Lavie Tidhar announces comics mini-series Adler

Announced at San Diego Comic-Con, Lavie Tidhar will be writing a five-part creator-owned mini-series for Titan Comics.

Adler has been described by Titan as “ladies of literature action-adventure” and “The League of Extraordinary Gentlewomen”. It focuses on Irene Adler as the titular character, with a host of other female figures from classic Victorian literature.

Tidhar said, “I felt disgruntled enough with recent depictions of Irene Adler (in films/tv) as a sort of Sherlock/Moriarty plaything, to actually do something about it – and in some miraculous way, it worked!”

Tidhar described the project as “a predominantly a fun (I hope!) self-contained serial (it will be collected into a trade graphic novel at the end of the run), kind of steampunky, with a vibe a little similar to the Bookman novels.”

He will be working with artist Paul McCaffrey (Zombies Vs. Robots, TMNT: The Fugitoid). The two had previously collaborated on adult picture book Going To The Moon, about a boy with Tourette’s who wants to become an astronaut.

Tidhar is the 2012 World Fantasy Award winner of Osama. His latest novel, the superhero-themed thriller The Violent Century, will be published in October by Hodder.
