Minky Woodcock Returns in The Girl Who Electrified Tesla in November

Titan Comics and Hard Case Crime have announced the return of the critically acclaimed Minky Woodcock hardboiled detective series in a brand-new graphic novel arriving in stores on November 9, 2021. Written and illustrated by award-winning artist, author, director, and playwright Cynthia von Buhler, Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Electrified Tesla also features stunning cover art by the legendary Robert McGinnis, poster artist for classic films such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s and the original James Bond movies.

Minky’s new adventure is set during World War II, nearly two decades after the events of the first volume (Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Handcuffed Houdini) and pits the talented female detective against another sinister and twisted conspiracy when she gets involved with world-renowned inventor Nikola Tesla, Nazi agents, and the race to command the world’s first weapon of mass destruction. Based on extensive historical research by von Buhler, the story teams the fictional Minky Woodcock with real-world figures such as the ground-breaking performer Josephine Baker, who secretly spied for the French during the war; Nazi agent Otto Skorzency; multiple generations of the J.P. Morgan family, driven by greed to stifle Tesla’s inventions; and Dr. John Trump, Donald Trump’s scientist uncle, who was recruited by the FBI to investigate Tesla’s design for a death ray.

Minky Woodcock: The Girl Who Electrified Tesla will be available from comic shops, bookstores and digital platforms on November 9, 2021.
