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 Creators

Hello! I am Sabrina Cotugno, and I write and draw this webcomic! I am an animation and comics artist currently working for Disney Television Animation. My past projects include: Storyboard artist on Gravity Falls, storyboard artist/director on Star vs. the Forces of Evil, and director on The Owl House. For specific episodes I worked on, please see my IMDB page here! I graduated from Calarts in Character Animation in 2012 and have also studied at Gobelins L'Ecole de L'Image in Paris.

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 love anything with bubbling potions and antique-y looking medical equipment in it.

The colorist and background inker for The Glass Scientists (from chapter eight on) is Julia Elliot! Julia Elliott, also known simply by Velo, is a young Canadian artist who enjoys illustrating and designing characters from books, podcasts and from their own creations. They plan to one day work in the animation industry. They can usually be found on their Twitter page.

For chapters 1-8 my color cleanup artist was Tiina Purin! Tiina is a lifelong biology nerd born and raised in the wastelands of Florida. Her  specialty is creature design and she's been crafting characters for numerous private clients since 2003. Her work has been featured in several collaborative, themed card decks, calendars, magazines and published art collections. You can find her work at her website.
