Hard Case Crime Comics steps out of its hard-boiled shell for the period piece fantasy-tinged limited series. The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini, set in the surprisingly sexy world of 1920s magic. Plucky, rabbit-loving MINKY WOODCOCK (she's a penpal of Agatha Christie!) is tired of being dismissed by her private detective father, Benedick Woodcock of Benedick & Son, who only sees her as a secretary. So when Daddy's out of town, she decides to tackle a case on her own -- one that involves spiritualism, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, and celebrated escape artist Harry Houdini (and the conspiracy theories still swirling around his death).
And you've just gotta love the alternate cover (pictured) by legendary pulp artist Robert McGinnis.
American artist Cynthia von Buhler (aka "Countess von Buhler"), a gleefully eccentric artist, performer, playwright and children's book author, both writes and draws this saucy take on the shamus game.
