BOOM! Studios has released another look at Better Angels: A Kate Warne Adventure, from Jeff Jensen and George Schail.
In 1861, America is at a crossroads. Abraham Lincoln, the man tasked with healing the nation, and his family are the targets of a conspiracy to assassinate them. Their safety – and the future of the American experiment – hinges on the success of a new kind of lawman, known by a word still novel in the culture: detective.
But there was only one detective whose extraordinary cleverness, versatility and mystery made them a singular individual who could save the Lincolns. Her name was Kate Warne. This is the true story of America’s first woman detective, who saved the life of her country’s greatest president and changed the course of history forever.
I am very keen on reading this story when it arrives on October 27, 2021, as Kate Warne is such an interesting, and little known figure from American history.
