A webcomic about a Victorian Era Jersey Devil detective and his friends, in a world full of the unknown and the strange. By Reimena Yee
Announcement | 11 May 2017
Hey everyone! To new readers: welcome to The World in Deeper Inspection.
TWiDI is a big comic that primarily centers on Alcott Grimsley, a Jersey Devil detective whose job is to bring peace to the recently-dead. It is usually about ghosts and creatures of the Night, Victorian culture and adapting into modernity, macabre humour and spoopy scurry fun. But sometimes it focuses on the other characters, and The Carpet Merchant of Konstantiniyya is the first of these stories. It’s about Zeynel, a vampire who is the ambassador of Brookham Night and is Grimsley’s close friend and informant, and Vol I is his backstory, Vol II is his hero’s journey.
You don’t have to read the rest of TWiDI to read The Carpet Merchant. TCM is written as a standalone, but it also introduces readers into the world of Night, slowly.
