Miranda Keller is one of J. Edgar Hoover's first female investigators. After all she's seen in the Miskatonic Valley - a white supremacist cult, bulletproof amphibious humanoids and the
reanimated dead - she might also be the last. Now, her career and her life depend on stopping the resurrection of an Elder God.

    I wanted to like Miskatonic more than I did, or at least as much as I did at the start. The middle couple of issues ended up being more complex than I think warranted but that's the context of a monthly-ish kind of read as opposed to a sitdown reading the full book. The finale brings everything together well enough so that it makes sense and the bigger picture is showcased well. I do think Sable succeeded in his primary goal here – beyond telling a good story – that there were women agents at a very early stage of the bureau and that they served admirably and were just as capable as everyone else. I liked Miranda, and I like the subplot with Asenath as it wasn't expected. But I also like what Tom brought to the book and the little bits of nuance we got throughout the social-political aspects of the time. Read Full Review
