How far would you go in search of a missing loved one?

Could you infiltrate a hellish Victorian workhouse where steam-powered engines control your body? If so, then enter the world of The Marionette Unit; a time of control, obsession and monstrous machines. Beatrice Shaw is searching for her missing sister, Melodie, last seen employed at a workhouse run by shadowy industrialist, Henri Dubré inventor of The Marionette Units.

He has forged man and machine together to create an abominable dream of never-ending efficiency. As Beatrice enters this terrifying world, she must find a way to break free of the clutches around her and confront Dubré before all hope is lost of ever finding her sister again. The Marionette Unit is a thrilling and terrifying Victorian mystery from filmmakers Azhur Saleem and James Boyle, and illustrated by renowned British comic artist Warwick Johnson-Cadwell (Tank Girl, Gungle, Nelson, 24x7, Off-Life).

"Cracking stuff, deserving of the praise it's getting"
