The Secret Agent is the story of Mr. Verloc, a reluctant spy who is pressured by his superiors into joining an anarchist plot to blow up the Greenwich Observatory in 1886 London. This unspeakable act of terror sets the stage for a gripping political thriller, brought to life by John K. Snyder’s extraordinary comics art.
John K. Snyder III’s work has been seen in comics such as The Duckberg Times to Green Lantern and Doctor Mid-Nite. His work was previously seen in Classics Illustrated 12 Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. He was nominated for an Eisner Award in 1989 for his work on Grendel.
Joseph Conrad was a master prose stylist, widely regarded as one of the greatest English-language novelists. Writing in the heyday of the British Empire, Conrad drew upon his experiences in the French and later the British Merchant Navy to create short stories and novels that reflect aspects of a worldwide empire while also plumbing the depths of the human soul.
