DoomRocket Exclusive Preview: BOOM! Studios' 'Wicked Things' #6

by Jarrod Jones. Poor Lottie Grote. Despite the glamour that surrounds the life of an intrepid amateur investigator, actually being one more often than not lands you in all sorts of scrapes. One minute you’re caught in the middle of a terribly fascinating murder mystery, the next you’re doing time at the Boyle Street Police Station serving jaded detectives tea and chocolate hobnobs in a muted gingham pinny. Will wonders ever cease. (Seriously. Will they?)

But this is Charlotte Grote we’re talking about! Life’s many twists and turns can’t keep a good junior detective down, and Boyle Street’s Finest see scads of potential from our cherubic-cheeked Lottie, being the churning storm of wit and brimming optimism that she is.

As we approach what is the final issue of Wicked Things, the absolutely wonderful crime-and-yuks mini-series from John Allison, Max Sarin, Whitney Cogar, and Jim Campbell, Lottie is offered one more chance to prove her investigatory bonafides. A whole buncha crime is about to descend upon London’s toniest casino, and only Lottie Grote has smarts enough to smash it!

But there’s still the small matter of that murder… the one somebody went to a lot of bother framing Lottie for. And there’s still sweet, dear Claire, devoted ally in Lottie’s life of intrigue, who is adrift in a sea of incriminating evidence and beginning to entertain the nagging doubts rolling around behind those Warby Parkers…
