PI CHARLES doesn’t quite get it. Sure, he can solve a case, but being a robot he doesn’t understand all this ’emotion’ stuff. What he does have is a machine drive to solve mysteries and a hard exterior.

Created by Joshua Sherwell (@JoshuaSherwell), ‘PI Charles: Volume One’ is a 60+ page graphic novel, featuring 5 new short stories (between 7 and 22 pages), written and drawn by some amazing up-and-coming talents! Lettering will be handled by the fantastic Mike Stock(@sheriffstocky).

PI Charles first featured in VS Magazine back in 2013. The new volume is an atmospheric read with dark humour. If you want to get a feel for the comic, you can find ‘The Cabin’ story in its entirety here!

The funds (hopefully) raised through Kickstarter will go towards covering the cost of the print run.
