In this meticulously researched and fantastically pictorialized volume, Frank Reade and his peerless progeny are brought to life in all their globetrotting escapades with amazing electric airships, submarines, and robots, as well as historical figures like Houdini and Geronimo. Frank Reade did exist, but only in the pages of 19th-century dime novels. While the authors have completely re-imagined and enriched those tales into a family biography, they have also restored the incredible original engravings - most of which haven't been seen in print in more than a century - and now present these lost pieces of Americana alongside their own creatively realized imagery. Part science fiction and part alternate history, Frank Reade is equally as imaginative as the authors' previous epic volume, Boilerplate, and presents an even more rollicking narrative.
