The Thrill Electric
The Thrill Electric is a free to read online enhanced comic series set in Victorian Manchester and tells the story of Emily Bagley, a sassy and intelligent young woman who breaks with tradition and becomes a telegraph worker. In addition, there’s a whole host of characters to follow through the series as they tackle issues of sexual identity at a time when it was illegal to be gay; trying your best to better yourself in the face of peer pressure from gangs; the dangers of creating a false impression of who you are online; and female issues of body image and sexual inequality.
The Thrill Electric is written by comic writing duo Leah Moore and John Reppion, designed by Manga aficionado Emma Viecelli and illustrated by the all-female comic book studio Windflower.
