The World in Deeper Inspection is about the life and times of Alcott B. Grimsley, a detective who helps to bring peace to the recently dead. Whether it’s recovering a lost head or finding the murderer, no case is impossible Grimsley to crack. He also happens to be the only Ministry-certified detective around, so he has to deal with incompetent quacks threatening his beloved profession, of which he is pioneer. Luckily he has a supportive arsenal of friends – his giant of an assistant, an intellectual and demure vampire (who keeps Brookham Night together), a life-loving banshee, and a mysterious eternal wanderer. Together they solve cases, make sense of the quirks and novelties of an increasingly modern world, and grapple with their own stories, while maintaining the strong platonic love for each other. As time goes on however, Grimsley discovers more and more about the unknown history of the world, revealing incomprehensible secrets and premonitions. He soon realises in the midst of it all that the fate of one man lies in his hands, and in that man’s hands lie the fate of the world. - - - It is also a visually experimental comic, focusing on the power and flexibility of visuals to convey and magnify narrative. Storytelling is also given emphasis, not only through visuals, but through the characters. What the medium has the potential to offer is explored here.
