The Glass Scientists: Volume Two

by S. H. Cotugno

Part of: The Glass Scientists

The second book in the YA graphic novel series about star-crossed lovers and misunderstood monsters, which is already a webcomic phenomenon!

All Dr. Henry Jekyll wanted to do was make London a safe place for rogue scientists. That’s why he and his best friend Robert created the Society for Arcane Sciences in the first place, and why their upcoming exhibition to show the public all the incredible things they can do for the world is so important. But ever since Frankenstein arrived, nothing has gone according to plan….

And now Jekyll’s dirty little secret is about to become a huge problem. Hyde, his devilishly devious alter-ego, is fed up with being jerked around and Jekyll not letting him out to play. And he’s just discovered a new trick that will allow him to take the driver’s seat of their shared body. With Hyde behind the wheel, it’s not just the impeding exhibition and the future of the society in jeopardy. The ruffian threatens to destroy something that’s even more dear to Jekyll: his relationship with Robert. Will Jekyll be able to regain control of his mind, body, and life, or will he lose everything he has been fighting for?

Volume Two collects Chapters 8-12 of this beloved webcomic, which is available in print for the first time ever. It also features loads of exclusive bonus content including a brand-new prequel story (Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Meet Dracula!!!), a behind-the-scenes look at the comic’s origins, and more!

"A wickedly sharp adventure!" —ND Stevenson, New York Times bestselling and Eisner Award–winning creator of Nimona and co-creator of the Lumberjanes series

"The Glass Scientists is a madcap adventure through a world of potions and monsters. Cotugno is a storytelling force, and their vibrant art and sense of character pulls the reader directly into the cobblestone streets. This is a comic that you won't be able to put down." —Molly Knox Ostertag, New York Times bestselling creator of The Witch Boy series and The Girl from the Sea

"Stunning, lush, and delightfully whimsical." —Ngozi Ukazu, New York Times bestselling creator of the Check, Please! series
"The Glass Scientists is stunning, heartfelt, and has one of the most interesting takes on Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde I’ve ever seen. Be prepared to fall in love with every character, creature, and affront to God." —Dana Terrace, creator of The Owl House

"Cotugno is an incredible storyteller and illustrator. With passionate and loveable characters, The Glass Scientists brings you into a world of magic, science, and mysteries. It’s one you’ll immediately get sucked into and want to be a part of." —Daron Nefcy, creator of Star vs. the Forces of Evil

"Fast-paced and funny." —ICv2

"This imaginative, beautifully illustrated work… explores themes of identity, imposter syndrome, and living authentically in a world that doesn’t want you to." Kirkus Reviews on Volume 1
"The detailed, jewel-toned artwork packs intriguing details into just about every panel, and the gothic atmosphere is in fun contrast to the cartoonish figures and action."Booklist

“A smaller cast of characters gives this volume structure, depth of character, and a dynamic plot. The work features gorgeous illustrations and well-handled issues surrounding LGBTQ+ friendships and romance, classism, and subversion of the patriarchy . . . A visually enticing work that effectively explores complex themes.”Kirkus Reviews on Volume 2
