is available to read online here on the Water Closet Press web site. Drawn in a wash style by Canadian Jordan, there's an fantastic intensity to the work that forgives some of the perhaps occasionally cluttered layouts.
