Mulholland Books has an Excerpt from the Graphic Novel Mystery Men

Mystery Men by David Liss and Patrick Zircher

The graphic novel Mystery Men — which collects the five separate issues of the comic published last year — is released this week and the folks at Mulholland Books have an excerpt.

Written by David Liss and illustrated by Patrick Zircher, Mystery Men introduces all-new, never-before-seen heroes of the 1930s. With a new evil washing over an unsuspecting New York City, the Operative, the Aviatrix, the Surgeon, the Revenant and Achilles blast through dangers from blood-soaked mob warehouses to monster-infested mansions, and fight to blow the lid off a conspiracy that could bring the nation itself to its knees.

David Liss is the author of several stand-alone crime novels in addition to his series featuring private investigator Benjamin Weaver. The first book in that series, A Conspiracy of Paper, published in 2000, was the winner of multiple awards, including the Edgar Award for Best First Novel and the Macavity Award for Best First Novel.

Patrick Zircher has illustrated a number of series including Iron Man, New Warriors, Thunderbolts, X-Men and X-Men 2.
