"True Detective meets Encyclopedia Brown but set in a girls' orphanage." —Rich Barrett, Mental Floss

A loving and hilarious pastiche of the detective genre. Legendary kid detective "Pops" Popowski prefers to work alone. But when she's saddled with a rookie partner named Mary Branwell, Pops won't stop until she discovers who offed Mary's parents, whether Branwell wants her to or not.

Aleks Sennwald is a writer and storyboard artist for the hit TV show Adventure Time. Pete Toms is the Ignatz-nominated author of In Post. The Short Con is their first graphic novel.
