Drawn! has a review of Kevin Dart's cool new art book about a 1906s Japanese spy girl, Yuki 7, called "Seductive Espionage"

A world slowly started to form in my head and I could feel hundreds of backlogged ideas and unfinished stories suddenly collide into one cohesive mass. Later on, I realized Yuki 7 had been building for years even though she arrived in a flash of insight.
