Daphne Byrne in Review

In Daphne Byrne, writer Laura Marks and artist Kelley Jones take us on a tour through the iconography of late nineteenth-century Gothic. The comic depicts place in a New York where séances reach out to the hereafter, crumbling graveyards provide places of refuge, dusty libraries hold forbidden secrets, occult societies practice unhallowed rites, and the emotions repressed by polite society are prone to bursting forth in the guise of warped visions.
