Originally published in single magazine form as The Spire no 1-8, ©2015-2016.
Graphic novel format.
The Spire is a mountain of metal and stone, a vast city that rises out of the middle of the radioactive desert. Filled with twisting tunnels, grinding elevators, and ancient machinery, it is home to over a million human and non-human residents. Shå, the last of the species known as the Medusi, is responsible for keeping the hodgepodge of forgotten technology and new biology safe as Commander of the City Watch. But when a string of grisly murders are committed just as a new Baroness of the Spire is about to be sworn in, Shå will have to find the killer and bring that individual to justice. With the new Baroness housing a deep hatred of non-humans, Shå will have more than one enemy at her back as a mystery buried in the history of the Spire unravels around her.
REVIEWS & SUMMARIESSummary / Annotation
Challenging and beautiful submitted by Andrewrmolina on June 25, 2018, 7:39am The Spire is a fast-paced tale of romance and racial tension set in a genre-bending world reminiscent of China Mieville's Bas-Lag series. The characters are wonderfully nuanced, such that even the flatulent comic relief is imbued with depth and pathos. However,building such an intricate world in eight issues requires careful attention from the reader. The complexity makes this a book worth rereading, and the quality of the art makes it a joy to do so.
