In the First Tale, we follow Phillip Wiseman, newcomer to Vertigo City's resistance--an organization bent on toppling the tyrannous Weimar Corporation. We discover, through Phillip this shady underworld he's entered filled with secret agents, corrupt police, wise-cracking automatons and the alluring mysterious Liss Hunt.
Sedgwick paints a glorious world that's as fully immersive as any seedy backstreet featured in a Sherlock Holmes mystery. The characters sparkle with clever dialogue, thrilling action sequences, and a plot full of twists and turns. It ultimately left me eagerly awaiting the Second Tale and any that might follow. Stamp my ticket, I'm ready to go back to Vertigo City
