The Story

The city of London is not the best place to be a mad scientist. Thirty years after the death of the infamous Dr. Frankenstein, its citizens have gotten awfully good at killing creatures, destroying laboratories, and generally wrecking anything new or strange-looking. Soon, every scientist within city limits will find themselves behind bars, unless someone can turn their luck around, and fast.

This someone, it turns out, is a respected gentleman, an illustrious socialite– who also happens to be a scientist himself. He believes that rogue science can survive– and thrive!– as he has, if only they could improve their reputation in the public eye– and he plans to give them one hell of an image makeover. Together with his Society for Arcane Science, he can end the reign of fear and superstition that has held London captive for decades so long as no one discovers his one little secret, a secret that could ruin him and unravel the lives of everyone he knows.

This man’s name is Dr. Henry Jekyll.

The Artists

Hello! I am Sabrina Cotugno, and I write and draw stories. I graduated from Calarts in Character Animation in 2012 and presently work as a storyboard artist at Disney Television Animation. The Glass Scientists is the story I write and illustrate when I am not at work, eating, or sleeping. I first got obsessed with Victorian scientific romances in highschool after reading Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (well, okay, it was the soundtrack to the silly broadway musical adaptation, but still) and my tastes have changed embarrassingly little since then. I will automatically love anything with bubbling potions and antique-y looking medical equipment in it.
