Sir Edward, Witchfinder is created by Mike Mignola, the mind behind Hellboy and B.P.R.D., and this omnibus is also set in the same universe they are. Sir Edward is a mortal man, a commoner knighted by Queen Victoria for saving her from a hex attempted by a coven of witches.
Sir Edward uses his wits, enchanted blade, and guns to kill vampires in London, zombies in the Wild West, and eel monsters in Unland. As usual with Mignola, the dialogue is rich with world-building, mythological references, and gallows humor. The pacing ramps up from vague unsettling dread to ever-present terror with bloody supernatural violence throughout. Not for the squeamish or faint of heart, teens will love this rich world and it’s raw, brutal beauty.
