This quote from Charles' article launched my quest ... it had me at "BETH"
Two years ago at Comic-Con I bumped into Madeleine Holly-Rosing, author of the steampunk webcomic Boston Metaphysical Society. At that point, the comic's first chapter had just been published. It introduced the story’s existential threat: the Shifter, an evil being from a parallel dimension, who terrorizes late 19th-century Boston. Also introduced are the three main protagonists: former Pinkerton detective Samuel Hunter, medium and spirit photographer Caitlin O’Sullivan, and scientist Granville Woods. In later chapters, the trio is joined in the fight against the Shifter by BETH, a group made up of Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, and Harry Houdini. I was happy to learn from Holly-Rosing that her webcomic is doing well.
Looked around online and delighted to learn that Madeleine was a fellow exhibitor at Big Wow convention. Here's Madeleine at her table at the show...
Madeleine found and hired her collaborators on the comic .... Art by Emily Hu. Coloring by Gloria Caeli and Fahrize Kamaputra; Lettering by Troy Peteri
