Toshiro is a new graphic novel from Dark Horse by writer Jai Nitz (Dream Thief) and artist Janusz Pawlak. According to Nitz, it’s a mash-up of “Victorian steampunk, alternate history, Lovecraftian monsters, and the magic of Tezuka’s Astro Boy.” The story involved a mechano-samurai named Toshiro who travels back to a Victorian clockwork world, fighting Lovecraftian terrors.
The book comes out in June, but to give it a bit of promo, the Nitz/Pawlak team has re-imagined The beat Herself as a victorian sufragette in this exclusive piece.
I can’t say for certain that had I been born 110 years ago that I would have been marching for the vote, access to reproductive care and other basic rights that women didn’t have in 1914.
But I’m pretty sure I would have.
