Better Angels: A Kate Warne Adventure Stars America’s First Female Detective

BOOM! Studios has announced a brand new original graphic novel Better Angels: A Kate Warne Adventure, from Emmy and Eisner Award-winning writer Jeff Jensen and acclaimed artist George Schall, inspired by the true story of Kate Warne, America’s first female detective, and her singular achievement—thwarting a plot by Confederate radicals to kill Abraham Lincoln.

In 1861, America is at a crossroads. Abraham Lincoln, the man tasked with healing the nation, and his family are the targets of a conspiracy to assassinate them. Their safety – and the future of the American experiment – hinges on the success of a new kind of lawman, known by a word still novel in the culture: detective. 

But there was only one detective whose extraordinary cleverness, versatility and mystery made them a singular individual who could save the Lincolns. Her name was Kate Warne. This is the true story of America’s first woman detective, who saved the life of her country’s greatest president and changed the course of history forever.

Better Angels: A Kate Warne Adventure will be available for sale in October 2021.
