Product Details


“Tidhar (By Force Alone) propels an ensemble of historical figures and literary characters through a knotty and thrilling plot packed with intrigue and visceral action, illustrated with a keen eye for historical detail by McCaffrey (Anno Dracula–1895: Seven Days in Mayhem).” - Library Journal Starred Review

“The story is clever and fast-paced, and its emphasis on women is refreshing and inspired … Adler is pure entertainment, establishing a strong, intelligent heroine and a foundation that leaves the door open for future (past) adventures.” – Foreword Reviews

“Fantasy Award winner Tidhar (By Force Alone) keeps a constant breathless pace of chases … twists and derring-do aplenty” – Publisher’s Weekly

“There’s something massive at work behind the mash-up hook of this story, and the more you read the deeper into that sense of scale you get. It’s an addictive feeling” – SyFy Wire

“Combines dynamic, manga-esque linework with an ornate, Bryan Talbot-style eye for detail, meticulously designing everything from an Art Nouveau concert poster to some authentic periodicals of the day” – SFX

“With complex artwork and a story that puts a unique spin on some of the 19th century’s greatest literary heroines, this is one adventure you’ll want to sign-on for” – Kabooooom

“From fans of the various literary properties to those who have only minimal information on any of them, “Adler” #1 is both educational and entertaining” – Multiversity Comics

“A highly detailed and enjoyable adventure” – Monkeys Fighting Robots

“At its finest, Adler is a delightful, progressive penny dreadful that reminds readers of its Victorian inspirations” – Comic Watch

“A fun and unique story … filled with memorable characters and the plot delivers a pulp-style mystery perfectly … a truly memorable tale.” – But Why Tho

“The rapid pacing of the story leaves you breathless from enjoyment, the exited bombast of explosion, gunfire, and murder is deliciously overt and there’s a unique thrill to seeing more modern sensibilities overlaid on classic figures … Ridiculous and riveting, Adler is a (penny) dreadfully fabulous story” – SciFi Now

“A wonderful take on historical fiction. The fictional characters from various forms of literature and historical figures are breathtakingly brought to life in this greater-than-life journey” – The Fandom Post

“A thoroughly entertaining alternate history tale – recommended. 9/10” – SciFi Bulletin

“Tidhar and McCaffrey form a great team that keeps you interested and intrigued from the opening panels right up to the end. There’s nothing elementary about this one” – Forces of Geek

“Fun and exciting …  [a] fast-paced, thrilling adventure. I’d love to see more Adler graphic novels in the future, as there are endless possibilities with this fresh take on familiar literary characters.” – SciFi Chick

Adler, in which the opera singer-turned-adventuress teams up with other fictional women — Lady Havisham! Jane Eyre! — as well as real historical figures — Marie Curie! Queen Victoria! — to protect the British Empire from an angry African queen and a vampiric assassin” – Book Riot
