Houdini and Conan Doyle venture into Edge of the Unknown

Horror website Bloody Disgusting reports that Jack Reher (Red Machine) is penning a live-action adaptation of Jon Vinson's 2009 graphic novel, Edge of the Unknown, which features Houdini and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle investigating a series of brutal murders in 1920's Hollywood.

The project is said to be "out to directors." No studio or producer mentioned, so this is probably an independent endeavor, as was the original graphic novel.

I admit I had not even heard of this book until I saw this article. Happily, I was able to find that you can still order all four issues, or a new 160-page Collected Edition, at Indy Planet.

Judging by this sample artwork, I'd say this endeavor looks bloody cool!


  1. Hey! Thanks for the post John! I'm the artist for the graphic novel and I got a nice thing going on for the buyers of the book! Just drop by my blog:

    Glad I found this place and keep the good work!
    All the best!

  2. Thank you, Marco. I've posted up your link and offer in a fresh post. I've also ordered the book and look forward to reading it. Keep up the great work yourself, and thanks for finding us. :)
