Description

An era-jumping murder mystery set in London, now a Netflix series!

LONDON, 1890. As Jack the Ripper stalks the streets, Inspector Edmond Hillinghead-the city’s most diligent detective-applies his skills to an even harder case. The victim is an unidentified male. The killer may have powerful allies. And Edmond’s darkest secret may be exposed if he gets too close to the truth….

LONDON, 1940. As the Blitz rains bombs down on the city, Inspector Charles Whiteman reigns over its streets. He escaped the Nazis in Poland only to run the very rackets he’s supposed to shut down. But when he discovers a mysterious murder victim, his double life may be destroyed…

LONDON, 2014. As racist rioters wreak havoc in the name of their prejudiced patriotism, Detective Sergeant Shahara Hasan leads the fight against them. As a Muslim cop, she’s English to the core. But the corpse she’s uncovered may reveal something rotten deep below the surface…

LONDON, 2050. As the mind-scrambling pulsewave plagues the last survivors of a terrifying techno-apocalypse, the amnesiac young woman known only as Maplewood can barely understand the body she’s discovered. But this ritual killing is identical to those from decades past-and the link between them all is stronger, and stranger, than anyone could dream…

In BODIES, writer Si Spencer teams up with Meghan Hetrick, Dean Ormston, Tula Lotay and Phil Winslade-four incredible artists, one for each era-to slice open the modern murder mystery and uncover the strange secret heart within! Collects issues #1-8.

Praise for Bodies on Netflix:

“Ambitious, tense, explosive: this genre-blurring whodunnit travels time to visit four detectives investigating the same murder – in different eras. It’s exceptionally good value.” - The Guardian

“Bodies is seriously binge-worthy TV. It'll leave your mind blown and you screaming at the screen with all its twists and turns. Make sure to have your snacks ready as you're not going to want to take your eyes off the telly.” - Cosmopolitan
