The Case of the Missing Men

The Case of The Missing Men is beautifully illustrated in a style reminiscent of children's pulp classics like Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys.

Kris Bertin & Alexander Forbes

The Case of the Missing Men is the first part of an ongoing mystery thriller set in a strange and remote East Coast village called Hobtown. The story follows a gang of young teens who have made it their business to investigate each and every one of their town's bizarre occurrences as The Teen Detective Club (a registered afterschool program).

Their small world of missing pets and shed-fires is turned upside down when real-life kid adventurer and globetrotter Sam Finch comes to town and enlists them in their first real case, the search for his missing father. In doing so, he and the teens stumble upon a terrifying world of rural secret societies, weird-but-true folk mythology, subterranean lairs and an occultist who can turn men into dogs.
