Strange Detective Mysteries is a science-fiction techno-thriller fantasy where several of the leading creative minds of the early 1900s are brought together to look into the death of Edgar Allen Poe and discover a conspiracy that threatens to destroy all of time and reality. Our saga begins with famed Western lawman Bat Masterson being summoned to a mysterious meeting in 1902 New York City. Upon arriving, he finds several others have been summoned; H. G. Wells, Arthur Conan Doyle, Harry Houdini and Nikola Tesla. When they are finally greeted by their aged host, Robert Tyler, they find that this rich patron has brought them together to solve the mystery of the murder of America's foremost literary genius, Edgar Allan Poe. An individual that no one else even believes was murdered? And who are the strange men in bowler hats who observe their every move and what evil from 1888 Whitechapel has followed them to New York City? Refusal of the unbelieveable can be as dangerous as knowledge itself as our group of heroes will soon uncover. Collects issues 1-4.
