    “Joe Golem: Occult Detective—The Drowning City” is a comicbook adaptation of the illustrated prose novel Joe Golem and the Drowning City by Mike Mignola and Christopher Golden. This week the five-issue miniseries wraps up, but we’re not done with the adaptation just yet. ‘The Drowning City’ is only the first half; the second half, ‘The Conjurors,’ comes later this year…

    As always, Dave Palumbo is doing an amazing job on the covers. We spoke a little to editor Katii O’Brien about ‘The Conjurors.’ “We’re picking up where we left off at the end of ‘The Drowning City,’ same creative team and all,” she said. “But this arc will feel different, we’re going to get a lot more golem than anyone has seen before. We’re going to get a lot more here than just the events of the second half of the novel, and we’ll get a few connections to “Baltimore” as well. These stories are so internal, despite all the monsters and the Outer Dark and the mad scientist, they are about a very relatable human struggle to overcome our own fate.”

    As for the future of the series beyond ‘The Conjurors,’ O’Brien was more tight lipped. “All I will say is that we are working on early plans for more of that universe,” she teased.
