It is the end of the 19th century, and the city of New York
has been plagued by strange events - fish falling from the
sky, odd lights in the night, bizarre collections of microbial
goo... and disappearing citizens. It's up to one man to expose
the truth behind these mysteries. A mild mannered librarian
by day, Charles Fort is a fearless investigator by night,
seeking out the truth and exposing the bizarre to the light
Fort: Prophet of the Unexplained is an interesting release.
The hero of this graphic novel is actually based on the real-life
Charles Fort, chronicler of unexplained event - although I
doubt that anything as bizarre as the tale told here would
have actually happened to him.
someone, or something, is rampaging through late 19th century
America, killing innocent humans, Fort is thought to be behind
it. And, with an alien from another dimension, he sets sets
out to capture the real monster and, in doing so, prove his
collection is presented in simple black and white ink drawings,
which help give the story an olde world feel to it. The story
itself is simple and to the point and there are no real surprises,
but it is entertaining enough.
Not the sort of novel to get you thinking, but still an
interesting edition to Titan's range.
